Fit "full" Tuesday ...

I'll admit - today was a really tough day. Building a house can be very stressful at times. Today was a culmination of a lot of little things making a BIG thing and I had to seriously fight off a fit of frustration.

The gutters that were supposed to be on yesterday ... aren't. So, all of the rain that we are getting from Ida feels like it is pouring in our house. I know that is an exaggeration, but that is what it feels like. It is worse off than last week before they put the soffit on - now the water has a place to run back on. So, I spent a good part of the day wringing out towels to try to manage the water. Uggghhh!

The HVAC guy that has not returned multiple calls from John. Finally returned my call when I asked his secretary if we needed to find someone else to finish his job. They are supposed to be coming back Monday to finish.

Painting - delayed because of all of the rain. This is very hard for me - setbacks stink. Major setbacks stink majorly.

We received notification that a registered offender will be moving in nearby soon. Seriously bothers me. I know he needs to live somewhere. I know that as God gives us second (and many more) chances, that we should give others second chances, too. I know that, but I still don't like it - for the sake of my children.

Our garbage can that holds the recyclable metals blew over ... twice. Cans were blowing everywhere while I got soaked trying to chase them down, get them contained and secure the big can to the tree so it wouldn't blow over yet again. I'm sure without all of the other mishaps of the day, I would have found it rather funny - imagining how I might have looked.

Hadden is sick. Nothing too bad, but he is running a fever. John doesn't feel well either.

Except for the wringing out of towels, there was no opportunity to exercise. Those of you who know me well know this is bad news for my attitude.

So, I think it is just time for bed. Ready for a new day tomorrow. The rain is supposed to be finished soon.

Lamentations 3:21-23 Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Oh, how I needed this good reminder tonight!


  1. This rain is relentless and we're having flashfloods here. I'm so sorry it's wreaking such havoc for you guys. And that HVAC guy--I hate it when people don't return calls! Don't they want your business?

    Well, I hope tomorrow is a much better day for ALL of you!

  2. I'm sorry, girl! Sometimes when it rains, it pours...(no pun intended...) I pray that tomorrow is a serendipitous day for you!
