Exploding Washing Machines, Cheeky Kids, and Homesickness

My wonderful husband stayed up late last night to do laundry! Isn't he a doll? While he was watching Stargate waiting for the washing to finish, he heard some rumblings going on in the laundry room. He goes in and the room was filled with smoke. Thankfully he was able to get the thing unplugged. Another thing to be thankful for was that was the last load that needed to be done. Soo...for a few day we shall be without a washing machine. I slept through the whole thing! Hopefully it can be fixed tomorrow or Friday! Praying for a speedy fix to this problem!

Yesterday was an interesting day at work. In the youngest preschool class I almost had my pants pulled down by three adorable children! While trying to leave the classroom, three children were hugging/holding on for dear life. Me, I was trying not to expose my underwear to the world. I looked at the teacher with a look of "Please remove these children from my pants!" I finally escaped left that classroom fully dressed. 

This was a conversation between me and a 9 year old girl in Scrapbooking Club!
Me: Ok guys time to clean up! Hey I see some scrap paper on the floor over there!

9 Year Old Girl: Yeah, I see it too! (Slight smile to see if I was going to let her get away with that comment)

Oooooo...What a sassy girl! Actually I think it was pretty funny, but you can't let the kids know that you are amused with their downright sassy-ness!

I have been pretty homesick lately! Actually that is not really accurate. I've been really missing family.  I really wish we lived closer to our families. I can't help feeling this way. I feel like we are missing out on so much of the family stuff by living here. I know that it hurts Michael when I tell him I wanna see family. I think he feels like I'm not happy with my life here and that he is not enough. I love him so much,more than I tell or show him most of time. I'm just sick of being those people in the the picture on the refrigerator door.I would love to be the Aunt who brings the kiddos for ice cream. The Aunt who takes the kids to the park. The Aunt who goes rollerskating.Thats just how I'm feeling.

Michael loves his job! I love that Michael loves his job! I really want to support him in his career. It is just so hard when your heart really wants to be someplace else.
Here are a couple of little things I made this weekend. I originally made them to print out and frame, but I think I might print them out and send as fall cards!

Have a good night everyone!

  1. I can understand the feelings of missing your family. Most of mine live out of province, so I only get to see them once a year. But just think you get to miss all the drama. Sometimes its not so bad being far away :)
    Those will make beautiful cards.
