Teabag Tidbits ~ Thankgsgiving Vacation is Over
"Wherever you go, go with all your heart."
Thanksgiving vacation is over. The kids are heading back to school this morning. Yesterday, I got up to make sure my oldest daughter was out the door in time for her 7:00am shift at work.
When I met up with her in the living room, I was told "Mom! Quit being a Mom and making sure I'm up!"
However, today I stayed snuggled in bed with one of the dogs, keeping warm. I didn't hear any commotion out in the kitchen and thought it was odd.
My husband had been up and out the door at 4:00am for deer hunting (maybe next year it will be the both of us), and I had fallen back asleep.
It was nearing 7:00am, and all the lights were still out. I remembered yesterday's "Mom!" moment, so I decided to take my time and brew a pot of coffee. It's a bit chilly in the house, as we did not use the wood burner during the night.
Even after starting the coffee pot, not one of the kids stirred. Finally, I pulled a light string and mentioned the bus would be here in a half hour. All the sudden, three girls were scrambling to get dressed.
I guess they still need Mom as a back up alarm clock after all.
