Wearing: my work uniform (I changed my shirt to my new MBMission shirt)
Waiting for: meatloaf to bake
Watching: most recent watch is "I Am Number Four" rating: not bad
Weary of: whining
Winning at: getting flubber out of little girl's hair
Word for the day: Colossians 3 and 4 - don't be afraid to raise the bar, God has called us to a HIGH standard
I work very casually at the Post Office in town and today was one of my days to work and today was so dead, deader than usual. Not so exciting, I like interacting with customers, even when I have to admit that I may not know what I'm doing! It was perfectly quiet all morning and I honestly missed the noise of my kids and the noisy fan that is attempting to keep it cool in here, it's not working.
I got two calls from home as the kids actually tried to keep on the schedule without me there! That is impressive. When I got home the dryer was running, Sasha was cleaning out the dishwasher and Lizzy was clearing the table. (Sam was at Grandma's for a birthday sleep-over)
The older kids....were sleeping...
Okay, they have an excuse, Abby just got home from camp last night and was a wee bit tired from all the exertion and excitement of camp. Chris came home, too, but promptly went over to a friend's house that we hooked up with at the ice cream stand on the way home.
The eldest doesn't have an excuse, he was just sleeping.
Excitement for the day:
2. Chris and Abby are home from camp.
3. We have the majority of the parts to repair the burned out combine.
4. Flubber! We made some and I earned points for being a cool mom... (and it actually worked!! sometimes our experiments are kind of a bust...very disappointing, but not this time!)
5. Harry Putty....Lizzy put the stuff in her hair...not so much fun :( but exciting nonetheless
