Crazy? Is that where I'm going?

The Little Chef helping Superman

This has been quite a week in our home. I'm sure everyone on the planet has had such a week. This morning topped it off. I actually thought maybe I should cancel school and hide in my room for the rest of the week.

I broke the water pipe that leads to the water main. Then I couldn't figure out where it turned off. I keep digging and digging with avail. Urban Girl came out and tried. A man walking down the the street wanted to know first, if it was our home.--- I am dressed in jean shorts, purple shirt, black (cute) apron, crocs and hair flying everywhere. Children running down the front steps yelling Mom and he wants to know if I own the place! Water gushing all over the back yard and chickens making rafts to save themselves (okay not that bad). So he had no clue how to shut it off.

I go around back thinking there must be another way! Water still spewing everywhere. I then hear car brakes. Ahhhhh..... Superman. Thank you Lord for letting his work be so close and giving him an understanding work place! Within second water is off. I missed finding the valve by an inch!

Me so upset with my self, just wondering what the big guy is going to say. I love him soooooooooo much! He laughed! I cried . He hugged me. We laughed. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Her face just captures how I feel.
He is now installing a safety valve just for me. I love you more than words can say!


P.S. I burned orzo to a crisp then I under cooked the next batch while all this was happening. Bed still looks good.......sigh.......

Oh my! Water gushing out and not being able to control it is not a good thing. At least you had a cute apron on. :)
