File under: Things I Never Thought I Would Say

"Elisabeth, do not pour water on the floor and lick it up."

Do unto others...

In the spirit of Christ's admonition that I am working with vigor at teaching my youngun's, I must remove the word verification. I just attempted to leave a comment on a friend's blog, and found myself saying, "I hate these stupid word verification thingies! Don't they know I'm dyslexic???" Then I remembered that I had installed that very same thing in my own blog to get rid of the spammers. So I will bear the burden of those pesky comments. Don't think I'm moderating comments because anyone was naughty.

To those of you who check in to see if I'm still alive...

Thank you! I am and so glad of it! I've been putting my home back in order from traveling, which always take way more time than I think it should. The kids has lots of fun, but they are very happy to be back.

When we walked in the door on Tuesday, we immediately noticed a propain smell all over the house. We searched high and low, but didn't find anything, and found out the next day what had happened while we were gone. Our apartment could easily have been blown into the stratosphere on Sunday. (Last Sunday) The regulator was broken on the gas tank outside our window. It was overfilled and then during the night it forced propain into all the apartments. Our neighbors noticed the smell in their homes on Sunday before church and turned their stoves off, but it was pouring out in our apartment, and we weren't there. That night, someone realized that they needed to go into our place and turn off the stove. It was bad in there. One spark, and the whole thing would have gone, along with the tank. They opened the windows to air it out, but it needed another day of airing before it was livable. We are thanking the Lord for His protection of the families here and of our home!

We've been all over California during the past two weeks, and was it ever a blast! We visited grandparents and several churches along the way, and we are back. I've got stuff to blog, which I will do when I get the chance. Knowing me-I may be able to get it in before the month is over.

Sure is good to be home!
