At least we HAVE water….. right?

That’s what I’m supposed to say, or at least think right? When something bad happens you’re supposed to count your blessings instead of focus on the what’s going wrong…

So over 1/2 the light bulbs in my house have blown in the past two weeks….

at least we have electricity so that when we DO get light bulbs they will work… and I could always use my oil lamps… maybe hubby wasn’t being silly when he bought eight of them one year at a flea market.

So the fluorescent light in the bathroom totally went out three days before Christmas…

at least the girls have become terribly proficient at peeing in the dark! (a skill they may need later in life)

So hubby’s car need $1400.00 worth of work done AND four new tires and STILL didn’t pass inspection…..

at least we have my car that he can drive in the meantime and family to help front the bill till after Christmas and friends who can replace brake pads so that it WILL eventually pass inspection….

So hubby so kindly cleaned the deep freezer but forgot to plug it back in and we lost $500 worth of food…

at least we were blessed enough to have so much food we needed a deep freezer…

So what the hot water heater is shot and flooded our basement….

at least we still HAVE water,
and without being able to bathe I won’t have to fuss at the girls for using all my fancy soap to make a bubble bath,
and at least we have a Pastor who used to be a plumber for 12 years and has all the tools needed to install it correctly,
and…

at least hubby was TRYING to take down the Christmas lights, so we don’t look like rednecks again this year. (He was putting Baby Jesus back in the basement when he couldn’t help but notice the water running out from under the basement door. )

I’m trying, honestly I am… but I’m cranky today, having caffeine withdrawals, and Christmas cookie withdrawals, and cold and a warm bath would be lovely…so would a cup of coffee… and my wonderful nap was interrupted by dear hubby yelling at ‘a certain home improvement store’ on line at how terrible their navigation was… UGH…

Maybe I’ll cowboy up and just put on a big pot of water… shouldn’t take more than five or six to get a good bath made…I could be sitting in warm bubbles in, ohhhh I don’t know, an hour? 🙂

Happy New Year Everyone…
