As he left this morning he said, "I'm going to make a lot of money today." To which I countered, "I'm going to clean the kitchen really really well..." I almost laughed as I said it. It sounded so pathetic! And so today, I have baked 5 loaves of bread, made about 100 corn tortillas, and 32 flour tortillas, washed 8 loads of laundry...and folded every stitch of it, searched for books on tape on-line at my local library, fed and watered our hens, and watered our garden, which is germinating nicely (by the way), plus a few other odds and ends. I have a bunch more on my to-do list, but really, it's endless. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm supposed to be doing here at home. I spent a few days last week going through lots of drawers and cupboards straightening and getting rid of things we don't need.

I'm still wondering what I'm passionate about. Everyday brings new ideas and new things to do. I like being a stay at home mom.

Football on Saturday was fun! Andrew made a touch down after stealing the ball from a player on the other team. He said he was tired of waiting for his coach to call a play where he scored, so he thought he'd just make it happen. Then, the next play he sacked the quarter back and caused him to fumble, and the Raiders (that's Andrew & Ryon's team) picked up the fumble. Ry has had 4 more tackles this season than Andrew had all last football season, he's doing great also! And Eli is doing great. He plays on the 0-line and has to hold back really big "kids"...they look like men to me!

I took my camera on Saturday, but ended up being the water mom for the team instead of taking I still don't have any photos of Eli from football this year.

Jeanette, when you are looking for your passion, have you thought about writing a book? Your blog is so colorful and you have such a full life, I bet you could write so many books! Anyway, I hope you find your passion. I have so many things I am passionate about, I struggle to decide which is the best to invest my time and energy into.
