So much has happened or is happening, I just don't know where to begin.
I feel like I have been nothing but gone. Gone is a good thing, but not for earning a living, or keeping a garden going, or a house clean.
Back from Missoula with all the fires and smoke. It is very smokey here also.
Mom was happy to see her brother and all her smaller grand kids and great grand kids. In fact we brought two little ones home with us. My drug addict brother's son has a girl who is 11 and my mom adores her and has always wanted to bring her here. She is a sweet simple thing due to her parentage. Mom did raise the son but as she enables all men he is not the greatest but a far cry from my brother. After we decided to bring Olly home we stopped at Uncles and picked up another GGdaughter of my Aunts who is also being raised by her mother due to drugs. You would think my whole family is in the mad house, but actually we are all fairly sane and educated hard workers. Sara is 6 and bored stiff with this very sick old man and a mom that works and a great grandma that is flustered. So we added her to the mix and now we have a daycare!
Really this was to help out my Aunt and give her a break from caring for a sick husband and a young child. So thinks will be a little busy here for the next few days. That is what families are for right?
In the mean time, I have still not made the bed from when Sluggy left. I have not un packed or done any laundry. I need to earn money to pay bills. I need to get meals organized for more people. Thanks goodness for my previous weeks cooking and the garden, and the chickens.
I have a broken finger. It was a surprise. I guess I broke it when I smashed it with a rock a few weeks ago. It really hurt when I played the piano at my sister in laws, but other than that I really have not noticed it. I just don't use it. Now it is splinted and such a pain. Doctor found it during a routine xray for my arthritis. It is tender where the fracture is, but if you don't squeeze it or manipulate it (DOCTOR) it doesn't hurt.
Well I have a TON of work to do today. I love my fellow blogger that said yard work was free exercise. What a great way to look at work.
Have a a great and productive day!
