When it rains...

Last night, our garage door opener stopped working. Dave stayed home from his conference today to fix it (he would have no other time until Sunday afternoon). When he looked at it, he noticed that the gear had literally been ground down. Essentially, since the thing was 16 years old, it probably just needed to be replaced. So, he went out and bought a new one. When he came back, my friend Leah, who was coming over noticed that one of his tires was flat. When he went out to look, he came in and announced that he needed 4 new tires. We knew they were bad, but they are REALLY bad...threadbare bad. Anyway, so that's going to be done today as well. His heater stopped working for the garage, but he managed to get that fixed.

He spent all day installing the garage door opener and getting his tires replaced. Quite the day.

My friend Jen came over in the afternoon. We hung out and watched a movie. Both my kids are sick and running fevers. Since we have had late nights the last two nights, they were both peacefully in bed at 6:45pm tonight. Hello 5am. They need their rest though, and I am hoping I can push Noah until at least 7 at staying in his room. We'll see if I am lucky at all.

I'm pretty tired today, but I am trying to stay up to watch Bones...and maybe the Office...if I can stay awake that long.

Hope the kiddos are feeling better soon. Both of mine have little colds. I'm trying to teach Josiah to cover his mouth when he luck yet! :-) Get some rest!
