So since I am a day late, and probably at least a dollar short, I am going to try to make this quick.
Monday I worked to make up for a day I took off to go to Cali ... that night Dad and I took Grandpa to see Ephraim's Rescue and loved it!
Tuesday afternoon I went visiting teaching.
On Wednesday I worked, and Emily was to watch grandpa, as I needed to use our monthly grocery coupon worth 10% off that expired the next day and Dad was in charge of doing the blood bank that night. Yep, just another fun High Council assignment.
Ashley called and needed someone to watch Zach that night, so Dad picked him up on his way home from work, then took him to Emily's, where he played with Beckie, shown above. After shopping I came and picked up Zach and took him home and when Ashley came to get him later we got a chance to visit, which was a lot of fun!
I worked as usual on Thursday, and had planned to make a pennant banner that I was making for a commission while there. But after getting the letters glittered, I realize they were too big for the pennants I had printed off. Ooops. That night Dad and I watched The Time Traveler's Wife, which was fun and relaxing.
The next day I spent working on the banner and catching up on some house work. Did you know that I love to sweep up glitter?
After Dad got home, we headed up to the park where we stood in line for almost two hours at the Salmon Supper. The Kews met us about halfway through the line waiting, and we met a cute couple who we visited with most of the time. The new bride, married May 18th, is already expecting, and the husband is applying for med school. The wife is getting her degree in Public Health at BYU, the same degree that Brittney is getting, which was kind of fun. She said she didn't know Brittney, but would look for her in the future.
And while I was off having fun with Eva, Dad was at home finally getting to the root of the leak in the main floor bathroom ... was it Dad's new toilet reset? NO! Was it the original plumbing installed in 1894? NO! was it the remodeled plumbing put in during the 1930's when the back service staircase was taken out and a bathroom was added on each floor in what had been the stair well? NO! It was the plumbing put in by Robert's Mechanical in 1998, when we added a bathtub to the upstairs bathroom ... how sad is that?!
Well, congrats to Dad for getting to the root of the problem, unfortunately he had to make Swiss cheese of his new ceiling in our recently remodeled main floor bathroom ... and then he had to go on to get rid of the indoor swimming pool the whole mess had made in Spencer and Brittney's soon to be apartment. At least our renter had moved out before it happened, so we had no liability that way ... awe the silver linings.
