A Nice Nanaw Break


I've had this niggling headache all day, went back to bed this morning for an hour or so, then slept for 2 1/2 hours this afternoon. I woke up just before the school bus came rumbling into the drive to discharge Zach, MeriKate, Krysten, and Abby. I helped the two youngest with homework, Zach and Krysten are having those yearly tests this week so they didn't have any.

I guess my men folk decided they needed to give me a little break from the same ole routine cause they cooked a fine supper of fried catfish, fries, and hushpuppies. Zach also laid a very nice table, all I had to do was throw together a salad. James even pre-loaded the dishwasher with the stuff he used while cooking so it only took a minute for me to put our plates in and start the load.

I haven't even had to argue and wrestle with Zach to get him to take a bath and brush his teeth!

What a wonderful evening I've had so far!

That sounded like a good evening to me also. A break from the routine is most often good - unless the break is bones while getting run over by a truck. :) ec

Good for you and for your family for picking up the slack so you could get a little reprieve.
