But, nonetheless, we got a call last night that we have a big leak at our vacation house. When we bought it, we put a condition in on fixing a flashing issue on the roof, & also resealing the door to the deck. Either the work wasn't done correctly, or the Oregon pounding rain just accelerated the decay of the door, but the entire door, all of the woodwork & some of the roof needs to be fixed. Additionally, it needs to be done NOW, as any further delay will damage the wood floor inside the house.
M was gone ALL week, & is now home sick with a terrible flu. Again. He was only supposed to be gone for one day next week, but it now looks like he'll spend most of the week working from Oregon, to try & correct the problem. Which leaves me with all of the kid stuff - I offered to watch another child on Tuesday to help out a mom, ski bus on Wednesday for S + another kiddo (again, trading with another mom) & all of the pickups, drop offs, & work. Yikes.
Because no one likes a whiny post, here are a few nuggets of good news:
- I baked two more amazing loaves of bread. HEAVEN! I'm not a bread maker at all, so highly recommend this recipe for novices.
- I ran 7 miles today. I'm exhausted, but happy with myself.
- I got a hair cut! Just in time for the video on Monday. ;-)
- Our second refinance went through on Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After all that time investment, I'm thrilled.
Now on to make soup for the sick husband, relax a bit with the kiddos (ha, ha) & prep for tomorrow.
Hope Murphy is avoiding your house!
And, S pushed a fence open, it popped back up & hit him in the face. Poor guy, first black eye!
