When it rains....

You know the rest. It pours. But it isn't particular. It pours good stuff and bad stuff, this thing called life! This has been a week like that. Not totally bad, but somewhat inconvenient. Still, there are so many blessings to count! I really can't complain too much.

Schoolwork is going well as far as I can tell, but i do need to keep a closer eye on the algebra and research paper the 9th grader is working on. My oldest girl is about to turn 13 tomorrow, and so far we haven't been able to get her a gift, though she is having a party. She is such a joy. She's quite private but has lots of very sweet Christ- focused friends. I couldn't ask for better.

No gift yet because the water heater is acting up (not heating for long) and that is causing the 7 of us to rotate showers and not take one every day. And today the fridge went out. Waiting to hear from the home warranty company about repairs. All food is in coolers on ice. Luckily we have a deep freeze and it barely held the frozen items, and they were just starting to thaw so all was saved there. Repairs come before gifts.

Actually the repairs are kind of like a gift. Just not to a 13 year old. She is very understanding though.
Also began looking at donating our clothing abundance to needy people who have been dropping by the church. Got a lot of stuff up there so far and we aren't hurting.

And I started my wish list for next year's curriculum purchases. That will wait until July. Never hurts to plan ahead though. So, the week has been good and inconvenient. Such is life. but the blessings far, far outweigh the troubles so we are good here. Lots of great folks willing to help out.

Hope your week is going well. I have to go check on some homemade jelly filled granola bars. (Sherlock reference)
