Thanksgiving Week! Is it just me or did Thanksgiving pop out of nowhere? I think with all of the warm Fall weather [not complaining!] it kind of snuck up on me. At any rate, we're excited it's here!
We finally have the space to "host" quotation marks, because my awesome in-laws will be providing most everything, it's just happening at our house. We're excited!
Last week our washing machine's output hose got clogged. I may be a minority in the fact that I reserve one day a week for laundry. Almost always, it's the only day of the week the washing machine and dryer run. If I didn't do it that way, I think I would always feel like there was laundry to be done. Mondays are my reserved days. Also, when I reserve it for just one day that's all I think about all day, so a load never [most likely] gets forgotten in the washer needing to be moved to the dryer or the dryer needing to be folded and put away.
So, last Monday during my first load I kept getting an error message. Long story a little bit shorter, the output drain was clogged.
Centerpoint Service Plus to the rescue once again. If you don't know what this is, look it up, best investment ever, it has paid for itself over and over and over again :) Buuuuuuuuuut when I called on Monday, they weren't able to come out until THURSDAY!! Being that I only do laundry once a week, that was kind of a big deal.
"I'm sorry, but there are other emergency situations like furnaces not working and no hot water that come first."
Clearly, she didn't understand that a washer being out WAS a top emergency. I'm happy to report we did make it through.
2 looooooooong nails and a bra underwire were the problem. Neither owned or used by anyone currently living in this house. Thanks previous house owners ;)
Delo came out for a coffee, game playing morning! We miss her!
This showed up on my timehop last week...my oh my what a difference a year can make. And also, how did I survive that stage of life? I think I blacked out...
I love Libby's journal entries. This is one of my favorites. "That's Jesus' tomb, it's empty though, because he rose from the dead."
Have I mentioned Libby's going to be a great lawyer some day? This girl knows how to win a battle.
She wanted her VBS songs on in the car for the billionth time. I said we're just going to enjoy the peace and quiet for a bit.
"Mom, don't you want me to learn more about the Lord?"
I mean seriously, how do you respond to something like that?
Father Don came to visit on Sunday! We had our first meal at our formal table, a gift from him!! What a blessing he is to our Family! The girls (and Reid and I) had an unforgettable time as he blessed our whole house!
