Much To Do About Everything
Now that things are rolling along on the "home" front, hardly a day goes by that dosn't just evaporate as quickly as it started. And building a home with dh 1400 miles away, makes me wonder about my (in)sanity. I have to wear many hats throughout the day, including: mother, father, cook, maid, chauffeur, buying agent, general manager, banker, teacher, gardener, and referee. Whew! I get paid in slurrrpy kisses from the dog and little Nathan. No real paycheck has come my way for 23 years. I have two young ladies (daughters) both in love that I must supervise 24/7, and a son in the military that gives me worrywarts. On top of all my motherly duties, I must make decisions about 95% of the features in the new home. I left 5% for dh to choose just so he won't hold anything against me (lol). Let's see, today I must file an application for a septic tank, call the loan officer, check on a building permit, fire my first builder officially, and entertain guests ... all while wearing a smile. I wonder what surprises will get thrown in the mix!
