At 5:30 pm yesterday this is what my house was like:


carrots in the pressure cooker on the stove top with 18 minutes to go

Matt's birthday cherry pie in the oven with 4 minutes to go

spaghetti on the stove top boiling

ground beef on the stove top browning

jerky drying in the dehydrator, but done and still going

Emmitt crying in the high chair

Kendal doing puzzles on the kitchen floor

one of the visiting teaching supervisors trying to call me to report for the month


Kelsey running around doing everything I tell her to do


Matt's birthday presents on the table still needing to be wrapped



At 8:30 pm this is what my house was like:


girls in jammies


presents unwrapped and everyone smiling


dinner long ago digested


carrots resting


pie on the verge of disappearing


jerky already packed for the big hunt this weekend


kitchen moderately cleaned up


living room perfectly cleaned up


everyone happy and getting ready for birthday pie and bedtime







Today at 7:00 am this is what my house is like:

Quiet

Matt long gone for work

girls still asleep

Emmitt with a full tummy and back asleep

Rachel enjoying the silence of early morning and headed to the shower

Aaahhhhhh . . . .

I have to tell you that I read this as 5:30 A.M. My thought process, 'Holy cow what time did she start those carrots. . .and she made a pie too . . . Rachel is so amazing. . .why is she cooking spaghetti?. . . she's making dinner so she can just warm it up later-- that's a good idea. . . Kendal is doing puzzles-- go back to bed girly. . . why on earth would someone think it is okay to call you at 5:30 in the morning!?.' It wasn't until then that I scrolled up to the top to figure out if I read the time wrong-- sure enough 5:30 PM. That's better. You're still pretty amazing though.
