I have to admit that this weekend was a trying one. Not because it was Mother's Day and my kids woke me up early but because when I went down to our bedroom on Saturday after work I noticed water on our bedroom floor. Ugh, *sigh*, eye roll. Are you kidding me? I asked my daughter to go get her father, who promptly had what can almost be referred to as a "man"-trum. "Why does this always happen? When are we going to get ahead? etc"
I tried to keep a cool head. So far as we can see it, the septic system either backed up into our bedroom, or there is a leaky pipe to the septic system. Either way you slice it... EWWWW!
SO! Instead of having a relaxing Saturday afternoon off, we spent the time relocating our room upstairs between the kids rooms. Joy! I mean really? Why should they have to go all the way downstairs to wake me up when they can just open their door? Once again, UGH!
First thing Monday morning I was on the phone with Angie's Pooper Pumping Service. (Awesome name, I know!) Not only were they there within the hour, the whole job was done shortly after 11 and I was still able to run my errands. I'm hopeful that all we needed was the pump the tanks. Cross your fingers for us and say a little prayer!
A good friend at church reminded me that "this too shall pass" and that God has us in his hands.
You know the saying, the grass is always greener on the other side? This is my attempt to find greener grass right where I am in my life.
BTW - I'm the one on the right, just in case you didn't already know that.
