“I got nothing done today,” Tracey complained to me when I arrived home last Monday.
Monday’s are Tracey’s workhorse day for working on her photography business – a day for editing on Photoshop, ordering, meeting brides and doing book work. It’s also the one day a week she has no kids, with our lot either at school or day care.

“Well, do you think it’s time to put the kids into day care for a second day?” I asked.
