There's a Wild Turkey Living in My Backyard

8:37 PM

In the past two weeks, things have been crazy around our home.  Our DOG has sprained her ankle; the dog got an earache; our irrigation system stopped working, our refrigerator has leaked, our washing machine has leaked, the weeds kept growing out of control in our backyard, we have a wild turkey living in our backyard, the deer won’t ever stop eating the akuba, we’re potty-training the youngest, the toilet won’t stop running, a light fixture needed rewiring, the dog tore up two more blinds, and on and on and on.

What have I learned from all of these things?  Life never works out as planned.  Dogs need pet insurance, especially ours.  Thank goodness we invested in that home warranty.  Kids will learn to go to the bathroom on their own eventually.

Why am I telling you all of this?  I’m just like you.  I work and don’t have time for all of these things, but I’m going to tackle them.  I will gain control.  I do highly recommend all of you buy that home warranty if it’s not offered to you.  You learn so much about your house in that first year.  In my experience you're going to need a repairman to come fix that broken appliance unless you live in a perfect home.

Your kids are going to be ok.  Trust your gut and stick to it. Don’t give up.  Your children will learn how to go potty.  It's frustrating, but it will work out.

Don’t neglect your pets.  They need attention too.  Our dog is our baby and she's getting old.  It breaks my heart to see her limping... of course she should have known better than to chase a wild turkey into the woods.  She is just a dog though and she has animal instincts!  I should have asked the dog sitter to put her invisible fence collar on though.

Lesson learned.

  1. We had a home warranty when we first moved here and I wish we'd renewed it. Something's always broken on a 30 year old house!


Thank you for your thoughts...
