Later that week my friend's daughter flushed one of my decorative balls down the toilet. Its like the size of a golf ball. It wasn't an issue until I tried to flush the toilet later on that day and had the water start flooding. This brought back bad memories of a similar occurrence that happened in McCook, NE. :) I called the plumber, got the water turned off and waited for him to come get the ball out. In the meantime, water had leaked down into our closet downstairs where we're storing some things. I went down to survey the damage and saw a piece of what looked like fecal matter, floating in one of our glasses that was in a box int that closet. Realizing that everything that was wet was infected and had to be bleached or thrown away, I did what any rational person would do, and cried. Knowing Michael wasn't home and I had this huge job ahead of me and no help, I was totally overwhelmed. I later realized it was a piece of brown cardboard floating in that glass and felt better. When Michael came home we cleaned out that closet, got rid of some stuff that needed tossed anyway, and sanitized the floor just in case. That was a bad week. I always remember in the back of my mind that Heavenly Father won't make me go through anything I can't handle. Its still hard, but I know I can do it.
Michael starts his 5th week in Powell next Monday, has 2 more weeks there and then he's in Billings for 6 weeks doing cardiac and orthopedics. I am so relieved he'll be here for a while before his last 3 rotations which are in Casper, Libby, MT and Lovell.
Stetson is in cubscouts now, which means he can't do bball because its the same night, which means Kandace can't either, because we were going to sign her up as well. Stetson's piano lessons are on Saturday now, which is great because I can take him by myself and not with 3 girls in tow. Stetson really likes scouts. He had his first pack mtg last Tue and got his bobcat. I'm excited for him and glad he gets to be involved with scouts.
