Whatever can go wrong, least in our house

Okay, so this has turned into one stellar week (please repeat that in your most sarcastic tone). Let's recap, shall we? On Monday, we (Burge, me and both kids) dropped his car off at the body shop for it to be fixed from the U-Haul hitting him in a parking lot, while he sat in it. Then we go to pick up his complimentary rental car. Sounds simple enough, right? Not for us. We sat at Enterprise for 2 hours. Or rather, Burge stood inside Enterprise, while I sat in the car with the kids. To their credit, the kids handled the first hour pretty well. It was hour 2 when everything started to fall apart. There were tears shed, and the kids weren't very happy either.

Then Monday night, either a small tornado or some very particular wind knocked our front porch off its foundation. Just a word of advice, if you come by my house, don't tarry too long on the front porch. We're not really sure how stable it is, and trust me, we don't need any other injuries on our shoulders.

Next, our phone and internet were off for 2 days, and it almost took an act of Congress or some well-placed threats to get it back on. Enough said about that...

So today, Abby had to have 2 teeth filled, and Grayson had to come along for the ride. It did not go well. Not that I thought it would. I don't like the thought of needles and drills anywhere near my mouth. Why should Abby be any different? So, let me paint you a picture of how I spent my morning. I was in a cell, I mean room, that measured about 5 feet x 5 feet with a hysterical 4 year old and a very sleepy 9 month old. In other words, my own personal hell. Abby got pretty upset when they came in to give her the shots. I got her calmed down in the hour that we had to wait for the actual fillings. But then when the drill was whipped out, all bets were off. I have honestly never heard her holler like that. And of course, no one hollers alone when Grayson is around. So, it was like stereo. It's a safe bet that everyone in that office was glad to see us go.

And to really knock this day out of the park, the air conditioner went out in my car this morning. I mean, seriously...way to kick me while I'm down.

I won't even get into the 2+ hours we spent tonight getting our church directory pictures made.
