Raining Cats and Dogs


When it rains it pours...literally.

We have been having some pretty bad storms in central TX the past couple weeks...I've been holding my breath hoping that our roof would stay strong (we live in an older house and it's just a matter of time before having to get a new roof)....we were kinda hoping that we could buy time until we move, however thanks to this lovely storm we had today we will probably be getting a new roof...SOON.

I hate to admit this next part, but due to being so extremely busy my house has been a disaster, laundry was piling up and things weren't getting done. I am adjusting to my new work hours and trying to do all of my normal routine cleaning, however there was so much that I was lacking...so I was beyond thrilled when my new bosses cleaning lady offered to clean my entire house and do my laundry for really cheap. I initially turned her down because I've always done things myself, but thought I could give it a shot since it was so cheap and maybe it would help me out...I know look at it as a blessing in disguise.

About an hour after being here she called me in panic to tell me my roof in my kitchen was leaking and water was 'pouring' in... (this is about the time I had a mini heart attack)...I quickly explained the situation to my boss and ran out the door to come home, thankfully she was exaggerating a bit as it wasn't 'pouring' in, but it was def. a consistent drip (I can only imagine all the water that would have been in my house if it wasn't for her calling me and placing a bucket under the leak!) I am also very thankful that my insurance agent is as amazing as he is because I called him and he came over within 10 minutes to look at it with me...thankfully this kind of stuff is covered under my home owners insurance...

This wasn't how I planned my Wednesday to go...but thankfully I've had help throughout this crazy crazy day!!

P.S. thank you to everyone who has emailed me about my cousin and their babies, they are doing amazing. Cullen is off of his C-Pap (which is amazing) and Presley is doing great...for being so early and so tiny they are proving to be so very strong! My cousin and his sweet wife are doing great as well...thanks again for continuing to check on them and pray for them! I really appreciate it. :)

We discovered a leak in our house today, too. I love the storms but darn that winds that helps the water find its way in! Hope you get the roof fixed soon!
