What's going on..

The Bean and I had a wonderful visit with Aunt K.C. and the crew. What fun it is to see Bean and her cousins having a grand time with each other. Every time we get together - the girls just enjoy each other so much. Bean got to jump at the jumpy place at the mall, go to Chick-fil-A, eat cinnamon pretzels (her favorite), have icee, go back to the jumpy place (twice more), go to Krispy Cream, play outside, and shop....I am tired just thinking about all that now. Of course this was spread out over several days ;)

My sister, her friend Melissa and I got to have a girls night and went to have Ice Cream. The Ice Cream staff told us if we sang karaoke we would get free ice cream. Well you know I am all about scoring the deal...so we sang (what I thought was a short song) It's my party! The ice cream staff loved us and asked us to come back next week. HA! I was in the band and there is a reason I don't sing so much in public, although I think I can carry a tune decently. We saw a movie called Miss Pettigrew Lives for A Day...nice period piece with Amy Adams in it. What a fun night we had.

On our way out of town, we got to visit with Aunt Ash and Tom. We also got to hang out with Bean's Mimi and Poppy and Nana and Gramps. Bean is so blessed and loved my all her grandparents.

Today - Reality is back and we need your prayers. Our AC unit has exceeded it's life expectancy and needs to be replaced. I have had a service tech and engineer here at the house today and it looks like everything needs to be replaced. As you may imagine this is a huge expense and we are still recovering from all the IVF expenses.
Also our dryer has decided to make some awful noises like it is taking off to Mars...I don't think we enrolled the dryer in the astronaut program..so I imagine that our dryer is going out too ;(
Please keep us in your prayers! Tomorrow is my IVF follow up with the fertility doctor....I will keep ya posted.

I am glad you got to get away for the weekend and have fun. Sorry about your AC. I will be praying about tomorrow. PLEASE call and tell me how it goes.

I have a 30 year old dryer that has been making dreadful sounds now for some time. It has not taken off on it's own yet. It did need a belt, but that was all.

Having to replace the AC is necessary no matter what. There is no way you can live in Texas without AC. However funding it is not so nice. There goes the rebate checks.

Good luck with the doctor tomorrow. You just wonder what he can say or do, don't you?

Glad you had a nice visit in Austin. I am sure KC appreciated the time out as much as you did. I am guessing the dad's had their hands full at home.
