11:50 am - Mother got her new stuff and she's actually happy with everything. So to celebrate that and the fact that Gr was good while the guys where there, we went for a walk in the woods. The puddles up there are froze in some really neat circular patterns. It was a really nice walk.
9:36 pm - I had to run Big E up to Rutland to get his work truck. We had dinner out, and talked the big talk about just how bad business is. Looks like maybe another week and we'll have to let all the guys go. First time we haven't had work in fourteen years. Deep breath and assume that something will come up, and we'll get through.
