No caliente fria
Okay, it’s been forever and a day since I last posted anything, but believe me or not, we really have been busy! We got to take a trip to Greenville. It was so fun to see our friends!! Stu was involved with the Camp On Wheels board meeting and he says that it went well. I try not to get too involved with the details. While we were there I got to go to my friend Rachael’s baby shower!! That was lots of fun! She’s due on Valentine’s Day, we’ll see if she gets a little cupid or not.
Anyway, this week we’ve been in recovery mode.. from the trip that is. Trying to get the house in order, and catch up on what seemed like a ginormous pile of laundry. Whew! It’s finally caught up though! I did the final 2 loads today. I also vacuumed, dusted (I won’t even tell you how long it’s been since I did that- bad me!) and cleaned up the utility room. So I’ve been hoppin’ but I feel like we’re stabilized for now.
The only thing that’s throwing a wrench in the works for our wonderful weekend coming up is that our hot water heater is on strike! Yesterday morning I woke up ready for a luxuriously hot steamy shower only to find that there wasn’t any hot water. Stu worked on the thing for a bit before he had to leave for camp. We thought it might be this one piece, so I got a replacement while I was in town, but no such luck. Stu worked on it for quite awhile last night and is at it again today. I’ve been heating water on the stove to do the dishes and I think I’ll do the same and have a bath at least tonight if nothing else is available. It just makes you think about how we should be thankful for the things we often take for granted. I’m very thankful for hot water, and even though right now it’s being a bit of a headache, I know that eventually we’ll have hot water again, and I’m thankful for that too!
So, hopefully that gets you at least somewhat caught up with me. Have a marvelous weekend!
