My New Job-Working at a Prison

Ok, so I am not going to really work at a prison, but I want to. :) Thompson, IL not far from Galena is getting all the terrorist prisoners. After having my mom and dad here for 4 days I would be willing to work there if we were closer to Nana and Papa! I miss you guys already! Not sure how my co-worker felt this morning when I got in the car to carpool to work and I was crying! :) I know she understands though since she is far from her family too. Some days it doesn't bother me, but with the holidays coming and not being with my parents for Christmas, plus my "condition" as my dad calls it, I am a mess.

I didn't do a good job of taking pics while my mom and dad were here, but Clayton had sooooo much fun staying home with them on Monday and Tuesday. So much so that he is reaching for Nana and Papa instead of Mommy and Daddy! They took wagon rides, played with Clayton's new chalkboard, he took naps and rocked with Papa, got anything he wanted from Nana (including her yummy pancakes), and so on. Plus his second favorite dog dog Aunt Ellie was there. I know he is going to be sad when he comes home this evening and everyone is gone. We can't wait to see you guys for New Years and Aunt Anna and Uncle David! Thank you soooooo much for all your help around the house and with Clayton! We love you tons!

I wonder if they are looking for counselors at Thompson, in the school or prison?

Our whole family can work there! Mom said she would be a sub teacher (I said they might ask to go to the electric chair). Dad can be a security guard. (He is a good shot) Justin can be a enviromental specialist (Long story)David can teach history and I can do HR!

I wonder if anyone will comment on this after seeing everything that we wrote. Surprisingly, I was able to get a lot done today and entertain "someone"! HAHA
