Well, since that's clearly not an option, I'll take a Sabbath Day instead. ;D
Ahhh, I feel like a weight is off my shoulders tonight! After all the family chores (and by "family" I mean "the boys and me") this week, I had work today that only I can do: the dreaded Balancing of the Checkbook, and Gathering of the Tax Documents and Information. Talk about depressing! And stressful! And - oh! - to make balancing the checkbook and paying bills just that much more Fun and Exciting, guess what happened? The really big check (from a client) that Kerry has been waiting for finally came, and...
... it wasn't signed.
If my hair is standing on end, just smile and back away slowly. *sigh* But it's done. The accountant came by today and picked it all up. Hallelujah and Amen.
Wyatt and Tate had a SAREX today (Search and Rescue training) with their CAP group. To make it realistic, they had to report to the Guard building at 5am. (Guess who got to drive them?) That way they could be on site (somewhere in the hills) and searching as soon as it was daylight. They were scheduled to be out until after midnight (again, realism) but the higher-ups called it early, due to weather (wet and windy). Hey. It's a scenario. The K-9 team "found" the three lost hunters they were trailing. At least that's what the boys told me. I'm just a clucky mother hen - glad to have all my little chicks back under my roof and asleep in their beds :D
But OH MY WORD. When they got home they wanted to tell me all about it. In my office, where I was hunting for a recipe. And GOOD GOLLY MISS MOLLY they have discovered a whole new smell. And it is not a good smell. Teenage-boy-hiking-through-wet-forest-all-day-in-sweaty-clothes-and-damp-boots smell. Thank you very much for the recap and the funny stories about the trees and the cliff and the muffin, and now go take showers immediately. Because I am your mother and I love you with an undying love, but that smell might just kill me.
And with that, goodnight.
