I am so glad to see this sight.
There was a leak in the plumbing in the slab of this house.
This meant that workers have been here everyday for the past 4 days, from 8am until 6pm.
On top of that, it has been pouring rain, which meant that much of the outside muck made it into the house, from shoes or various equipment being brought in. It has been a huge inconvenience, but I am happy to report that is behind me now.
And then came yesterday.
Mind you, it is still pouring rain.
I went to pick up Allie from a birthday party. I missed my turn. I went to turn around. I got stuck in the mud. My cars wheels spinning. I panicked. I had no cell service due to the storm. I had Jack and Emily in the car. And Bobby was a million miles away in North Carolina. I cried. Then I straightened up and put on my thinking cap.
I ripped branches off a nearby bush and I put them behind each tire. After I felt I had done enough. I backed out. I got us out. I cried again. tears of joy.
On the bright side of things, all of this rain has filled the dry stream bed in the front yard of the house.
And the girls playing in it is a priceless memory.
Sometimes you have to go through the bad to get to the good.
