After the crazy week that I had, it was so nice to have a long weekend to look forward to. Spending time as a family and getting things done around the house, yes you know you’re getting older when you look froward to a long weekend to get stuff done at home 😉
An awesome end to the week, at Camera Club listening to James Cowie speak about Lightroom and Photoshop, it was so amazing to have Friday morning to awake naturally and not to a blaring alarm. Ahhhh so nice, relaxing in bed, the kids playing nicely and I get up to find… we had NO water! Yup thats right NO water. Hello country living… of course I immediately step into panic mode, we had family coming that afternoon for Easter and we have no water. Which means no flushing of toilets, no showering, no water in general!
Thank god it was so nice out on Friday!
Now this is where I have to give my hubby and dad huge huge huge thanks. Hubby got right at it while Dad was out on another call, by 1pm they had our water back on and we have a brand new pump. I can now honestly talk to customers with another personal home heating/plumbing issue… go me! LOL
My boys beginning the process before Dad got here.
This was not the best thing to wake up to and although we got water back on, my body was once again this week having pain issues. I guess its not that bad if I can trade off the horrible pain I was having over a year and a half ago for the pain I do get now, however, with kids and a job and a house with chores it really doesn’t make it any easier. However Ive made a promise to myself to not hold onto any sort of stress and be incredibly thankful, ha at times its thankful that Im here and can be stressed, or that I have gorgeous children who yes at times can be challenging. But its life, its my life and hmmm 8 times out of 10 its amazing 😉 lol Alas we had a great time.
This little guy is a family tradition that begun when I was young. I love that Grama is still doing this, now not just for her grandkids but for her great-grandkids! Our little’s loved it. Lil man was quite excited to eat his face haha.
GORGEOUS day on Saturday… some fun times in the backyard for the littles…
Saturday morning our lil girl woke up and declared… ITS SPRING! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and the grass is peeking out through the snow!
Technology has made some amazing improvements and now we are able to actually “share” the important dates and holidays with our family who are unable to come home (from California – lucky ducks!) for every event.
Cheers to a fabulous weekend and Happy Easter! I truly hope you enjoyed the time with your family and friends – which is what the holiday is exactly about. Appreciating those around you, spending time together, eating, drinking, laughing and having fun!
(p.s. Im trying a new web re-sizing action for my photos and Im not liking it… they certainly are not very sharp…)
