So Crazy Around Here!


It's been a crazy few days since I last posted. Here's a recap:


Refrigerator in my kitchen died. Emptied it and threw half of the frozen foods away. Cleaned it out top to bottom. Had the refrigerator repaired.


My good friend who lives in New York came to our part of the country. She was in Kansas so I drove up there for the day to visit her. It was so wonderful to see her.

Husband came home from Colorado. He'd been gone for 6 days so he was very tired and grumpy. You understand.

Valentine's Day with my sweet hubby (who was then well rested) and boys. Paul and I went out to dinner at a place called Deep Fork Grill. It was delicious! We celebrated 21 years!!

Washing machine died...dryer was already barely working. Had to order new ones. Not good timing. You understand.

Big dog ate about 5 cupcakes that I put in the trash - because they were overcooked. Now I am on dog watch.

Husband left town. #1 son went back to college. #2 son barely knows I exist. I'm alone again with the dogs.


Dad comes tomorrow to help me paint my kitchen. Woo Hoo!

Doesn't everything seem to go out at once? It sounds chaotic at your house right now. Watch that dog. I had a built-in trash can built into the bottom cabinet when I remodeled the kitchen last year for that very reason!

Woah! I won't complain about my week! You've got me beat!! I do understand about the appliances, though! My washer was in its death throes for over a year...refused to die. Finally the dryer died, so I sent them to appliance heaven together and a whole new couple lives in my house now...happily ever after, I hope! I told my daughter my next ones will be the ones at the old folks home!! lol have a great week...Debbie
PS...I'm alone with the cats!! lol

Isn't it something how quickly events in a weekend can change? Sounds like you certainly did not have a boring Valentine's Day weekend. It does seem that when one appliance goes...they all follow suit. Never could understand that. Hope things will relax somewhat for you. I like the picture of the candle. I can almost smell the aroma.

Stacey,

You have all your blogging friends. I am sorry about your appliances and your hubby out of town. Hang in there, you are the best.

Stacey, I know I shouldn't be laughing at your misery! Forgive me please.

I do understand tho. Why does everything break at once? It's both inconvenient and expense. Understand how the husband. Understand about the dog. Understand about the son. ;-)

Hi Stacey, it sounds like you had a "challenging" week! Don't ya hate when that all happens at once?
I am thrilled that you stopped by to check out my blog! Come back soon!
I hope you find the color you're looking for at the paint sale!

Life comes at you fast sometimes. I'll pray nothing else breaks down! We all understand the ups and downs, Stacey. I hope you have fun with your dad! Twyla

WOW Stacey you have had a CRAZY week! I hope this one goes much better for you!♥

Your comment about the burned grass is so true. We drove to Norman, OK on Sunday and there were all sorts of burned patches down the highway. We definitely need more than just one day of rain. I am kind of excited though since the forecast for Tuesday is sunny and 70's....bring it on!!!
