When it Rains it Pours

School Room Bano

And what a difficult week it has been.
Judy was sick. Our gas was off for 3 days. It cost a lot of money to get both fixed. They are both still broken. My car wouldn't start. The electricity went off. I lost our food stamp card and pin together. I am sure i stubbed my toe once or twice.
So we had school this week in our only bathroom. The floor is heated and it was quite cozy.

But i am thankful for a home, generous family, my sister's bathtub, good and caring neighbors, space heaters, electric stoves, food stamps, and Justin's job.

I think of pioneer women when i start to feel overwhelmed. Things can always be better. They can always be worse.
I am just glad i can turn a knob and hot water comes out.
