Ai-yi-yi! So Roger went to Bible study alone this evening. He looked so free and easy, walking to church alone at 6:30 – in short sleeves – with no responsibilities. No church bus to drive… He wasn’t in charge of the lesson…

Since Bible study lasts about an hour, I figured it was safe to lay down for a nap at 7:30. The kids were all watching Wallace and Gromit, and I figured that if I slept hard, he would be home about the time the movie was done, and he could start them to bed or wake me up or whatever.

I woke up at 9:40 – with all the kids wide awake and having hot chocolate and snacks – about 5 minutes before Roger walked merrily in the front door. (He brought me a cup of ice from the new ice machine. I woke up “dying” of thirst and a headache. The ice was a welcome gift – and nicer and smaller than the old ice machine.)

Did I mention that their bedtime is 8:30? And that Avery is sick today and should probably have gone to bed even earlier?

Wife of one, mother of four, friend of many. Lover of details, color, good conversations, finding balance, and being honest. Passionate lover of a well-crafted sentence - even more so if it's witty. Weird blend of cynical optimist. I'm the worst kind of woman. I'm high maintenance, but I think I'm low maintenance. Somehow, people still love me. Must be grace.
