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.
