Summertime Things

Thursday, July 24th, 2014


Last Friday I turned 30 for the seventh time (don’t ask me how I remember that) and Phil gave me this, a vacuumed living room!

It was a Happy Birthday.


He took me out and gave some other gifties too but I don’t have pictures of all that.


Ephraim gave me this, toddling around in big pink fuzzy slippers.


I’m Okay

I wasn’t going to write about this, I really would just rather forget it ever happened, but I figured I’d let you all know that THIS happened Monday:


I was headed home from grocery shopping in the city. The roads got icy pretty fast. I slid off the highway and slammed into a tree.



After something like this happens you think of all the ways it could have been much worse. I’m so thankful that no one was with me in the van, no one else was around me on the highway, I didn’t go off into one of the many steep ditches on this road, I didn’t flip over (probably due to the tree that stopped me) and of course that I wasn’t hurt.

I did loose 10 of the 24 gallons of milk that were in the back. We really needed that milk….

And now I guess we’re in the market for a new 15 passenger van. I’m hoping for one that isn’t “Kidnapper Van White” but beggars can’t be choosers I suppose.

Yesterday was my birthday.

The Littles gave me some wonderful gifts, a deflated inner tube hat and a curling ribbon hair decoration. And then covered me with “cards”.

Since this week has been pretty busy for us, I took Tuesday “off” and went to the city for some “me time” pretending it was my birthday. But I ended up doing a lot of grocery shopping too so I was really just tired and still “working”….Oh well, anytime I can get out of the house without 3 suitcases of baby stuff and 5 mouths talking or wanting to eat I’m good!

Thursday I had much of the day to myself since my neighbor kindly let the babies come to her house for a while. I got some home improvement projects done, or started at least. There were chocolate cupcakes (another gift from my neighbor) and a delicious glass of wine to end the day, ├ętait super!


Happy Birthday
