Is a bunch of crap. Bad things don't just come in three's. The past few weeks have taught me that a lot of shit can be thrown our way and no matter how much I cry, cus and scream there's a good chance that more will keep coming. and coming. I know I'm going to jinx myself by saying at least everyone is healthy and we have a home. But its true. As of right now we are all healthy and our home is sorta standing.
It all started 2 days after thanksgiving and our washing machine died. Between cloth diapers and cloth paper towels this house cannot go with out a washer. BUT, it was the weekend after thanksgiving and we got a smokin deal on a washer. I could finally get rid of my HE washer and go back to the old fashion, top load, non smelling, watch my clothes get cleaned and be able to soak my diapers kind of washer.
Everything seemed great until a few days later when I didn't pull my car all of the way into the garage and the garage door came down, hit my bumper and didn't bounce back up. It just kept pushing down on my bumper until the garage door crumbled in on itself. Thank god my husband can fix almost everything. He took the door apart, reinforced it here, pounded on it there and hung it back up. Good as new...almost.
Once again everything was going great. We were getting ready to go on our family vacation in 2 days and I was running out one evening to pick something up for my sister with my kiddos. I pushed the garage door opener and all of a sudden we heard a weird grinding sound then a GIANT POP!! I had left the back window open in my expedition and when I opened the garage door it caught the window and exploded it. SHIT!! We leave in a few days, this is going to cost money we don't have, and I am out a car. shit, shit, shit...
Once again SAFECO insurance to the rescue. (they were a huge help when my car got broken in to) When I called and told them what an idiot I was the very nice man I the phone chuckled and said his brother did the same thing and that it would be free. It was a Christmas miracle!!!
A guy was at my home by 11 am and a new window was in by 12. Phew.
Normally I would have a ton of pictures documenting all of this craziness but shockingly I didn't. Until this one. Can you guess which one this was from
By 7 am Friday morning we were leaving it all behind with the rain, wind and snow and I no longer cared. All that mattered was that I'm was with my family heading some place warm and awesome.
Can you guess where we went?
Besides on a balcony with a cocktail and a perfect sunset.
There will be plenty more picture and stories from our vacation but right now I am wrapping my brain around the fact that we came home to a roof that has a leak and may not be under warranty.
This morning I found Molly in her crib naked. She had taken everything off her body then took a dump. Everything had crap on it except for her diaper. I thought for sure I had this situation fixed weeks ago when I started putting her underwear on over her diapers. I guess she can now get them off too. Normally I would have taken a picture of this event but I was to busy dry heaving while giving her a bath at 6 in the morning.
Now I am left with the question. How do I keep her diapers on while she is alone in her crib?
This is what I came up with
I cut the feet off of one of her old footed jams and turned then around. If she can get out of theses I need to suck it up and just potty train her.
I hope it doesn't sound like I'm complaining about all of this. Because in the end all of this crap sandwiched a fantastic vacation and I am a true believer there is a reason for everything. and so far each thing that has happened has made me so thankful for the things we have to help us get through them. A talented husband, insurance and the thing with Molly, well that just funny and hopefully my brain gets us through this one.
Thanks for letting me vent!
