What a Saturday

Our septic gave up on us, around Friday morning. Since we are having a very warm day, the snow around our house are melting. Our septic somehow, getting all the meting snow and got filled us so fast. We found out Saturday, when they pump it out, that our outlet was fitted with smaller pipe. Maybe the fitting broke or the people who put the septic did not care that the whole in the septic was 2 inches wide and they put a 2 inch pipe going out. So, the 2 inches difference is where all the water from melting snow coming from.

We had and appointment to go to around 12 noon Saturday. And since we can't use any water inside the house on scare of overflowing the septic. We had to wait until they take it away before filling it up again.

Then, we had a pest problem in the kitchen too. We got the pest taking care of, but I needed to make some dish for this appointment. I can't clean the counter top because of our septic. I almost gave up, but DH got mad saying that everyone knew that his whole family is coming. To make the story short, I was running around like a chicken with no head to get everything and all the children ready.

No breakfast and lunch for us either. We did not eat until 6:30pm. I was famished and so was our children. I did not have enough energy to cut the brisket I cooked for this gathering. I let my children eat before we said grace. I'm sorry, but when everyone was running around looking for some food, or smoking cigarette outside, I can't let my children starve waiting for them. Sure, if I am not hungry I will be all over too before eating and finally sit down when everyone got their food. I hated that whole day. The only good thing came out of it, is we are all together and I learn a lot about the word of Yahweh.

All because DH refuses to terminate the stupid pest a day before. He even refuses to kill an ant. I should put him inside a tank with plenty of mosquitoes, let's see what he will do. I am still recuperating from stress. I am glad today is holiday.

My mind was preoccupied with not so nice idea lately about a friend of mine that I wrote about way back. How did DH and I get into their lives?

James 4:4 You adulterers and adulteresses, know you not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

DH friend don't have much to worry about, because this couple choose not to have children. And his wife forgive him about anything. My friend is separated from her husband because of his adulterous act. Now she found her long time grade school crush, and right away both confessed to their feeling. She was at awe thinking that he feels the same way. Yes, my readers, she is on cloud nine.

However, there is two problem. This is where I came in. Yes, the kill joy of all happiness, right? He is married with three children...young children that is. I don't care how nasty his wife is, why did he marry her and have three children with her? My friend said, "I don't know, he said he will take care of everything." I'm not the one cheating, she added. But she is reciprocating his feeling.

How can someone justify her logic with the whole situation? This is the very reason why I don't have a best friend. Once their way of thinking crosses mine, I'm done with them. Am I very hard to please? Wow! Are we running out of man in this world? When the man say the magic word (I Love You), nothing can be done to separate the woman from them? Do I need to keep associating myself with this people? Am I put in their lives to stop it? Do I tell the wife what is going on, and be the middle of all the chaos? Well, I don't know the wife, but I know she have a social network and I can easily message her.

Do I shut up and do nothing? All this questions, and I don't know which way to go. I already told my friend that if she don't pick the right path, that's it for our friendship. Is it mean that the devil wins? I did stop talking to her for a while now, because I am thinking all about the questions I wrote above. Ugh, this is very annoying. The winning side of me is telling me, let them be. However, is that what the Creator wants?

Holiday Ride

Thanks for the post, Vernon Lowe

The season of joy and happiness is upon us! In my family that means packing all fifty of us into my aunt's house for tons of food and presents. No trip to my aunt's house is without controversy. Usually it spawns from the fact that everyone in my immediate family thinks they know the correct and only way to get to my aunt's house. As we leave our house and set the home security system from the debate begins. My father is loyal to the freeway while my mother clings to the streets and of course I am in the middle thinking a combination of the two is the best route.

Piling into car everyone is happy and we are on our way. Before we hit the end of the street my mother points out a mistake my father has made, "taking the long way to the freeway." The detour literally adds a minute but who cares we need something to argue about. Once on the freeway tempers have cooled, only to be aroused by a missed exit ramp. I am first to notice us fly by the ramp, prompting me to blurt out "Hey, you know you missed the exit?" This perpetuates into a full blown argument resulting in threats to be left at home next year.

We finally make it to my aunt's house and everyone is happy go lucky again and the holiday cheer is restored until the drive home.

Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities (any mother care to disagree?), and I often work 14 hours a day (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers, and the rewards are more of a satisfaction than just money."
