Our 5th Anniversary


It's been quite a week leading up to today. Starting early Wednesday morning, about 3:00 am, I came down with the flu. Rich took the kids to my mom's, then came down with the flu himself at work, so my parents ended up taking the kids to Rich's parents' (because my mom had to work the following morning). Thursday morning Rich felt good enough to go to work and Rich's parents were leaving for a 12 hour drive to see my brother-in-law, so the kids then ended up at Rich's grandma's to give me time to recover. Then, when they all made it back home last night, Rich noticed he left the water on to the cattle ALL day and a couple hours later we didn't have ANY water! This morning things are almost normal....only its 56 degrees in here because we are refusing to turn on our heat until November and my stomach still doesn't feel quite right, but we have water...so far...

So this week hasn't been anything like what we expected, but after 5 years and 2 unexpected little ones (and countless other unexpected things), we've come to expect the unexpected. We may not make it out to our anniversary dinner tonight due to a funky stomach and using up our babysitters already this week, but going out for dinner isn't important. It's the little things that are important....like knowing we're there for each other when we're sick....and laughing about leaving the water on to the cattle just like my grandpa used to do....and cuddling up under blankets and enjoying being cozy because we're being cheap...those are the things that we can enjoy today on our 5th anniversary. Happy Anniversary Rich! I love you!! :-)

* Rich is not dirty in the pic above-it just scanned funny....kinda goes along with our week I guess ;-)

UPDATE: So we really didn't have water this morning, but the well guy already came out and changed the switch, pressure gage and control box on our pump and we're back in business! Thankfully no work needed to be done on the actual well like we were fearing (that would have been even more pricey!)

Happy Anniversary sweetie, you too are just precious and I love the things that have and remind you of your grandpa :).

Glad it was nothing big with the Well. My grandparents estate has a well and I know my dad had so many problems if the toilet was left running etc. Can be a pain ... :)
