Everyone has them and I am no different. Everyday of our loves is a hodge podge of ups and downs. Some ups are higher than others and some downs are lower. It's life. It's what keeps things interesting. It has been a crazy kind of week. I have been so busy with stuff I haven't been able to do the "homey" stuff with the exception of making yogurt. Seriously I love the fact that I can make yogurt now. Its the little things...ya know?
Anyway, some of my er ah challenges this week include a leaky roof, a leaking sink, and a washer on the fritz. Wonderful joyous discoveries. Dh will fix the sink, but I will need to call our fix it guy for the roof and an appliance repairman for the washer. All of this and its 3 months til Christmas...THREE MONTHS TIL CHRISTMAS!!!! Okay, uh Bye! Just kidding. Not leaving yet, but I do need to start the ball rolling so to speak. Also everyone's birthday falls in the next 3 months so things will definitely be busy.
The joys this week greatly out weigh the challenges. My son in law received a new position at work which will enable him and my daughter to work opposite schedules so my grand boys won't have to go to a baby sitter. This will help them immensely.
I had my yearly doctors appointment this week and all my labs are good, and my weight has held steady, which is 20 lbs down from 2 years ago! In fact my cholesterol is down some from last year. 177 is the magic number. WOOT WOOT. What have I been eating? Why butter, red meat, whole milk, and all the other things they say no no too. HA so there! I am resisting the urge to say neener neener to all the low fat diet folks. Oh why not! Neener neener! Full disclaimer here; everything in moderation, and I still don't fry stuff too much.
Last night was an evening controlled by our sons Einstein and Rubic. We went out to dinner and they go to go to some store they like. Both of them are training to get drivers permits, but they don't have them yet. Between Rubic's lessens, my working and only having the one car, they don't get to get out of the house very much so we wanted to take them out. This morning Dh and I are going out. We may be going to walk a nature trail or something, and maybe going to an antique shop or two. Rubic and Einstein are babysitting our grandsons. Another reason why they went out last night instead of today. I am looking forward to a day out with my fella.
Tomorrow is a day that I will be spending with my sister. Will actually will be sewing cause The Ric Rac is closed on Sunday. Lol. I will head on over after church. I love the times we get to spend together. Dh will be watching his football. I know he's happy about that. Watching it on his huge TV we got at The Ric Rac for 20 bucks!
Also on the good news front, our power bill was less again than this time last year; by about 45 dollars. I'll take that. Every little bit helps.
So there you have it; my week in a nut shell. Do I get frustrated with the challenges. Yes I do. Do I still sleep well at night. Yes I do. I do because I know whatever happens, A) there are many people going thru much bigger problems, and B) God is in control.
