We Did It....

Michael and Jared rode bikes home today. They enjoyed the exercise and I enjoyed not having to wait around base until it was time for them to come home! Today was a full day....PWOC Bible studies, a vote for the new local board, and then a retreat team meeting after the study. All good - Semper Gumby!


I spent several hours trying to get a PERSON to talk too about my airline tickets for next week. We've decided I will not be flying to TX for PWOCI Train the Trainers. The situation in Japan is still far to fluid for me to take the chance of being out of the country when I need to be HERE....and I don't want to take the chance of not being able to get back home again once out of the country. Honestly, I'd thought the reactors would be under control or not...and I'd either be evacuated or have 100% confidence that there was no impending evacuation. We just can't tell.  So....I keep trying to reach a person from the online office where I booked my tickets....I have a bad feeling about this. 


Rather late in the day we gave the pressure cooker a try. I wanted Michael home for my first attempt. He had a great time playing nuclear scientist and letting pressure release etc as it cooled down. 



We made a roast...let it warm while I made garlic mashed potatoes in FIVE minutes. I think I'm going to like this little pot. Shoot, I can do squash in 10 min - that's faster than the microwave and no extra radiation. I like it. 

Someone snapped this photo at some point this evening......not much to report...we continue to discuss local news and world news...we continue to wonder what our spring and summer will look like...and we continue that Someone far bigger than us has a plan. 


I have a plan tomorrow to support our local economy....guess what it may be?

Love the candid pic of you and Mike. What a blessing you are to each other, and to your children. :)

Oh, I'm so glad the first attempt was a good experience! Makes conserving energy not so bad, right?!

Conserving energy is going to save us bucket loads of money. I'm adjusting to this concept quite well. LOL

Deja the cooker is a gem. I can't wait to use it some more.

LOL Kristine, thanks.

how frustrating that you can't get through to the airlines. Did you book the flight through the ticketing office on post? Maybe they have a good number for the airline?
