Mother’s Day Flood

This is my card from Caleb.  I’ll give you one guess which one is pregnant Mommy……HA!

Joshua made me this vase in Art class.  He did a really great job of painting the flowers on it.  
Happy Mother’s Day to our Wonderful Mothers!!!
Now that’s a happy grandmother right there.  Nonna, holding niece Tori, and grandson Daniel.
  Now I’m sure not any of you that know us think this was an uneventful day.  We have no such thing in this house……ever… seems.
  To begin with, I was getting over my illness, so it was a lazy day at home for me.  The antibiotics have made a big difference already, so I slept the day away, enjoying my new ability to breathe through my nose.
  But this afternoon we made a rather unfortunate discovery……the basement was flooded  AGAIN!!!  Now when I say flooded, I should clarify that only part of the basement was standing in a little water, like 1/2 and inch, just enough to make you groan.  The plumber is here now, working on the problem.  We’re not sure yet what happened, but we should know soon.  No word yet on whether or not this issue was Daniel related.  
  Tomorrow both boys have Field Day, and I plan on going and watching, after my chiropractor appointment.
  Since I’m doing so much better now, my plan for this week is a little thing called Operation Major Recovery.  I PLAN (lol–as if anything around here ever goes as I plan it to) is to fully clean and restore this house from the catastrophe that we call last week.  If I can get each room looking decent, there will be photos, I tell you, because it will be an accomplishment!
  Dan’s accomplishment of the year:  made whoo-whoo stinky on the potty, all by himself.  See, one of our problems with Dan is that he has a need for privacy when making “whoo-whoo”.  And after this year’s plumbing expenses, this is a hard thing to give him!
All of last week’s surgical patients seem to be doing better this week, so praise God for that!
So far all the plumber has been able to find is a flushed wipe– baby or Clorox, we’re not sure.  It seems like an awfully big problem for such a thing.  If that caused the clog, I know who did that–Caleb, not Daniel, and that out of ignorance.
Happy thought for the week:  (I could actually use a bunch of happy thoughts after the week we’ve had….)
“Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.”
Proverbs 16:24
“God gives the lonely a home.  He leads prisoners out with joy, but those who turn against God will live in a dry land.”       Psalm 68:6
“So encourage each other, and give each other strength, just as you are doing now.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11

    Would it be cheaper to rent a Port-A-Potty for the boys under 6 to use? Maybe put Mario stickers on it so they will think it's cool. Just say'in. ~Daddy-O

    “No word yet on whether or not this issue was Daniel related.” So funny!!! Seriously, that is unfortunate. Sounds like all your boys really love their mama! Amy
