One 12 hour shift down, one to go! Too bad there's HIPAA and all that confidentiality stuff or I'd have some interesting stories about work today!
My hubby was at home all day with the kids. I called him on my way home just to visit and I ask the question, "What did you do today?". (There really was no expectation intended...I was asking what he and the kids did today). He starts telling me that he folded the rest of the towels, put them away. He also did one load of laundry, unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher. After that he cooked one pound of ground chuck and put it in the fridge. So, I'm thinking to myself "Wow! This is sweet!". When I walk in the house there are dirty dishes all over the kitchen counter. Two towels were laid in the middle of the living room floor where he let the kids have a "picnic" and watch I-Carley during dinner, and the towels were put away...but plenty of other stuff was all over the place. The other five pounds of hamburger still needed to be cooked.
I know that he did more today then a lot of men do and what I didn't write in the first paragraph is the rest of the day he played with the kids. He's a wonderful daddy in that he always makes times for our two little ones. It is not uncommon to see him playing Transformers, Star Wars, or with Legos. I've seen him play Barbies and I've watched him get his fingernails painted after having makeup put on his face.
I wrote in a previous post that he was out of town this last week. Jared and Joy were missing their daddy soooo much. Jared wrote a letter welcoming his daddy home. It's just too darn sweet and I have to share it! He is really a fantastic daddy...as this little note shows!
I also wanted to share something I do which has been so helpful when cooking and made things so much faster! I was talking about six pounds of ground meat earlier. I buy it in bulk, cut up an onion and then cook it all in a skillet. I buy quart size freezer bags as well as gallon size freezer bags. I divide the cooked meat in approximately one pound portions and put them in the quart size bags. I then place all of them in a gallon size bag and place them in the freezer. When I want to make spaghetti, chili, or any dish that takes cooked hamburger it's ready to go! Saves time and it's easy!
