Peace


Jessie's been at 4-H sewing camp for the last 3 days so both kids have been at a friends house (one one hand, it's great having friends for both kids that are the same age as Jessie and Tyler and are also brother and sister....on the other hand - you get 4 kids at the same time). I would drop them off at 7:30 a.m. - go to work until 2, go get Jessie and her friend at 4 at camp, swing by and pick up Tyler and drop off Blair, and rush home to dinner.


So my trusty babysitter has not been here until today. I went and picked Tyler up at 10 (both kids spent the night at a friends' house last night) and picked up the babysitter and her brother who came to play with Tyler for the day.


Somehow, when I walked in the door at 5:00, it seemed much better when she had been here for the day and vacuumed my house, dusted, cleaned the kitchen and folded the 8 loads of laundry for me.


I think I'm getting spoiled:)


Now I'm off to go sit on my swing and enjoy the breeze. Oh....she cooked dinner for us too for tonight..........

I am glad to know that you finally stopped long enough to enjoy yourself. You stay busy all the time doing for others. Nice to know you got pampered a little too.

Holy smokes, Kris! Your caregiver sounds AMAZING! How absolutely wonderful. Indulge yourself while she is with you. I know she feels comfortable in your home, with you and your family, otherwise, she wouldn't "belong" so well. FUN!

Peace out!

So jealous! I want to go to a week long sewing camp! And how lucky are you to enjoy the porch swing and not worry about all the things you need to get done!

It sounds like a wonderful thing to come home and find! You have been so busy that you deserve time to kick back on your swing.:)

Janice said...

Wow, what a great surprise to have all that done for you today. Sounds really nice.
I remember doing 4-H when I was younger. I really should find a
4H group here or start one.
I hope you enjoy your night. Happy relaxing!!

First I just had to laugh because your description of drop-off/pick-up mania sounded all too familiar. My husband can't ever keep track when I'm explaining the round trips with the friends and the play dates and the lessons and somehow I've never left anyone behind yet!

Second I am so happy for your peaceful evening. Not even a tiny bit jealous because YOU DESERVE it and it restores my faith in babysitters :)!

Granny Lyn said...

Boy oh Boy, you trained that babysitter right!!! better not let the neighbors know how good she is, they might up the ante for her...

marit said...

LOL- I know ALL about the cabdriving business of kids...
So glad you have a reliable babysitter! Enjoy being spoiled:-)

Valerie said...
