Spring Cookie Day
I thought Sunday was going to be an easy day. Or sort of easy. We have church at 8:30 and it gets out at 10:00. We need to leave by 8:05 to be on time for check in. When we get home we have a lunch and this Sunday we thought we'd work outside. We have an early dinner and I take Chrissy to Youth Group and stay in town until she's ready to come home. Nothing works out.
At 7:00 am we notice steam pouring out of the wood boiler. This means that the boiler is too hot and the boiler is releasing steam to cool itself down. (I'm not sure why it does this maybe so it won't blow up or wreck all of the pipes and motor it is connected to.")
Anyway, its not good. (This happens rarely) What we have to do is use hot water to bring the temperature down. So I put three kids in two showers and told them to have at it, they could stay in as long as they want. Or until we yell for them to get out. I ran the dishwasher and washed a load of whites in hot water. Plus I took a shower. The darn thing was still running hot. AGH!
Dave gets it under control and I take the girls to church and he's going to shower and bring Dane with him. The girls and I were twenty minutes late for church and Dave and Dane were thirty five minutes late. (Our service runs at least ninety minutes)
Then on the way home Chrissy tells me that the boys are doing something different than the girls are at youth group and they are getting all kinds of munchies for free and so to counter that, she wants to make cupcakes. One hundred of them all decorated for spring. Oh, and she wants to bake them. I won't bore you with the rest of the afternoon I'm sure you all know that she got bored after the first batch and I got to do the rest. We made it to youth group by 5:30 and hung out in town until 8:00 and then slugged our way home and fell into bed.
What happened to Sunday being a day of rest?
