So my wife is out of the country this week and I have had the week off taking care of my girls. All was going well and I even made it to their dance class this morning on time. It was there while I sat sipping my large Timmies and watching my girls run around in tap and ballet shoes that I remembered.... Crap! It's my day for the link post... and I still haven't cut the podcast.

Nobody tell Tom alright?
