water and sunshine

This last week hasn't been too bad...school went well for the boys...we had it set up on Friday for the boys to ride the bus to daddy's house...they were pretty excited...Michael was a little nervous, but he did OK with it..he has a friend that rides the same bus, she she helped him out...they don't get to do it very often...

This weekend was a bit hairy..lol...i was sick Thursday through Saturday night...a stomach virus..ick...Friday i did some grocery shopping, and Nick called while i was in the back part of Meijer..and most who shop there know, you just don't get a signal in there...it sucks...so i didn't get to talk to him that day...I got home put stuff away, went to take a shower, and no water pressure...kinda strange seems how it was above freezing..so i sent to check and see if the washer was working, and i heard water running in the wall..i went outside to find water coming out of the access door for the crawlspace...i ended up having to call denny to help me, i had no idea how to turn off the main water supply...

it was too late to get it fixed that night, so i had no water...i was sick and needed to be near a bathroom..so i ended up going to a hotel in South Haven...The Ramada...omg, that hotel has the most comfortable beds! i just wish i had felt good enough to really enjoy it..lol but i relaxed, got a good nights sleep...i was nervous staying at a hotel by myself...it was the first time for me...

Saturday Denny came and fixed the pipe for me...thank goodness it was pretty easy...he was very helpful...and i am grateful to him for giving up part of his Saturday with the boys to do it...

last night my mom and aunt Renee took me out for dinner at TGI Friday! wow! they have excellent food there...it was my first time there, and i am in love (hehe sorry Nick)...i didn't stay too late, because my stomach was still bothering me...i came home and went to bed pretty early...i got a pretty decent nights sleep...i woke up nice and refreshed and feeling good today, so i am working on getting caught up on the house...

Picture of me and my mom at TGI Friday!

The weather here has been amazing...we needed this sunshine...yesterday it got up to 52 degrees..it was so nice walking around in just a sweater! today its about 4o...and sunny again...i love it! i needed it so bad!

Nick is doing good...communication is at a low level for us at this point...its close to him leaving Iraq, and they have him on a crazy different schedule...i miss talking to him, but its for a good cause! he is almost done with this deployment! woohooo!!!!! happy dance! He will have to be in Hawaii for a while before he comes home, but im not complaining! i get to see him again soon...im so happy about it all...its time for us now..something we have been waiting for...

It sounds like you had a crazy weekend! I so understand needing to be near a bathroom with that awful stuff going around, and I'm sorry you didn't get to go to the hotel to enjoy...but to be near the bathroom. Ugghh!

Have a great week, and enjoy the sunshine! Did you see the weather Tuesday?? 50! :) Michigan is such a tease!

Yey for the good weather. We had some too....even though we didn't get the snow stuff...we did get the cold and rainy stuff. So being cooped up wasn't doing our mental health any good. This weekend we pulled down the bikes...and the kids and their dad even slept in the tent in the back yard. Woot.

Did your pipes freeze and burst during the cold weather? Rhi's did. Glad you got it fixed and are feeling better now!
