How foolish of me to think that once Becky got back from Hawaii, life would calm down and return to normal. Well, it did. The only drawback is that I had forgotten what “normal” was. Life would be so much easier if all my Beloved had to do was go work 8 hours on her Civil Service job and come back home. Taking care of her needs would be a snap. Even with her hair-dressing side-line for five elderly ladies (Who are life-time friends so she doesn’t charge them), on Fridays and Saturdays it would be easier to keep up with her needs. As if that wasn’t enough to keep her busy, she is also President of the Baptist Women’s Missionary Union for 50+ churches in this area. Right now she is directing a large conference in Norfolk, VA. That is why Uncle Joe was up past 3:AM printing programs and hymns, (after searching for them online), for today’s meeting. That was somewhere in the neighborhood of 25,00 pages plus replacing both toner cartridges twice. It’s not that I mind helping her. That’s what I live for. What bother’s me is the expense. We aren’t rich by any means but she acts like she thinks paper grows on trees.

Well, all that Becky does is amazing!! I suppose you need to learn how to make paper from the trees you have on your property to reduce the expense.

Paper from trees? What a novel idea @Corbin5 I'm tired of writing on parchment.

What a list of accomplishments your Becky has!!! I'm going to have to invest in a paper and toner cartridge company. Btw, you have every right to be proud of her, even though you don't get to see her often. lol

She obviously was concerned that you might be suffering from insomnia and needed something to keep you occupied in the middle of the night (either that or she's got a case of jet lag and wanted company).
