And now the little stuff...

January 7th, 2008 at 02:16 am

I have a feeling, most folks would condsider backed up plumbing in their entire home (except for toilets) big stuff...but with everything else that has been going on here...I have put it on the 'it can wait' burner. Now that my mom and the hub are both home, it is time to deal with it. So, I see plumbing bills in our future. So hoping that this wont kill the budget for the year...but I guess we will see. We will call the plumber out tomorrow and see if they can send some powerful flush through the pipes and get everything working again. (please!!)

My 2008 Christmas shopping is done for everyone but the babies...I have reserved a great 7 bedroom home at a mountain resort for us to all gather for the week following Christmas. I thought this would be a great year to create a new family tradition...we will see how it goes, but I am soooo excited!!!

I slept 12 hours last night. I was so exhausted. I took it easy today and am returning to work tomorrow. I spent some time today planning a few vacations this year...It is good to have things to look forward to.

I can't thank you all enough for your support these past few weeks. I wished you knew how many wee-hour visits I made to this blog to read and reread your supportive words when my dad was so ill. You will never fully understand the impact you had on my life during those nights. I am forever grateful to you all.

    I am so glad you got some rest! It will probably be relaxing to go to work tomorrow and get away from all the stress at home! Hopefully DH and Nana are doing well and the plumbing, well as long as you can still use the potty....
    The resort sounds fantastic!! What a wonderful to spend the first Christmas w/o Papa. I'm sure he will be smiling down on you and enjoying the celebration of a new tradition. That was good thinking!
    Good luck this week and make sure there is a nice glass of wine and the easy chair waiting for you on Friday!

    What a wonderful Christmas gift to all - family! Plumbing issues are nothing after health issues. Have a good week.

    A good night's sleep is a great start, but remember to take time to grieve. {{{{hugs}}}}
