This & That

I got behind on the blog again...I swear I'm gonna get better! I've been so busy lately, and a little bit (okay that's an understatement) stressed out. But the stress levels are going down and I'm starting to feel at peace with everything. I'll post about all that later, but for now I'll just do a little update on life :)

I came home one day last week to Lee in the kitchen floor with a bunch of towels. There was water all over the floor and we couldn't figure out what was leaking. I got some more towels and started trying to help dry off the floor and Lee opened the freezer door...water was dripping from the ice bucket. Whew, okay, the ice maker's broken, no big deal. Then I started thinking...wait a minute...I'm pretty sure the ice wouldn't melt just because the ice maker quit working. Yeah, definitely not. EVERYTHING we had in the freezer had thawed out. Boo! So then we looked at everything in the fridge. It wasn't working anymore either. Not cool. Literally. Thankfully we still have our home warranty so we didn't have to pay too much to get it fixed, but it still sucks to have to throw out ALL your food. That was last Wednesday. We had cooked a pork loin in the crock pot that day so we got a bag of ice and kept it in the cooler all night, then we both took some to work the next day to keep in the fridge there. We were going out of town for the weekend so we weren't too worried about that.

The guy came to look at it Friday and said he'd have to order a part. So we were without a refrigerator or freezer until Tuesday. Lee went to a fast-food place Monday morning and got a whole bunch of packs of jelly, so we've pretty much been living off that since then. (They're both fixed now, I just haven't been to the store yet!!)

This weekend we went to the beach with my parents for Easter. My dad has a friend who's a pastor down there that he had not seen in a long time, so we went to his church Sunday morning. He seemed so excited to see my dad! The weather was BEAUTIFUL down there. I love the beach so much. It was hard to come home.

I've spent most of my time after work this week trying to get all the weeds out of the yard. We were THAT house on the street. I was really embarrassed. I was afraid we'd get a letter from the HOA telling us we needed to do something about our yard! We finally got most of them up, but I noticed more already yesterday. Plus it rained pretty hard last night so I'm sure I'll spend more time this weekend pulling more.

We're gonna have a busy weekend this weekend, too. But I'm so excited about it! Tomorrow night we have a birthday party for Lee's aunt. Then my brother, sister-in-law and nieces are coming up to spend the night with us. There's a shower for Sunny on Saturday, and it's my mom's birthday. Then Saturday night my sister, brother-in-law and nephews are spending the night. One of my best friends in the world is coming up for Sunny's shower too, so I can't wait to see her! So that pretty much sums up my life over the last week! How have YOU been?
