Home Alone...

I am never home alone. I am currently residing with my parents and one of them is always home. The problem with never being alone is you never get real quiet time to think . Today I had the house to my self from 9-3:30. I did not do anything crazy. I simply caught up on a lot of things that I have been meaning to finish but the house is never quiet enough.

I finished three job applications which all needed a paragraph of something written and all on different subjects but all related to education.
I ordered my nephew's birthday present.
I folded a lot of laundry.
I prepared my sunday school lesson.
I prepared my children's church lesson.
I fixed my mom's blood sugar meter. SHHH! I took my blood sugar too and was not happy with the results.
I put part of dinner in the crockpot.


Now, it is 4 PM and I need to get out of my pajamas, shower and run a few errands. I am dreading that because I know it is hot, hot , hot outside. The house inside is reading 79 and it should be 73 in here.

By the way, I did not substitute the last day of school. I had a terrible time the next to last day of school. I called the office for security. Ten minutes after my call I got the janitor to come help me. Yes, the janitor. There are three security guards and one police officer on duty all day and I got the janitor. Nope, not enough money to face these kids on the last day. Unfortunately though, I am now among the unemployed and can not collect unemployment because I was basically an independent contractor. Yes, I will pick up a couple of days at the family business but not enough. Needless to say, I am quite scared financially. Pray for me.

I'll pray for you, Becky. I think something will pop up for you. Sounds like you had a busy Saturday! I like do-nothing Saturdays, myself. lol

what did happen at school, Becky?it sounds like it was an awful experience, but I don't blame you for not going in the last day of school. looks like you did get a lot of things done when you had the house to yourself
