An almost daily (when mobile posting is working for me) chronicle of the wild and wonderful happenings in the Galletti household!
Come sit and read a spell.
It's gonna be a bright, bright, bright, sun shiny day
1 PM: The kids, dog, and I are hanging out in the creek at Barton Springs with some old friends and their kids.
3 PM: We are all safe but our house is still in danger.
Everything at our place ended up just fine. Joe spent the night back in the house but the kids, dog, and I spent the night in a local hotel until we were cleared to re-enter our neighborhood the next morning.
Here's Waylon enjoying the view from our hotel window.
The view of the main burn area from the backyard of one of the burnt-down houses the next morning.
And a view of the burnt area from our house; it's the blackened hillside that you can see between the trees. That's an Austin Fire Department fully-extended ladder/ hose sticking up there in the middle.
Being a mom is the greatest and most challenging job that I've ever had; there's nothing else that I'd rather do! The paycheck is the biggest and best ever - I get hugs and kisses from everyone every day! I'm trying to be the best mom (and homeschool teacher) I possibly can to my kids and I'm trying to have as much fun as possible in the process. Kids are a LOT of work and anyone that expects that guiding them through life will be easy and less than a life-long commitment is fooling themselves and probably shortchanging their kids to boot. My husband and I have been together for 28 years and our love and adoration and respect for each other grows greater with every passing year! We try our best to surround ourselves with friends who appreciate their lives the same way that we do and try to help the ones that don't. Life can be so amazing, if you want it to be!
