Well, she's been gone 5 hours
The potatoes and carrots cooked nicely but the meatloaf didn't cook, and since I couldn't persuade the guys that raw hamburger was a delicacy I sent Thomas to McDonalds for cheesebugers for us and we ate those with the potatoes and carrots.
The cheap paper plates I got seem to disintegrate in hot wet food. I told the boys it was just more fibre, so it was in fact, good for them.
I remembered that I'm on call at the hospital and still hadn't picked up the on call phone over an hour into the shift.
Micah informed me that he had to have rubber boots by tomorrow and mom said I would pick some up for him TODAY. So I did.
And the evening is just getting started.
