Monday we started our day out with no hot water. Cold showers in the morning are NOT fun. Our water heater wasn't 'lit'... Ryan messed with it, got it working... good to go, so we thought! Skip to Wednesday night - we just thought we would check the water heater again... not 'lit'. Damn. The kids took a bath together in order to 'save water' (holy crap!)... Ryan messed with it again, for awhile... and it finally lit late that night. With all of that back and forth - we just decided it needed to be replaced. It's 8 years old - we've put money into it already (thinking 3 times already!)... and when it acts up, it's at the most inopportune times!!! Thursday afternoon (while we were in MN) - we got a new water heater. Merry Christmas to us. :(
In addition to Wednesday's water issue...
I got a phone call from daycare (I seem to be on speed dial lately) - Cora accidentally had a teacher step on her hair while Cora was resting (or attempting to rest)... and pulled a chunk of hair out. OMG. Seriously?? She was fine...
Then we got home Wednesday night from work/school - completely expecting to have my crock pot meal ready to go, smelling amazing... nope. It didn't cook!!! Crock pot didn't work... and we've checked it again, I can't get it to stay on. Again - OMG. What a freaking day.
So... moving on to the weekend.
Ryan and I got home Friday afternoon... Cora got her hairs trimmed up, and home we stayed Friday night.
Kayson started his basketball season with a practice...
Cora complained of her ear hurting. Great. But survived all day... and she seemed fine?!
I was crabby. Tired. Emotional. All.day.long... which continued into Sunday.
Kayson played at a friends house.
I did an errand, as well as grocery shopped.
More crabby Janelle - extremely emotional as well.
I worry about Christmas - as expected, we don't have much for our kids (or at least Kayson), as he didn't have a big list - and other ideas went out to the rest of the family. Just irritated. Stressed. Anxious. I miss Mom. You name it - I'm kind of a mess!!
Here are a few pics of the weekend... it was nice just being home... now onto a new week with Ryan traveling, and praying the kids are good and healthy this week!
