Work, Dishwashers, and Other Stuff...

Hello dear friends. I am still here. Things have been very busy around here and I have been meaning to post many times in the past few weeks. In fact, everyday I write "post on blog" on my to do list for the day. But for completely obvious reasons, other things take precedent. However, I am back for the time being.

The last few weeks have been very busy. The week before last, I had a very large project for my job with our church. I coordinated about 50 to work on 4 different community service projects for 2 days. Needless to say, it was completed without a hitch and a great relief to me.

This past week has not been good on our utilities. This past week, my our dishwasher began smoking one night when I turned it on. My DH put in a new dishwasher for me and I am very happy with it. It holds about twice as much as my previous one did so, I am only have to run the dishwasher half as much. I will have to post pictures of it soon. Today, right before lunch my DH and I noticed that the house was very warm. When my DH went to turn down the thermostat, he realized that the AC was not working at all. So, being that we live in Texas and it is hot as anything, we decided to spend our afternoon out and about because we couldn't bear the thought of sitting in the hot house all day. Tomorrow the AC repair man is coming to see what is wrong with it. Hopefully he will be able to fix it very quickly.

On a positive note though, I am getting to go home (to Florida) for a visit on Friday. My mom, sister, and I are having a girls' weekend while attending the Deeper Still Conference. I am really excited about the weekend and getting to see my family. I still have to pack, but I am going to try to travel lite. We'll see how far that ambition goes.

I hope that you have a blessed Monday!
