I love going away to teach.
I love being able to see old and new friends.
It is great to meet new people and make new friends.
But I have to admit that on that third day I am ready to come home.
By Sunday I am spent and ready to see my kids.
I landed this morning at 7.55 and my youngest son wanted to come to the airport to pick me up.
It was wonderful to see him. He is getting so big. It cracks me up to come home and see them in a new light.
I am amazed at what a difference three days can make.
So tomorrow, I hit the ground running being a mama. I need to purchase a new washer.
Oh, I forgot to tell you this story.
I called Sears last week to come out and see why my washer was not running the rinse cycle.
At first I thought that there was a sock stuck in the pump.
I make the appointment for Monday. It of course is an all day appointment. They do not give you a specific time it is anytime between 8.30 am and 5.00pm.
Well Monday comes, kids are off to school, Eji is out the door early. I am home waiting for the Sears repair man.
At 8.15 the phone rings and I am the first appointment of the day! Woo-Hoo it is going to be a great day...
Apparently Paul got the call. Paul is 6.7 and at least 400 lbs.
He comes into my basement sees my small laundry room and says that he cannot work on it because he is too big to fit in the room.
I say to him well if you move the dryer you will fit.
He looks at me and says, "I would have to move the dryer and the washer to fit in that room."
Yes, he refused. I actually had to call Sears and tell them that he refused to fix it because he was too big.
Do you know that the supervisor said "I will send another technician out on Wednesday."
I have never been so livid.
So this is how I wound up in the laundromat with 9 loads of laundry.
Well, Dave came out and told me that the actual bucket is broken and it will cost 700.00 to fix.
I politely kick Dave out of my house and decided that I will be buying a new washer tomorrow.
Oppss, sorry I digressed...
Where was I... Yeah being a mama.
I missed the kids and they missed me. Oh I know that this may not last forever, but for now it really is a nice place to be.
until we meet again,
