I feel like it's been ages since my last post . . . oh wait a minute . . . it has been ages!! For some reason, it's been really hard for me to blog this winter. I don't know if I just feel overwhelmed, or maybe it's just the lack of sunshine! I've had a lot going on, and I sometimes do feel overwhelmed with life in general . . . that sounds like a cop-out, let me re-phrase that. I sometimes allow myself to get too much on my plate, and then, I don't use my time wisely . . . better.
Where do I start. It's been cold here in Idaho, and I really do mean cold. For almost the entire month of February, we were in the single digits, or below. I think my body just tried to shut down at that point! It's slowly warming up, hopefully, we will get a heat wave, and melt the 6 inches of new snow that fell this morning... :0) Looks kind of cool sliding off of the roof!
Let's see - Valentine's Day. We were gone that morning, and when I came home, this is what I found on my front steps - my sweet neighbor had given me a "Valentine's Heart Attack", along with delicious chocolate covered blueberries!! It was so sweet, I almost cried! I love good neighbors and friends!
That night we out to dinner with some friends, then went to see, "McManus In Love". It's a one-man comedy, written by Patrick F. McManus, starring Tim Behrens, it was a two hour show, and just hillarious! This is a long clip - just warning you! Watch it if you have time.... :0)
Last Saturday, we discovered a leak in the drain pipe, behind the wall in my kitchen, behind the dishwasher - 2:00 in the morning, it was a lovely find!! Needless to say, it was a mess! We called the insurance company on Monday morning, and before we knew it, there were people knocking on our door ready to start working - it was wonderful!! After days of de-humidifying, and listening to the hepa-filter machine, I was ready to have it over with. Yesterday, they came and took the siding off of the back of the house, so that the pipe could be fixed. Bob replaced the pipe, the restoration company fixed and replaced everything that needed replacing, cleaned everything that needed cleaned, replaced the siding, took the machines home - and I have my house back!
More later - it's good to be back, although, I noticed that some of my favorite people are no longer blogging. This has been something I have contemplated myself. But, this is my journal, this is where my family can find out what's happening in my life, and know some of my thoughts . . . think I'll stay a while. I'm looking forward to checking in and commenting on your blogs!!
