****Update on the Contractor and Superhero's trip to the Waffle House. They went in, ordered breakfast and ate to the heart's content. Went to the register to pay. Started to write a check and was told-No checks. Also didn't take his Discover card. Oops! what now. I bet he was wishing he'd taken his mommy with him. He ended up leaving his driver's license while he went to his bank, cashed a check and went back and paid. So maybe, riding with those two guys to work isn't such a good idea after all. And of course, I had to call and tease him about it.*****
I want the Contractor to take me to work every morning! Why you ask would I want my son to take me to work? After all, I'm perfectly capable of driving myself anywhere I want to go--well, maybe almost anywhere.
This morning as I was coming over the railroad tracks in the right hand turn lane, I heard a horn honking. When I looked to the left there was the Contractor and Superhero both waving. I was very happy to see them and get to start my day with their smiling faces.
I decided it was also necessary to hear their voices, so(don't tell anyone)I picked up my cell phone and called them. You have a direct line to your superheros don't you? Anyway as I spoke with Superhero, I asked where they were going. The reply--'We're going to go eat breakfast'--how jealous am I? So I asked,'Where are you going to eat breakfast?' The reply--'Waffle House'
Now you understand why I want to ride with them to work each day.
I'm so thankful that my son has a profession that allows him to do this sort of thing. He doesn't punch a clock nor is anyone standing in the doorway wondering why he isn't at work yet. He is able to spend quality time with his children. That's not to say he doesn't work some long hours. He was on the jobsite until 8:30 last night trying to get as much of a roof on the house he's building as possible before it rained. But he has the ability to adjust his schedule so that he can take either or both children to their respective desinations each day when he needs to, and he can pick them up if necessary.
Who do you want to ride to work with? It does get lonesome on that commute each morning.
Have a wonderful Thursday. Love one another.
