What a week!

leaking roof
two house showings with positive reaction
then nothing for two days
my mother and brother visited for second time this year
another showing scheduled
flies took over the kitchen
basement filled with water
95 degrees, no car and forced to leave with the girls at lunchtime
yummy broiled fish sandwich at local restaurant i'd never do on my own thanks to so many anti-stroller establishments
seeing my girls learn that being silly gets them attention
seeing red after learning the showing never happened AFTER returning hot, sweaty and miserable from 1.5 hours out of the house
seeing more red as more flies hovered in the kitchen
feeling happy to learn the sewage backup was an easy fix, and wasn't too much of a mess
hoping the flies were a result of the backup, and will never return
The Da! and I got out for a date of miniature golf and Italian ice for $10
wondering how the girls will feel when it's just us again, no visitors.

Well, congrats on getting out of the house with the hubby, anyway. I hope next week will be better! No flies, yuck.

Whew! A little busy, are you? Glad that you are going out for a date -- sounds like you need it!

We had a fly infestation once at a really bad time in my own life. It was horrible and creepy... Hope they are gone from your life soon!

Hang in there.
And I hope when this is all done you all take a very long nap and then wake up and go out for ice cream.

Mom and Brother had a wonderful visit
Loved every minute while there.
Can't believe how much they have grown.
Turning into two lovely, sweet cutie pies.
Yes it was hot, but getting out was fun.
Enjoyed lunch immensely.
Can't believe those 2 days went so fast!
Miss you all VERY VERY much!

I am so glad that you and hubby got to go out due to Mom & Bro. being there to babysit. That was a nice break. Glad you had the repair done in the basement. I am just glad that your Mom got to visit you there. The girls are so sweet. BB
