The kids were sent downstairs to clean up their mess from the past week.
Fussing, moaning, whining, fighting…and then I hear…
“It is all mom and dad’s fault. First they had to get married, have us, adopt, have more kids and now look at this mess.”
Yes, I am sure it is all my fault. Somewhere, somehow it will always be my fault. Ha!
I was over at our new house last night checking on the painting progress and happened to meet my next door neighbor.
Small talk took place and then I dropped the bomb that we had 6 children. I wish I could have snapped a shot of her face when I said those words. It was not the look of “oh yippie this is going to be fun.” Once she gave me that look, I decided that I would let her figure out this summer that I was pregnant.
I had a good laugh when I told Carl about it when I got home.
a batch of bread – 4 loaves
I had a friend over and we made 22 freezer meals which means I now have 11 in my freezer! Fantastic! That was 15 lbs of hamburger browned, 7 boxes of noodles, 14 jars of spaghetti sauces, lbs and lbs of different kinds of cheese, 8 lbs of tater-tots, and many other things but the amount of food just made was enormous.
Plus a HUGE pot of soup to feed 4 families.
I am looking forward to doing this again!
We just spilled three bowls of cereal with milk onto the floor in a matter of 5 minutes. I don’t think we can handle cereal for afternoon snack anymore.
I think I want to scream.
Silas said, “Whoa that is a lot of mess.”
Okay change gears now we are off to swimming lessons.
