things get messed up .......don't they???
Well....this morning started off interesting!! Over the last week or so, I would go into the boys room and smell something. At first I thought it was just boys....you know! I had Terry vacuum under the bunk beds thinking something had fossilized, decomposed or of that sort, but the smell still lingered! Today we have found the problem....we just have window units for air in some of the rooms, water had run out of the window sill, down the wall, onto the carpet and had spread about 5 feet from the wall. It was sopping! A mattress was wet partially as well. A big mess!! Really there is no way to fix this, its just ruined, so Micah and Andrew cut the carpet and took it all out, carpet and pad. I guess picture a square and 1/4 of it is gone....pretty huh???? Oh well, I am sure if Job had messengers telling him his carpet was ruined and also his Bosch Machine bowl was sat on the stove burner while still on and the bottom of it melted, he would have been thrilled verses the message he DID receive. Reality is, this is a "piece of cake" compared to Joel. I would take Joel over a nice house and everything broken any day!! So, I am saying, its all so trite compared to so many facing life threatening diseases and illnesses and so many mothers missing their toddlers because of death, like Meredith, Angie, Katie and her new baby, Jessica Kate, Ashley, Jess, these are a few I pray for every day as they grieve.......
So busy today, Bethany is swamped with getting ready to take the goats up this afternoon. I am trying to do school and then need to prepare our lunch and dinner to take to the show tomorrow. We'll be there all day and on Wednesday as well!!
The baptism went well yesterday in our pond as the church families gathered around. A little cold but it was a wonderful sight! Dave and Kate were with us all day and as always had a great time with them. The "littles" love his adventures, like reading book and stuff!!
So much to do.....better go!!!
