Car Accident, Shoulder Surgery, and Water Leak

Wow! It has been an interesting week for us! Last week JM was rear-ended in our new car. It was not very bad, but it has been a pain getting our car to the shop and dealing with the insurance company and rental car. We should have our black beauty back Monday or Tuesday...hopefully!

Then, later in the week, JM dislocated his shoulder while golfing. He slipped down a muddy hill and his shoulder was pulled out of socket as he tried to catch his fall with his arm. Poor guy! You know him...he is a very smooth-sailing, nothing-really-bothers-me kind of guy...it has been a little unnerving seeing him in pain and out of sorts. He has surgery on Thursday. The doc says he should be good as new after a 6 month recovery. When the doc was saying that, all I heard was, "your sweet wife will be bathing you, taking over your chores, and will be mowing the lawn for the next six months..." Ha ha. Just teasing. Mostly.


I scrubbed the heck out of these, his favorite shorts, to get the mud out!

Then, as discovered while doing laundry, somehow the upstairs laundry room is leaking water into the downstairs thru the floor/ceiling. Luckily, the space below the laundry room is the garage...so the water damage wasn't as bad as it could have been. I was lucky enough to be taking the trash out (through the garage) at just the right time to see a small stream of water coming down from overhead in the garage and turned the water off right away. Warranty plumbers made a service call and said they couldnt find a leak...after tearing a square of drywall out of the garage ceiling. So, I must be nuts and must have imagined the leaking water and drywall damage I found that day! Right! So, I am on the watch for a leaky washing machine every load from now on I guess. Nice!

Despite these three little mishaps this week, JM and I are doing well and Heavenly Father always blesses us so much! Everything could have been way worse!! I suppose it is fun to have a little excitement going on. Just wish this kind of excitement didn't cost so much! PB&J's for a while!
