Michael works the weekend shift, putting in his time being the lower ranks while my Uncle Charlie and Dad have the weekends off. They never did when I was growing up though, and I do hope Michael will eventually have weekends off before Silas has grown up entirely.

Alice and Martin will be together for two years come March, and he definitely stays in his own bed more than hers.

narrated by: Alice

Having Julia for a roommate has been great, we’ve been close friends since grade school. We don’t mind doing mundane things together ether, like meeting up on Thursday after work, and getting groceries together. Lainey was a bit of a dictator over groceries that I mostly just paid her and picked up my own stuff after work. It’s actually a decent time with Julia though.
