Poor mom. . .

Poor Mom, she has had such a hard time today. . . it all started when she went to the eye doctor early this morning at 7:50 am. All of us kids said goodbye to her, and then started getting ready for the day. 10 minutes later, Mom walked back through the door laughing saying that her appointment was actually at 8:50 am! We all laughed with her, and then said goodbye again at 8:50. When she got back, her pupils were so dilated that she was as blind as a bat!
Not only was she now blind, but she had to grade 60 science tests (Mom teaches online classes for Apologia science)!
 To say the least, she had to have Caelen help her make sure that she was giving all of the kids A's instead of F's.....
Last but not least, we all had a vote on what to have for lunch, and we decided to ask mom to make her famous mac 'n' cheese!!! YEAH! Everything was going smoothly when mom accidentally forgot to screw on the salt shaker can imagine what happened next.....a whole cup of salt flew into the cheese sauce, and milk splashed out into the stove making the flame blaze up! Mom had a blank look on her face at first, but then we all saw the funny side of things and started to laugh. She fished out as much salt as she could, but when we tasted the sauce that was left, everyone downed probably a gallon of water. Then as she was washing the salty pot out, she burned the mess out of her finger. Mom said that this morning was a definite testimony to our desperate need for a vacation =)

--"this story was approved by my wonderful mother, and with lots of laughing from her offspring"--

psssssst.....the mac 'n' cheese turned out to be one of the best batches ever! (that is of course after the salty batch was dumped)
