Fish and Roses

Yesterday we had planned to go to some friends house to grill out with the family and I was so excited at the opportunity to get out of the house for a little bit. About 20 minutes before we were going to leave, M comes running into my bedroom where I was getting ready and yells, "K threw up, K threw up!" She is definitely not good under pressure or in an emergency situation...she panics. I found K sitting, very confused, on the sofa covered in vomit. ALL over the couch too! Yuck!

Needless to say, our plans for last night and our plans for the entire weekend were cancelled immediately. I have spent the last 24 hours taking care of a sick child, Cloroxing everything, trying to disinfect the house, and cleaning my sofa.

And wouldn't you know something else would go wrong on Friday the 13th (although I'm not superstitious, or anything!), but as I was washing clothes, towels, sheets, etc...My dryer completely stopped working. Ugghhhh.

The sofa cushions have been cleaned with soap and water, then vinegar and water and stayed outside overnight. I then sprayed them with Lysol and let them sit in the sun for a while this afternoon. I finally brought them back in a little while ago and I can't help but think "fish and roses"...I know it's clean, but I can't quite rid my mind of the smell.

T and I have been planning on putting our stimulus check back, but now I'm thinking we need to use it to buy a new dryer and a new sofa! Doesn't this kind of thing always happen? You earn an extra $100 that week, but then a bill comes for $150 the next day?

The Lord does provide though. He really does. He always meets our needs and I am VERY thankful for that!
