Life Keeps Getting in the Way of Our Life


This post contains graphic pictures of real life.
May not be suitable for those who think people with blogs lead ideal lives.

This is our house. Although it feels like we've done nothing but clean it since Saturday, it looks the same. Maybe this is why:

Saturday: Instead of unpacking, Jake spent the day cleaning up the tree-sized branch that fell onto our roof.

Sunday: Met with a member of our church leadership, who promptly asks us to speak next Sunday. Sure, we have time to plan for that.

Monday: I washed a load of laundry and then found out that the dryer doesn't receive any power. All laundry is now on hold.

Tuesday: Still can't get the pool cleaner to work. Go to Home Depot and spend more money.

Wednesday: Jake tries to leave for work, but has a dead car battery. He takes my car and I stay at home all day instead of going to the old house to clean it up.

Thursday: Finally with a car again, I head out to the old house, only to discover that I have a flat tire (#5 or 6 in the last several weeks, I've lost count).

Friday & Saturday, what do you have in store for us? Bring it on.

That sounds so crazy!!!! What a dumb week! It was great to see you guys at Walmart... I'm sure that made your week better! If you need an electrician for your dryer... call my husband! :-)

I love your warning. We could all use a dose of real life in the blogosphere once in a while.

I don't think I've ever had a flat tire. How could you possibly get five in a couple months?!! What on earth???

Life has a way of ganging up on us, doesn't it? I had my 2nd knee surgery 23 weeks ago. It didn't go as well as last time, but I hope to be dancing by Nathan's wedding. An old pro like you will have your house looking beautiful in no time at all. Oh I still haven't heard what the baby is going to be and want to do a receiving blanket set for him/her. If it's not a secret, please let me know. :) auntie"m"
