So many things have gone hay-wire.. but FINALLY we are back to "normal" !! (as normal as my house can be)
we have soccer 6 days a week, which means cereal for dinner most nights (or mcdonalds.. i'd rather starve) and FHE on the soccer field or in the car.
school for 5 days which means homework..(not too much yet..thank goodness)
my air conditioner works again... no more living in a hole...
my water heater is put back together and works again.. no more luke warm showers..
my house is clean by 10 and I can feel like I have accomplished something until the tornado hits again..(kids)
Laundry will somewhat slow down.. only 2 loads a day instead of 5 (happy mom!)
and finally we are on somewhat of an order balance now..
and acutally I am really enjoying it...

taking it for granted...

I really have been trying to be cautious lately.. taking advantage of sales and trying to teach the kids how to bargain shop... well I should have known it was too good to be true.. life seemed to be going all too well...

Ya know its hot in here... oh my heck the AC isn't working...I take so many things for granted...we had no AC in our last house.. and we lasted 7 years there.. no problem, so why does 3 days seem to be a lifetime here?
I have now decided that there are so many things in my life that I expect to work and to happen...I think it really may be time to step back and inspect my thinking and try to do better...and that is what it is all about right? trying to do better?
