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?
