I'm Leaving, Not on a Jet Plane... our second home we go today! I missed out on our annual December trip to the RMH due to Little Man being too sick. The DiSH went, and as soon as we could, I scheduled another weekend. And it is now upon us! From what I hear, both nights (Friday/Saturday) they have guest chef's planned, so we won't have to do any cooking. The House tries hard to get people in to prepare the supper meal each evening for the house guests. The other meals, they are on their own. All food in the refrigerators and and in the cupboards is free for the taking, so you never have to worry about what you will eat. I remember as a house guest, realizing what a great relief that was. The staff have also booked extra volunteers to come in for cleaning this weekend that mean's even less for the DiSH and I to do! We are in charge of answering phones, checking people in and out, and just being in charge over all. It really isn't hard at all! In the process, I get to know great people, hear their stories and be an ear and shoulder for people going through tough times with their children. It's Valentine's weekend as well, so I'm sure there will be extra special treats for the guests, and if not, Girly Girl and I will probably check out the pantry, find a cake mix and make pink cupcakes! GG really shines when we go to the RMH. She absolutely loves making the beds, vacuuming, loading the dishwashers, even scrubbing toilets! In the afternoon on Saturday, the extra volunteers that come in take over for a couple of hours to give us a break. Like we need one! So we usually leave the House for a bit, hitting the park, taking a stroll, or just take a nap upstairs in the weekend shift manager's suite. I want to try and get creative with my camera this weekend, in and out of the House, and I'll post them for you to see! But right now, Little Man and Girly Girl and I are off to Walmart to buy a Valentine's Day card for Daddy. I have one more picture to share with just cracked me up, I had to share! I think I should make one of these for Mr. Smarty Pants for when he goes skiing!! haa!!
Cool, huh?!!
