|(not actually our dirty clothes as I don't think it is appropriate to air out our dirty laundry)|
There's nothing like your 'home conbenchion'. You know the majority of the people there. Most all of the people you know and love are all in one place enjoying the same things you do. Some friends are there you see very often. Some friends are there that you see only about once/year - yet it is like not one day has passed since the last time you saw them. I like that.
There were many, many, many young people, not just our own MYP. As I age, that becomes more wonderful. Looking at the future.
I had my same job. There's lots of business to attend. And I chose those words with reason. Seventeen toilets. Six showers. Umpteen sinks. I had a very willing partner. And also our youngest and her little friend. Did you know the cleaner you keep a place, the more people try to keep it clean? With about 400+ females plus some little boys using the facility, it is challenging to keep it clean and smelling like a wildflower garden, but we almost did!
Our MYP bailed on us for most the nights and so the Chairman and I would retreat to our camper utterly alone. Hello? Hello? Hello? It was a bit strange actually. But since I still like my Chairman an awful lot, it was nice to visit without distraction.
I met a few blog readers that I hadn't known before. Hello to you! I honestly feel so silly when someone comes up to say that they read the "Chairman and company". My first response is usually, 'why?'.
We came home to a broken toilet. This morning, our high schooler missed the bus. The next one forgot his picture form that was due today. The last one was in a complete melt-down because one math assignment wasn't completed and she was going to 'get yelled at'. There's a missing cell phone. Ahhh yes. The realities of life slapping you in the face as you walk in the door.
But I'm glad I love home too. We can bring those quiet, restful places back to our own nest. I think in the busy-ness of life it is so important to have an oasis for the family.
Each and every time I sit down long enough to form a lap, I see this:
So off to my first physical therapy appointment for my shoulder that has given me fits for seven months now. I hope she isn't too mean to me.
Happy Monday! Mused out for now....
