a mom in the middle of no-where!

To-day's world is amazing--
We live in the bush, in the middle of no-where- sorta!

After Himself burnt the microwave, and after 2 smoke/ carbon detectors quit on us, and after searching in our small town , for replacements, with no luck--our daughter in Ohio told us that she ordered her "detectors" from a big box store, online---- I shall call this store "H.D."---

I went online- found the same ones , a tad pricier-in Canada-- put in the store closest to us (Sudbury)- and ----- this morning, while walking Tess, there they were, hanging on our gate, in a plastic bag to protect the box from the rain.
It is like a miracle----no driving 3 hrs to that store--It seems like God in Heaven placed them on our property---

I took a meal to Son#3, the Policeman's family last evening-
All the time I was cooking it--laying it out on a tray, I was complaining to Himself--
"I really hate doing this"--and "Why am I doing this ?" and-"I never get a thank-yu"--and it went on and on--
Of course Himself couldn't hear me , as his ears were "resting" as he says--
Into town I drove, and carried the food--a lot of it--- into their present home--
The 2 girls dug in right away-kept telling me they were hungry--There were boxes everywhere-and trucks and trailers ready to move the furniture across the street to their new larger home-
As I drove away, I was SO happy that I had done their supper-- There was no way they could've cooked in the chaos they were in--
And, Lord love a Duck, son #3 even called to thank me, about 10pm-
I guess a Mom just has to carry on, no matter what sorta treatment their kids put her thru- because---- she is "the Mom"-
