The past couple of weeks have been...
less than stellar. I'm not one for negative rant posts, but lately it seems like one thing has been happening after another. As my friend Emily says, "when it rains, it pours." Luckily nothing seriously bad has been happening over then past couple of weeks, just enough little unpleasant things that have made January and Feburary seem long.
In January, someone hit our car in the parking lot. The bright side is the guy who hit us was stellar and told the leasing office that he hit our car and his insurance covered the total cost of repair. We got to drive a 2008 Ford Edge which made me feel powerful for a week (though I very greatly dislike SUVs) Poor Steve had to spend a day calling insurance companies, car shops and rental places.
We've had 2 sick bugs hit us in 3 weeks. Just me and Joshua, the first time the flu, the second time a really bad cold. Luckily Steve and Whitney have stayed healthy. But Steve had to take a day off school (aka working on the diss) to take care of us. The next day was Valentine's day. We find out we have a flat 10 minutes before I had a meeting at Joshua's preschool. Steve changed the flat (with our spare which ended up being flat too) and missed another day working on the diss to get our car functioning again. Luckily my friend Emily and Amy were able to get us to preschool and back so the kids could go to their Valentine's Day party and I could go to the meeting. Phew!
Church was cancelled today because of snow and ice, so once again we're all stuck inside. I think we're going to go crazy soon!
Well if good things can't happen to us right now, at least they're happening to other people. My sister had her baby on Friday February 15th and Joshua's preschool teacher (probably one of the best people I know) found out she's having twins! Yay!
Here are some pictures of the kid's Valentine's day. Whitney loved every one of her Valentines. Joshua was still pretty sick (I probably shouldn't of sent him to school but he had been home all day for 2 days and missed a couple of days of school when he had the flu a week and a half earlier). He looks still pretty miserable.
So bring on March! We're ready to be done with January and February. Emily also says the bad things happen before the good, so let's hope she's right!
