Hooray for flushing!!

That's all I'm saying about that.

Yes, we are back in our own house with electric and running water. We went to stay with Hubby and family for a while until we could get back to our routine. It was a nice visit. The kiddos had a good time being refugees. LB was happy to go home as long as the TV was working. BB missed a couple wrestling shows because the DVR didn't record. But just like Days of our Lives, he got right back on track watching the next one that played this week. So we are all back into the groove.

It was kinda funny camping out in our own house. I totally feel for those still without power and water. I guess there are still a few in our area. And who knows how many down south who are still struggling. Lord, help us all!

So the kids had a whole week with no school. I don't think they minded. School was closed Mon-Wed and I took them out of town Thur and Fri, so they got another extra vaca. I hope the school didn't decide to do any major grading projects in those last couple of days. I hate playing catch-up with my (yes, MY) schoolwork. I only claim it because it's true. When kids go to school, so do the parents.

Well, today I will be playing catch-up on more fun things like laundry and cleaning. And of course, unpacking. I will also be thanking the good Lord above for those flushing toilets all the while I am scrubbing them. It's the little things, you know?

Did your DVR record Bones Wednesday night?
