Progress, Regress


J, hard at work

And just a few days later...time for paint and hardware!

I am so thankful that my husband is so handy. And talented. And smart. And artistic. And a lot more stuff too.

Okay, I don't know if these things are exactly regressions, but they really feel like it.
Here's a list of a few things that have come up in the last 36 hours.....

-the garbage disposal quit working

-BB fell out of the cart at Lowe's, landing flat on his back on the cement floor after an almost full rotation in the air (absolutely terrifying, but God protected him and he is completely himself with not even a bump or bruise to show for it.

-Upon arriving home from that Lowe's trip completely stressed and frazzled, the refrigerator had quit working (which it does every year around this time - it was SUPPOSED to have been completely fixed last year) and we had to toss a bunch of food. J got it temporarily working again (Handy Husband strikes again!)

-the laptop is only working when plugged in - the battery isn't charging for some reason

-And then this morning at playgroup I heard about this:
and guess what airline BB and I are flying on Wednesday?
J and I both agree that it will probably be the safest time to fly, since all the planes are getting extra-inspected, but still, it's enough to shake me up a little.

Okay, okay, enough whining. I realize these are mostly luxury items (other than BB's safety and health).
I'm tired tonight.

BB just came over and pointed at my nose and earrings and then climbed on my lap to read a book. I feel better.

Post Script: Since posting this, J has already fixed the garbage disposal AND the laptop. And BB has given us no reason to worry, he remains totally himself. Praise God.


  1. Hang in there beautiful mama!

  2. Scary, about BB falling out of the cart!!

    How did Justin fix the laptop? I think my battery is too far gone, but it's worth a shot :)
