All in a Day's Work

Today, I had to work at my dad's office from 9 a.m. to 4:30... let me tell you, I am so glad that I don't work all day, every day in an office! It would drive me crazy! I loved teaching school all day, but sitting behind a desk is not fun! However, I did get the chance to talk to this really sweet old man. His wife died a long time ago, and he knows how long it has been to the day (9 years, 8 days). He talked to me about how they were high school sweethearts, how he was in World War II, and various other things. It was really neat; you could see it in his eyes how much he loved his wife and misses her still.

David's aunt and uncle are a couple hours away on vacation, so we met them for dinner, along with David's granddad, for dinner. It was nice to be able to visit them for a while. I have been fortunate... my mom's family (and my dad's) all live in the same town (with the exception of one aunt). We see each other at church, eat dinner with each other, etc. I take that for granted.

On our way down to meet David's family, we had a good time chatting (as always) in the car... as I have said, I love our "car time" chats (reminds me of "fireside chats"). We were looking forward to having more on the way home, but we ended up talking on the phone with his family the whole time. That's okay, though... we don't get to speak with them that often.

I am trying to come up with something funny or profound (yeah right), but I am very tired and kind of on the fried (brain) side. I also feel like I am coming down with a bug... grrr... I need sleep and vitamin C.

Check out the photos from our evening in the post below...

Tell me about it! I work at a contractors office from 8-5 everyday...all day. My other job is taking care of Troy, which right now is full time do to his back injury. I pray the Lord heals him quickly. I look forward to the days when I can stay home and work around the house. I often feel i let my husband down when i come home from a long day at work and there is no supper for him or the laundry is not all done. Saturdays are my catch up days. God has given me a wonderful husband who understands. He is so good to me.

I got your comment on my blog--that's funny about switching the words. My dad actually switches words to be funny, but I'm not trying to be funny-ha when I do it!
Oh, how did you do your blog in three columns?
