The Gainfully Unemployed Husband Edition.
I am writing of Bret's successes this week because I have been lax in just about everything other than meal-planning and cooking. I have not gotten anywhere with my Lenten cleaning, I forgot to make Una a hair appointment, my mending is piling up and I still haven't found a knitting project I want to pick up (my yarn supply is so uninspiring and I can't really justify spending money on yarn right now). I also still haven't tackled my curriculum list for the coming year, but I will be purchasing most of my materials at a conference next month. So I thought that this week I would blow Bret's horn instead! This week he has:
1. just about completed papering, trimming and painting the hall in our house;
2. taken Naomi, the heifer, down to a neighbor's every day to clean out her infected wound and
3. helped me out by washing dishes after dinner just about every night this week.
All this on top of milking the cow, feeding all the animals and running various errands. I really love having him around. Some odd jobs have come his way, and we are hoping that it is enough to tide us over. Our expenses are not great and we can get by on relatively little, but we do need something! I think St. Joseph and St. Anthony have been doing a wonderful job of drumming up work. Thanks be to God!
