So I said to Kerry as he was leaving.....I sure wish I would have enjoyed being a stay at home mom a few years ago when I had about 5 months to enjoy it. I would like that opportunity now.
So my day began.....
*Cook Hunter's dog food (we make our own....)
*Edit a book for a friend
*Send an email to a friend about a college plan for her
*Take comforters to be washed (laundry attendant wasn't there so that one did not work)
*Cook pork roast
*blah, blah, blah - there are several more things that I wanted to get done - much more than the 12 hours or so that I had to actually work)
So - our security fire alarm works.
Nephew Three called and wanted me to pick him up from workout - the office called and I needed to reboot the server for our computers. I put Hunter out, set the alarm, walked out the door - drove down the street......
Came home. Alarm is going off - Kerry is calling me - house is filled with smoke.
Item #1 - Cook Hunter's food. Now it was scrape Hunter's food off the bottom of the pan - open the house - let the smoke out. Cancel the fire department - it was just smoke.
I had started cooking Hunter's food - did not remember that - so I did not turn off the stove. When I texted Kerry and told him, he responded, Bad form.
This blog entry would be entirely too long if I shared all the things that I have started and forgotten about today (including the pork cooking on the grill - but that one I salvaged).
For today I am reminded that I am really better when I am working. Or at least that is the attitude I will have for the next 10 years or so. I am thankful that during this time of being in the hallway (blog from 4/22/13 Two Letters - One Message) - I have found a job and will have the schedule that I have found that works for me. It is not always convenient but it is what our family needs and for that -
Thankful I Am. He has provided - once again.
Always, May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:14.
