I’m back!- Sort of

I have to say, the last few weeks at my house have been INSANE.  It has just been one thing after another, but through it all, God is still good.

It all started with the crazy weather.  We had some of the coldest temperatures on record a few weeks ago.  It was in the -14 area I think.  For people up north I’m sure that is nothing, but for us in the south, that is huge!  Schools were cancelled, businesses closed, and APS couldn’t start their buses.  We ended up having a frozen water pipe (which thankfully did NOT burst), but it took us awhile to find it (read a day and a half).  My awesome hubby found it and defrosted it, but during the time we couldn’t find it, we didn’t have ANY water running into the house.  I had a party to do on Sat. of that week and I couldn’t get a lot of the baking done because I didn’t have water to clean it all up.

The same morning we lost the water, we lost internet and cable for a little while.  Thankfully that didn’t last nearly as long.  Then Sat I had the party (which, since we got the water back, I was able to finish my baking), which then led into another crazy week.

Monday we woke up to a flooding back yard.  A pipe in our sprinkler system broke.  It took the water guy 24 hours to come and turn our water off.  Greg was in the shower at the time.  You can imagine how that went!

A week and a half ago on Thursday I got the stomach flu.  That was a huge deal because I haven’t thrown up since before I was married (in over 7 years!)  I felt nauseous for a few days and then was better.  We lost our power for a few hours that Sat because someone ran into a power line.

Greg was gone all last week and my mom came to stay with me.  Thankfully she did since Asa woke up a few times in the middle of the night and I had the MHLP.  It was a busy week.  Asa woke up with the flu on Thursday night and had a roaring fever for 2 1/2 days.  Now he had sinus junk.  How do I know that?  Because my friends, I woke up with it yesterday morning too!  Like I said, crazy few weeks!

To top it all off, we got to go to a friends surprise party Friday, I went to a bridal shower Sat and hosted one on Sunday. At least through it all God is still good.  We have our needs met and have had a good laugh about it all.

I’m hoping to post the parties soon.  With Greg out of town last week I didn’t have a computer to write blog posts and upload pictures with, so stay tuned.  Hopefully they will be up in the next week or two!  I hope you are all doing well!
