Aaaccckkk! I've been missing for 2 weeks. My Mom reminded me of that today. The natives get restless when I haven't blogged in awhile.
But, we've been super busy.
But, here's a pic of Rio looking crazy and cute. Let me tell you, we all just love him to pieces. Emily is his favorite person though. He literally runs to the door to see her when she gets home from school.
And if you want to make my kiddos happy, cinnamon rolls straight out of the oven are their favorite. Nothing fancy, just store brand basic cinnamon rolls. They have simple taste.
And this guy lost his second tooth! He was so exciting. The tooth fairy folded his dollar in a paper airplane, which he thought was super cool.
Then, I went to our garage and noticed a puddle of water by the door. Ugh, the water heater was leaking everywhere. We've been in this house 10 years in June, and that's about their life expectancy. So it died, but left a wake of destruction. The shelf it was on is all dry wall and when it gets wet, it's just like chalk everywhere. It was a mess.
I found a water heater at Home Depot for $600. But they wanted $800 to install it. What? Are they crazy? I called a local plumber, whose total for the heater and install was $1250. Another plumber wanted $850 just to install. I called a few more places and everyone was the same. Are these people nuts? I'm watching guys on youtube talk their was through a demo of changing one out and it takes 24 minutes. So, what in the world, they make $800 an hour? I got in the wrong line of work!
So, when I relayed all this to my Dad in Phoenix, he finished up his golf game and said he'd be up by 1:00. David was able to leave work and finish his day at home, so he could assist and learn. And these two guys got to work. It took them an hour. I was so grateful. I had already heated water on the stove to do dishes that morning. Playing Little House on the Prairie is no fun! I was glad we were up and running in 24 hours. Whew. Thanks, Dad! And my awesome hubby!
Then, that night after all the craziness, I figured we needed to relax at the pool. The weather has been in the low 70's here as a high, so it's gorgeous out right now. So, off we went. The pool is heated.
Then, Aunt Pam sent the kids some nice Valentine treats! She's so sweet. Of course, Rio is into everything and anything. He's not supposed to get on the counters. He doesn't listen well.
And I saw my Mommy today! She had a Doctor appointment up here, so she stopped by for an hour. I should've got our picture, but it was so rushed, I forgot. Next time, I'll make us some cute dogs on Snapchat. But, it was so nice getting a visit from my Dad and my Mom this week.
And that's a summary of our 2 weeks!
Tonight, we are going to a surprise birthday party for a friend. Then, tomorrow, we get to take everything out of the garage and hose it down to clean up from the mess the dry wall made. That should be fun!
