In the backyard

backyard 005

I'm pretty numb right now and I think it's just a coming down from a couple weeks of high stress which is funny, because during those moments I didn't feel much of anything either, just frustrated I guess, because within one week Jeff's car blew a tire and our oven wasn't working and then our air broke and the sump stopped sumping and the dryer stopped drying. But now all of it is (mostly) fixed and I should be so happy but I feel like I just let out my breath and I'm exhausted and just want to lie down over there in the corner. And now it's spring break.

I still made breaded mushrooms and brownies and a lasagna yesterday and oh my goodness have I missed my oven.

PS something else big going on: tickets are on sale now.

  1. BREADED MUSHROOMS. I am salivating.
    Also, sorry all those things went wrong. :(
    Glad they're all (mostly?) fixed.
    Wishing you lots of rest. And reflection time.

  3. I'm sorry everything breaks at once. I wish I were off work to go somewhere with you guys this week. The zoo would be fun.

  5. I hope you can breath deep and rest now that things are fixed. Those things do a number on me too.

    Happy Sunday, Steph!

  7. That's a lot to have happen in 1 week. The stress of it all happening, scheduling all the appointment, and the cost would throw me over the edge.

  8. Isn't that always how it happens, one things goes wrong and then everything else follows. Well maybe you just got all of it out of the way at once??? Hope you have as relaxing of a spring break as possible with all of the kids home.

  9. I had no idea all of this was going on... I'm so sorry. It always seems like things just avalanche.

  10. I really love those pictures. And I swear there is a rule that everything must go wrong at the same time. Happy spring break at least.
