This And That

I know I have not been good at keep this updated but we have been busy. Not by plan but hey it does happen.
We went to my wife's aunt and uncles to meet her parents and visit them and while we were there her uncle was working on a small plumbing project so I volunteered to help. Well what started out to be a small project kept growing and growing until we nearly replaced all the plumbing in the whole house.
But as he said the original main part of that house had been built in the late 1800's and who knows when it was plumbed the first time. It was one of those deals where it was cheaper to replace it then to spend the money trying to fix each individual leak and there was a lot of them.
We got home from that and had about a week here at home and then her sister called and it was not good. My wife's mother was having some tests done at the hospital and while they were waiting on her to get them done My wife's dad who has very bad diabetes went into insulin shock which also started working on his heart condition so he was in the emergency room with that and mean while her mother was reacting to some of the meds the doctors gave her for the tests. So they both ended up being admitted to the hospital and we were on our way driving for 8 hours to get there.
Well by the time we got there they were both home and seemed to be fine which is good. So while we were there I ended up doing some tree trimming and some other small projects for them on their small farm.
One nice thing about being unemployed is hey honey we need to stay another day. No problem!

It is what it is

Guess it's true...when it rains, it pours! Glad everything is working out OK!

Nice to see you again, my friend!

Yes like Hermit says, when it rains it pours. Seems like trouble never comes alone. Glad things are going better.
Will you be going to school?

Rod said...

Yes it does seem like that sometimes. But hey at least all has turned out ok so far.

As far as school goes I am having to deal with the government on that and we all know how that works out.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hang in there Rod. You're a good man. Things will always happen. It's how you respond to them that really matters.


Rod said...

Yes I am learning that. It is the response thing that is hard.
Thanks for stopping by.
