What a week and it's only Monday!

So we got back from vacation late last night and my day started with having a log replaced on the foundation of our house.   More than half the day and a hefty check written to the nice man who replaced it later, it was time to do some serious shopping.  It was one of those Wal-Mart trips where we needed everything plus gas. 

So another hefty check written later, we were off to pick up one of our cars from the shop.  We had dropped it off at the shop while on vacation to see why it was leaking antifreeze.  Another hefty check written out and we headed back home in the heat to unload the car and start dinner. 

As we finished up putting the last items away, my husband noticed that there was water coming from cabinet underneath the sink.  We opened the doors to find it flooded underneath and the pipes broken.  I began cleaning as he headed off to Lowes and True Value.  After one more trip to Lowes this evening for more parts and he has now "built it back better".  So that was my Monday.....

I wonder what Tuesday has in store besides heading back to work.....?!

  10. Good heavens!!! You were just a check-writin' machine, hm, Candace?!?!?! Poor you!!! I hope things are looking up today for you and thankfully your husband was able to fix the plumbing!! My brothers are plumbers and I wouldn't want to have to pay their rates!! :-)

  11. Jewel, yes!!! It was a tad bit stressful; but we made it through. We were so thankful that he was able to fix the plumbing without having to find a plumber. I don't know one so I was ready to hit my Facebook friends up for advice. With the plumbing, it really worked out okay because we had an issue with it several months ago that my husband has been a bit concerned about. With this part breaking, he got the revelation of how to fix not only this new part but the other part that he had been concerned about. So.....Go God! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! Hope you have a great week, Candace
