Keeping My Day Job
April 23, 2013
I have to confess I have the best job. I get to be a stay at home mom to my favorite teenager in the whole wide world. I get to spend time making our house a home for her and for my very favorite person in the whole wide world, my husband.
There are days that are filled with routine chores and errands. Those are the days I make my rounds. You know, rotate the laundry, groceries in, garbage out, pick up stuff from one place and deliver it to another.
Then there are days like yesterday. Favorite teen and Ms. Chucklehead, our 3-year-old Borador, were both feeling sick. Being able to tuck teen back into bed to sleep and checking on a lethargic puppygirl became my highest priority. Today both are back on their feet and running circles around everyone.
I am blessed to have all of my needs and an abundance of my wants met. My hard-working husband is able to provide for our family at a job he loves and is very good at.
My tomatoes and strawberries and corn and beans and lettuces and carrots and onions are all growing and promising good things to come. The new fruit trees in front of my craft cottage had little blossoms on them already.
My roses are blooming. Two need to be replaced but the other 22 are healthy.
I have some really good friends who know me well and love me just as I am.
I share this life with the best man I have ever known.
Yep. I’m keeping my day job.
