What Work makes you Grateful For-

I got a call today from the home care supervisor. She said "I just got payroll and did you know that you had 18 hours of overtime?" That's right- Two weeks ago I worked 62 hours between both of my jobs! I can tell you that I am worn out, and I will probably have 50 hours from last week. But, working has definately made me much more grateful for my totally, totally awesome husband and the 3 greatest kids ever. I am learning how much fun they are, and how it is most important to have quality time with them. I have come to know that even though they only see me for about 30 minutes in the morning and 2-3 hours at night- they still know who I am and still love me no matter what. And I Love them too! It's great to really enjoy spending time together! I so totally envy and miss being a stay at home mom, but hopefull that opportunity will come my way again- really soon!
We did find time last Monday night to go to the Bishop's home to help plant his enormous garden- that he will share! The pictue is of Kyler on his tractor, with only half of the garden behind him.

You're such a good mom. You make me tired just reading about all that you fit into a day! Keep up the good "work"... but get a couple hours of sleep too!

Wow what a cool bishop! Rach is right, poviding for your family is just as important as all the other stuff, and you are being an awesome mom working so hard!!! Hope they give you less hours in the future though! That's crazy!
