Today is Labor Day and well we are laboring! We started out this morning at 7am with our daughter letting us know that there is a leak from the ceiling into our bathroom downstairs. Neither Chad nor I wanted to get up but felt it was probably a necessity....it was. Downstairs the water was all over in our pantry and bathroom and headed for the laundry room. Upstairs the toilet had been plugged and then flushed, but it did not overflow then....no no it waited until the middle of the night when no one can catch it so we woke up to our lovely mess! Chad is now cutting the huge pile of firewood in our front yard and then he will split it for the upcoming winter. Luckily for us we have an overzealous friend who felt like killing time by cutting the trees down and hauling them over to our house!
I have been working on cleaning the upstairs and sorting through all the clothes that the kids have outgrown. The problem is that they keep growing and that means more clothes to go through! We have also been trying to go through piles and get rid of all the clutter. It is a slow process, but hopefully we can find a place for everything so that it does not build up again. Hopefully we can have everything ready before the new little one arrives!
Chad went halibut fishing on Friday and was able to bring home about 17lbs of meat, which is good, because right now halibut is about $17/lb. so we were able to save a lot of money! It was the most interesting halibut adventure he had ever been on. It was a beautiful day and I think that he had a great time despite some of the crazy mishaps that they went through. That though is his story to tell so you will have to ask him if you want all the details!
