Can I vent for just one post? I promise it will only be this one time - I don't like being whiny - but in this case I just need to for a short time.
I want to run off to this calm and quiet lake near where we were camping last month!!
Or be in Hawaii watching the sunrise!!!
Yesterday my sweet Hubby shared with me the news that his new job with a small pathology group is going away!! He's been there four months and just loves the job, but sadly quite out of the blue the doctors who own the company decided to sell it and so shortly Hubby will be out of work. I will admit to doing a bit of whining to God (okay, more than a bit). Doesn't He know there is a recession going on? Doesn't He know there are 8 children to feed in this home? I hope to come to the place of peace soon but I am confessing to not being there yet.
The day wasn't quite done yet though - after hearing that lovely bit of news I then discovered the plague that had stealthily entered my home - oh the horror!!! I learned that the itchy scalp that my daughters had been complaining about was NOT the allergy to the new shampoo as I thought (they and I are very prone to skin allergies and itching is just a part of our life). That itch was from something far worse - you guessed it!! Oh dear - I can hardly say it - gasp - LICE!!! There - I said it. Five kids and myself have them. Sigh - whoever heard of a 40 something lady having lice? I thought it was something for 7 year olds. I feel like crying like a kid though. Well okay - since I've confessed already - I have cried like a kid today (and eaten far more Mint Milanos than anyone should!!)
There - I've shared my terrible, no good, very bad day. I've got to go back to the laundry (and there is GOBS) and to the combing. And to the comforting of my husband. Sigh.
I will go back to writing about my canning and other things. I'm done whining. I think.
