Week in Review

Remember when you were a kid and you could use "time-out" during an event and everyone automatically obeyed? Or when you were able to "re-do" when you weren't happy with the outcome? I desperately wish that I could have used both of those this week!

Why? Well.....
because poor Seeley had a double ear infection and just did not feel well at all,
we found a water moccasin on our front porch,
it's the most dreaded time of year at work-budget time,
we discovered the Niagara Falls of leaks under our kitchen sink,
water was seeping up from under our kitchen floor thanks to Niagara Falls so now half of my kitchen floor is ripped up,
still no dishwasher thanks to the aforementioned issue,
handwashing dishes in the bathroom sink until the dam at Niagara is closed down.


Only two bright spots to my week-
1. Jeremy turns 31 on Sunday and I'm super thrilled to still be in my 20's
2. Seeley was Baptised this past Sunday

He was such a good boy during the Baptism and as you can tell by the pictures he fell asleep almost immediately following. What made it really special was that he was Baptised with his cousin Parker.

Seeley and Emma are such a blessing in our lives. Whenever I feel a "re-do" coming on I just snuggle with the kiddos and all is right in the world again.

And having a hubs who will bring a Dr. Pepper to your office at 2 in the afternoon because you just can't face the upcoming budget meeting without some caffeine is definitely a blessing as well.
He calmly weathered my "I'm-freaking-out-and-don't-know-how-much-more-of-this-I-can-take!" storm this week like a pro. Best hubs in the world.

Oh Steph, that is no fun at all. You should have taken out your frustrations on the Walmart granny!

Jenn-She's been mysteriously absent the past week or so. I had nothing to do with it. Promise!
