There aren't a lot of Hexum family traditions. (Maybe we were too poor to come up with anything good?) But we did have habits. Lots and lots of habits. And those habits feel like Tradition to me.
For example, my dad worked shift work at the Boise Cascade paper mill. 14 days of 28 he worked a 12-hour shift. So 14 days out of 28 he needed a lunch. It was Kasey's and my responsibility to make sure he had a good one. He liked a container of leftovers and a sandwich and so that's pretty much what he got. We made him beautiful sandwiches too, with meat and cheese and lettuce and mayo and mustard. But, man, when you finish making somebody a gorgeous sandwich? It's too impossible not to...
And so for the seven years that it was our job to make that lunch, 14 days of 28, my dad would open his lunch box to find:
Oh man if I did that to my hubby he would go crazy! To OCD about things! Great tradition (habit)!
