Busy busy

Scene from yesterday — it’s an oil stone. “G” of GAIN needed to sharpen knives. He wanted to use a sharpening steel that I keep in the kitchen, but I showed him the family oil stone, and he put the steel away quickly.

My grandparents came over this evening and experienced the crazy busy-ness of our household. Basically, no one sees us because we are not around. Can you relate?

Grandma and Grandpa got to witness one of Mr. GAIN’s events live — a telephone town hall (a very neat concept), then see one child off to Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat, a benefit for DMARC, which supplies area food pantries. They also got to assist another child with her “Smartie Pants” costume; watch us make the candy bowl — we had a large quantity and variety of confections, and we have about 1/3 of it left; have a plate of roast beef dinner with three of us; see a few early neighborhood trick or treaters; and watch our oldest child come home from babysitting, dress for the evening, and leave to join the DMARC benefit.

This all took place in about two hours.
