One of Those Days..

Ever had one of those days when you think it might have been better just to stay in the bed? We started off the day with a visit from the plumber. Our sink was backed up. Apparently I'd let to much grease get down there. Now I know grease isn't supposed to go down the sink. I don't pour my grease down there, but I guess I need to wipe out my pans a little better before rinsing off the residue.. Meanwhile after the plumber takes care of that he discovers our electrical hub, for lack of a better term, is coming off the roof. (The place where all the wiring comes in the house.. ours is through this pipe looking thing attached to the roof.) We had already planned to go to Sam's club, so we added Lowe's to the list for some roof cement and shank nails.

We get the baby all fed and ready to go, load up in the car, and it won't crank. Just a week ago today the passenger side window fell while driving down the road in 30 degree weather. At this point John and I both were wondering what else could go wrong. After a failed attempt to get it jump started, my father-in-law came over to help us get it started. Once he and John managed to get it running we headed to AutoZone and ended up purchasing a new battery. Between the plumber bill, the part to fix my window, and a new battery, that's a WHOLE lot of scrapping supplies I could have purchased. LOL

On a good note, Natalie sleep 10 hours last night and has taken her naps like a pro today. I think I may have figured out that my caffeine intake could have been the cause of her not sleeping well. It may not have a thing in the world to do with it, but when you're nursing I guess anything you eat or drink could affect the baby.
Here's some pics of her and her animals. Gotta love the pink monkey!Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Oh Leah, HUGS! Jeez when it rains it pours! Natalie is such a little beauty. Her eyes just melt me!

I am sorry you guys are having such bad luck. It will get better just keep going!

I think my caffeine is affecting Nate too. I am really going to watch what I eat these next few days and see if his tummy will get better.

Just stay inside and scrap. It will get better...
