A Jack of all Trades

I often have commented that Hopson (daddy Hopson), is a CPA who likes to pretend he's an:  attorney, electrician, plumber, farmer (he does this one quite well), yard boy, and bug man, just to name a few.  It is really impressive, I think the man can do and fix almost anything!  He's also very smart.  I've finally learned, after almost 18 years of marriage, how to verbally spar with him.  It's no easy task.  He's the calming force and logical thinker when I'm about to blow my lid.  (it's usually dealing with a child(ren), surprise...)  He'll talk me down and we'll logically talk it out.  My children should thank him on a daily basis for keeping them from not getting a beating or two.  (I don't really beat my children, but a few whacks with a wooden spoon, aka Mr. Do Right [thank you Cathy DeBard] have done wonders for my kids.)

My job is mommy.  That really means:  taxi, short order cook, nurse, rule enforcer, school homework monitor, fight referee, laundress, maid, pet caregiver, etc.  My main job this summer has been taxi & short order cook in that order.

The cooking part has been interesting.  Usually during the summer my children eat their weight in tuna and mac & cheese.  It was a staple of mine growing up & my kids have been addicted to it since they were old enough to eat solid food.  This summer has been the year of homemade pizzas.  I think I've finally nailed how to make a pretty good homemade pizza.  If I'm really feeling daring I'll even toss the dough in the air.  Of course everyone has to have a try & it usually gets dropped a time or two, but hey, it's fun. 

Today I made one cheese pizza and one 1/2 turkey pepperoni & 1/2 turkey pepperoni, onion & tomato.  So YUMMY and easy, just a little time consuming.  Needless to say, there was zero left.  I'm sure they'll ask for it again's a good thing I have the car gassed up & ready to go.  :)

Y'all be blessed beyond measure,
