Who dun it?!

I don't remember how I used to do it, working 40 hours a week [in 4 days, mind you].  Oh wait, I remember.  I was miserable, cranky, and never had any fun.  Last week, on Monday actually, was the anniversary of the day I was fired from the job I used to have.  I had forgotten about it but something brought it to mind so I thought I should commemorate it by living my life

I am so much more busy [happier, nicer, etc] now than I ever was when I worked outside the home!  I'm sure some of you can identify.  The last 4 days have been crazy.  Our weekends are nuts because of church things, for sure.  Then all the little things of the work week sometimes make me feel like I should be getting paid!  But I am getting "paid", even if it isn't a paycheck.  At least I don't have to pay taxes on that!

I have so many great tutorials and recipes to share, but I just don't feel like thinking today.  I feel like letting my fingers fly across the keyboard and post random things.  For instance, today I helped host a murder mystery breakfast.  Bet you've never done that before!  I was a little apprehensive, particularly about waking up at 6:30 [I'm a stay at home wife, not mom].   It was a lot of fun, really.  We had it at this mansion down from where we live called Clay Hill.  I wish I had taken photos but I was too busy pretending to be a Roman floosie and serving scones.  Here are some photos of the other characters.


  1. you cracked me up with the "i'm a stay at home wife, not mom" comment! the breakfast sounded fun. we've done a dinner with our SS class and i really enjoyed it. i can totally relate to your post. i know it was hard but being fired was probably the best thing that could have happened to you and your health at that time!
