Today is going to be better. Thanks so much for all the prayers yesterday, I feel like I am hanging over today from the stress. I so appreciate all of your support!
I am just doing a quick post before the kiddos wake up. Just wanted to say goodbye to this,
and hello to this.
This post has nothing to do with the "unbloggable" from yesterday. This is just a preventative thing since Akila keeps grabbing knives when she is mad and threatening us or the kids(or others). I asked Imani and Hezekiah what all they thought should be in it yesterday and Imani said the butter knives should be also. I'm not sure. I have to draw the line somewhere. I think a fork would be more damaging than a butter knife.
I went through my utensil drawer and took out the meat tenderizer also and a few other things. I also asked Akila what I should put in it, and she tole me all scissors, and spoons. Not sure why spoons, but scissors is a good idea.
I doubt that most people (who have not had to do this), realize what a hassle it is to lock things up. A quick grabbing a knife to cut an apple, turns into a bit more of a project. And then, I realized that when we do use a knife, we need to be careful to wash it right away and get it back in the lock box and not leave it laying on the counter or in the sink.
I bought an extra one for other items we need to lock up, and in a week or two when we have more money, I would like to buy one for each of the kids to keep their "precious" things in.
I forgot to mention the fun plumbing week we have had. Monday, the overflowing toilet which I was not able to plunge and get cleared up. Thankfully, Michael was able to when he got home. Tuesday, had a basement full of water. Hot water heater broke. Got a new one yesterday, nearly $1,000. And we are also going to get an estimate in a few weeks for a new furnace, ours is on it's last leg. It is full of asbestos and it will not be cheap. It never ends.
Not Gonna Let it Happen
