I have found this past week to be trying. We all have weeks, moments when we are over wrought, burdened by life. I had a week, such as that. I fell down the stairs that lead into the garage, last Sunday. I was gathering trash and had on flip flops. Yes, I flipped and then I flopped landing on concrete. I couldn't get up and hubby had to carry me in the house. Frozen peas and elevating my ankle became my world. Then my daughter got bit, nicked by a dog, she is okay. It was tiny cut, not deep. It was one of those take your breath away moments. Then our AC fan stopped working. I noticed on Friday, our house felt hot. I went to check and the temp was up to 80. Our thermostat was set on 75. I had to call the AC company to come out and look at the unit. We are still under warranty for parts, but you know labor co$ts. So much fun.... We were told they couldn't order this certain fan, till Monday. We have to wait till the part comes in and then they will be back. I figure if we are lucky Thursday or Friday our home will be cool again. I kept trying to get online, but my ankle would swell. I thought about hubby's lap top, but he was on it. The heat, the pain got the best of me. I wish it was just my ankle that I sprained, but my back is bothering me. I have missed blogging and catching up~ I kept busy, when I wasn't icing up I worked on some art projects. Every time I attempted to get online...the computer seemed to lag, it was too hot. It was 88 in my house, the only cool place was in the Frog. We have a window unit up there, the rest of the house is central air. Everyone slept in the FROG...nothing like a crisis to bring the family together, lol.
It was also time to celebrate my son's birthday. I was not going to use the oven no way, no how. Yes, we bought an ice cream cake and celebrated! I'm better, still swollen, but better and missed all of YOU! I hope everyone is doing well... I will be trying to catch up and visiting you! I really miss all of you! My family just doesn't get it. I try not to talk about all of you anymore. He just gives me that "get a life look". I can't thank you all enough for sharing your world with me and allowing me to share mine~ :D
