one of those weeks

Have you ever had one of those weeks and you are just not sure how you ever made it through?

I feel like I have been hangin' on by a thread for a few months now...my projects are piling up, my emails are going unanswered, my friends have not been called back, my kids are not wearing anything that remotely goes together, my thank you s are all over the place, my christmas trees are still up, stockings are still hung by the staircase with care.

This week, ugh....it has been -16 to about 20 most of the week...really unfun. My pipes burst in my house...water everywhere, then no hot water because I had to turn off the hot water to prevent it from continuing to spew forth into my house. I fell down the basement steps and nearly killed myself, the sump pump was not working, the hose that goes into the basement wall to take the sump pump water out of the house flew outta the wall and hit me in the face,,loved that. So, I have been washing dishes by hand after boiling the water to get it hot. I guess I should just be happy I am not actually melting snow to get water. I really need a shower.

The house was not able to keep up with the frigid temps, so for a few days it was 51* in the house...ick and cold.

To top it all off, John has been in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico this week whilst I run the show.

Then today, I got a call and our condo is flooded, somewhere in the bldg is a broken pipe. The fun never ends. So the condo is flooded...you know put in brand new carpet and this begs to happen.

My favorite thing this week was taking silly Sally out...she for some reason will only poop on a tie out........so........when it is really cold the clippy deal freezes shut, so to remedy the situation.....get a really long extension cord and use the hairdryer, put the clippy in your pocket to keep it warm while someone else brings out the spastic pup, hook her up, give her 3 mins, bring the hairdryer back out and unleash the beast...so not really fun..and Sally is nutso ...ugh..not fun.

Jess: I am sure that by now, with hubby home, you are having better times. It just seems that life is like this, smooth sailing for a little while and then....all hell breaks loose. Hope you are not all bruised up.
