When It Rains, It Pours!

Well, I have been a little quiet lately, but I have very good reasons.  I have had the best of intentions, but I just haven't had time to sit down and put anything together that I thought anyone would care about reading.  You know how life gets in the way sometimes of what you really  love to do, what you really enjoy doing??  Well, it's been a couple of those weeks for me.

Wrapping up the school year was CRAZY!  I had FOUR graduations.  Yes, four, to do.  I started with Senior graduation and then went to kindergarten, eighth grade, and then fifth grade.  Holy cow, what a busy week that was!!  BUT...I survived, and I get to do it all again next year!!

The raining/pouring part came this week.  On Sunday afternoon we had a terrible thunderstorm.  Lord knows we needed the rain, BUT....we did NOT need the lightning that accompanied it.  We really believed that something in our house was struck by lightning, but we couldn't figure out what it was at the time.  Monday afternoon, it was pretty apparent what it was ---- the refrigerator.  I LOVED my refrigerator.  It was black and blended with my cabinets perfectly.  BUT...now I have a new refrigerator.  Didn't plan on having to make such a costly purchase right now.

Then the pouring part came.  The house seemed REALLY warm yesterday, and it turns out the AIR CONDITIONER quit working!!!!!!  Can you believe that???  TWO major problems in one week.  It was soooo hot in here last night, even with ceiling fans and window fans.  At 2 this morning, it was 88 degrees in the house!!!  Thankfully, it is now fixed tonight, and we are starting to cool down.

I have been working on a few projects in the midst of all this craziness, but now I have to recover the house from the refrigerator disaster and the air conditioner disaster this week.  It's almost like we have gone through another hurricane here this week without our conveniences we are so spoiled with!!

Hope all you had a MUCH BETTER week than I did.  The good news is, it's over, and the weekend is here!!  WOOHOO!!!!
