The Broken Phone, The Aquarium, and the Cat
As you can see in this picture, when it comes to my husband, I have no room for complaints. The man is clearly dressed to work. Meanwhile, he’s also wearing a kitchen towel on his shoulder. He’s trim and fit, helpful, kind, funny, and a wonderful Christian example for all.
My grandfather gave me only one piece of advice my whole life: “April, never marry a man who doesn’t work.” Good advice.
Alan does work hard. I wouldn’t even mention this at all. O wait. I mentioned it on both of my last blog posts.
The Mommy Reality Challenge this week is “What’s broken?” I’m co-hosting this week, so I can’t just not participate, and there is ONE thing around here that is very much broken.
Not Caleb’s teeth anymore! Those were fixed up quite nicely. So that just leaves my smart phone. 🙁
Alan broke my phone. Was it his fault? Not really. He borrowed it, and it stopped working. Now I’m sad.
Do you know what else is broken?
Joshua. His face became so swollen by poison oak today that we had to take him BACK to the doctor. She gave us a fresh, 15 day supply of steroids. Hopefully, we can still enjoy our upcoming vacation!
But do you know what is not broken?
Everything else. We have a great life. I feel guilty even complaining about the phone thing. So what if I don’t have good internet access on my phone right now? So what if I am not very good at working this old phone from the Stone Ages. 😉 (2012. It’s from 2012. It’s important to play up the drama so that Alan will help me get a new phone.) Does anyone have a recent phone they’d like to sell me that’s more like from 2014?
I can’t say all of my kids are exactly healthy right now, but I will say that they are all happy. Praise the Lord.
Here are a few more photos of the great time we had at the aquarium last week…..before Alan broke my phone and before Joshua rolled in the poison oak:
And one last funny……Only in California, will you run into CVS and be greeted by this:
Apparently this cat also has his own Facebook page. Sorry, I don’t know the name of it.
Gotta love California. 😉
Hope you all have a great weekend!
