Real life blows in

I want to tell you all about getting home from the trip but real life jumped into the middle of thing and nearly blew us away! We lost several trees and had a bit of damage to the house and no power for a time. My school was closed yesterday and today because of some damage and loss of power. It has been hectic but it was also wonderful to be with Tom on the first few day of his not working.

Believe it or not after all my whining and complaining about Tom working I am going to work tomorrow and leaving him home!! I really can’t believe it myself. This was one decision that Tom left entirely up to me. He said he really wanted me home with him but that he thought the school had been good for me. I was planning to work just a few days a week but the teachers want me as much as I am willing to come so we shall see. I have never felt needed before, not by anyone other that Tom. It is a nice feeling. The teachers seem to think I am really helping and the children are so sweet to me.

Tom is driving me to school tomorrow. When he picks me up we have a special errand to run! I will be sure to tell you all about it!

Cassie dear girl, why be surprised, you are a lovely person and children are quick to pick up on that.
Isn't it great to feel needed.
Warm hugs,
Paul.

I'm GLAD you decided to go to school... feeling needed, and not just by our spouse, is a wonderful thing and adds so much to our sense of self!

Huge hugs... am worried now about the house... are you sure that you are both OK?

Love you ever so much!

Cassie,
I know they love you at school, kids and teachers alike! Go when you can. I don't think you will ignore Tom!

I hope the damage wasn't too bad.

So is Eva right??

Hugs,

I'm with Eva! I bet you're headed to Walmart!!! :-) I can't wait to hear about it! I'm so happy you are still going to do stuff at the school. I think they need you and it is wonderful for you too! What a great idea Tom had in sending you there to keep you busy. He is such a wonderful man!

Paul,
It is so strange. I have never had a job in my life. This has been such an interesting experience for me.

Tig,
You and Tom were both right. The school was a god-send this winter. You know that!

Eva,
Don't you think I have been to Wal-Mart enough lately??

PK,
You are right about that I will not be ignoring my Tom. We are fine and the house will be fine soon.

Thereas,
I am at school all day and with Tom every other minute I can get. My writing time is in short supply however, I am becoming a faster typiest!

Carye,
You, Eva and PK have Wal-Mart on the brain! LOL But I agree Tom IS wonderful man!
