The Best House In The World

 We didn't have school today because of a teacher work day.
So, Gigs flew his drone around the house, including in Claire's room 
to bug her while she had a little nap before her 12-hour shift at the hospital.
She was thrilled.

Later, Lottie and I sat on the couch and laughed at stuff,
watched a few Mr. Beast videos on my phone, and then we finally got
 ourselves up and drove to the store, where she 
talked me into buying her ANOTHER Squishmallow stuffed animal thing.
She's still so obsessed with those things.

On the way home, she said to me,
"Mom, I love you so much.  I have the best life!
I have a Mom and Dad who love me so much,
we live in this cool place,
we have money to buy groceries, and I'm happy."
I thought my heart would burst.
We've been super conservative with our activities lately
while we pray that BovIQ/work sees better days.

So our days off of school usually look like hanging around the house,
working in the yard, watching movies upstairs, family walks around the farm,
epic wiffle ball games, car drives, and motorcycle rides around Stillestead.
As I went to bed tonight, there were 12 dollar bills
laying on my pillow with a sticky note and a drawing 
of her newest Squishmallow with a bubble chat 
coming out above her head saying:
"This is money for buying me and bringing
 me home to the best house in the world."
