March 3, 2008 - Monday Why Do I Even Try? Current mood: Not so helpful Category: Not so helpful Romance and Relationships It was Saturday night, and my wonderful husband was cooking. All of a sudden he spilled the flour container on the floor. (Okay, I distracted him by talking) Trying to be helpful I got the vacuum and cleaned it up...or at least that was what I thought. I turned around and noticed some flour behind me on the floor. I honestly , at that moment, thought he spilled more. Well as it so happened, there wasn't a bag in the vaccuum and it blew out the back.!!! Everything had a thin coat of flour--cabinets, trash cans, refrigerator, and the floor. It even went all the way into the diningroom. He insisted on cleaning everything himself. It would have been so much easier and effective to just let him clean it up in the first place. but I wanted to help! 12:36 PM - 1 Comments - 2 Kudos - Add Comment - Edit - Remove
I am blessed to live in San Diego. People come here for a vacation and I get live here all year long. I taught 2nd grade for 43years and retired in 2013.I still volunteer in a 2nd grade at my school every Thursday. I have two grown daughters that are a very important part of my life. I am married a wonderfully patient man with two daughters a son and two granddauhters, and we live with two very entertaining cats. While I enjoy champagne at a wedding or special occasion , I do not need alcohol to have fun and it is never an option if I am upset. I truly can find joy in simple pleasures. I do not drink coffee, I am so blessed to take care of my youngest granddaughter once a week. She calls me Gamma and Bill is Popi. Hearing her say her names for us brings such joy to my heart.
