Raining in Vegas?


You have to blow up this picture to see his face...
THIS is how he eats crackers.
ALL over his face, hands, clothes, the floor...the television, his toys...
you can just see a trail...
all from saltine crackers.
The only "solid" food that he eats.
Now...let us discuss the RAIN in Las Vegas for a moment.
You KNOW that we are drama magnets. We don't want it...but, it finds us and clings to us like crazy! AND...drama is at it again...
Can I just say that my dryer is broken, today our ac unit broke (which will cost $2500 to fix), and Joe's LAST day of employment is next week.
(yes...i will soon be adding a "donate now" button on my sidebar)

seriously...
could it get any worse?
(shhh...don't answer that...because in our world...it can).

BUT....I'm helping my sister pack up her house...and she's giving me her dryer (among LOTS of other goodies), the ac will be fixed tomorrow, and...well....I've got nothing to report on the job front yet.
I know it will eventually be ok...it always is. Do you remember 2 years ago....Isaac had his 2nd heart surgery (the 14 hour one), we came home with our baby MIRACULOUSLY, and then Joe lost his job, all the while our mortgage interest rate adjusted (totally ticking me off).
It was all just horrible at that time...
but, we survived...
and I know we will now.
It's just too darn hot for all this drama....I wish it would have waited until fall or winter...I could probably handle it a little better that time of year.

SO...other than all of the above...I'm driving out to Phoenix tomorrow to help my sister pack up and I'll be back Saturday night.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell drama to leave me alone for just a few days...my nerves can't take anymore.

That just stinks! My hubby does heating and air and it can be crazy expensive - too bad we don't live closer I'd send him over to fix it. When it rains it pours, right? I didn't know about Joe's job - that stinks. It always seemed he was working his behind off - can't imagine who wouldn't want to keep a worker like that. And your right - girls don't handle things as well when it's hot. I don't do hot.

I am sorry to hear everything is not going your way and you are right it is very HOT. Don't you guys have home warranty insurance we do, we got it when we got the house and we are going to renew it in October it will cost $600.00 but in the end it will pay off if anything brakes down. Have a safe trip.

You are the sweetest family I know, so I pray you can be (deservedly) drama-free for a while! I know how it feels when in the midst of craziness. It is overwhelming, tiring, scary.. BUT, you are right. This, too, shall pass, and we always manage to get through. Hang in there. Have a good drama-free trip this weekend. Be safe!

So sorry to hear about the drama. I hope Joe can find work soon. It's a very scary time out there. Good Luck.
