Our Little Man and Other Life Things
The FedEx guy brought a package to us a few days ago. Well, technically he didn't bring it to us. He sat in his car refusing to get out because the last time he was at our house Missy scared him by barking at him. I promised him she wouldn't hurt him, but he wasn't about to believe me! I had to go to his truck and retrieve the package. The good news is that it contained all the great benefits of Michael's new job. We got to read about our new insurance plan, retirement plan, 401k plan, and other great things. The bad news is that there was still no hire date. We have been in the nuclear field long enough to know that nothing happens without a security clearance. We also know those kind of things take time. We are just getting tired of waiting. Our checkbook is beyond tired so we are more than ready for Michael to go to work!
I am amazed that the weekend is here already. I am looking forward to it. As always, my Friday is full of cleaning. Don't tell anybody, but I am going to thaw out our supper from leftovers I made several weeks ago. I am hoping nobody will notice. This family has a freezer complex. They think they don't like food if it has been frozen and reheated. They NEVER complain unless they SEE that it came from our freezer. The trick is to NOT let them see. It works every time. I might even bake a cake so they think that there was some activity in the kitchen for the day.
grace and peace,
