Free Friday

Perspective, something I'm learning. It's 2:00 in the afternoon here and it's been a somewhat crazy day already. This morning the toilets clogged and runneth over. Robert was home and rented a snake to unclog the pipes. Thank God he was home to fix it and that we have pipes to fix. There's a forest fire somewhere near us, but not a bad one and not by us. However, the sky is very hazy. Thank God it's not by us and that we do have very clear skies most of the time. Just got our water bill, which was higher then normal. Most likely from the water leak (outside) that we had a couple of weeks ago. The leak could've been bad, but it turned out okay, messy, but ok. Colleen hit her knee on Jared's bed, but it wasn't too bad. We had a "mix-up" in our $, that left us saying "What?!" Thank God it will work out in the end.
We had a talk w/Jared last night about how good we really have it, being Americans, etc., etc. So, I'm here telling myself the same things. It could be worse... and I do know that really these aren't all that bad. Just sometimes you need a perspective check.
Other than my going on, we are getting ready for Robert's mom and our niece to come on Wed. They will be here for about 2 1/2 weeks. Nancy, Robert's sister will be here around the 4Th of July. So that will be a fun time. The kids are at a party for Children's Choir. The weather is a bit cooler today, which is nice.
Well, I'll leave you with a quote I read today..."when you get to the end of your rope...tie a knot and HANG ON!"
