Do Over

Have you ever had one of those days you just want to re-do? Can I get a start over card?
Yeah, yesterday was one of those days for me.Well most of it, there were highlights in amongst the low points. 
Our dog was sick, so the crate needed some major cleaning. Ick. 
Thankfully my son took care of it without complaining!
Our dishwasher has gone kaput. So we are now washing by hand every day. 
Thankfully my husband thinks he knows the problem and will give it a try to fix it.
And I ruined our computer yesterday. It sometimes just turns itself off in the middle of me working. grr. So this time, I thought aha, I see something that says Recovery F10. So I hit it. Augh,. I wish I could go back and do that over! I would NOT hit that button. It basically erased everything. Everything! All my bookmarks, my beloved pages I go to at the click of a button - gone. All my documents - gone. All my photos - gone.
Thankfully, we have backup! Thankfully my photos are on picasa. Thankfully I have an external drive with all my documents. Now to just figure out how to get them back.

Since we've been studying the book of James, I've noticed the lesson from the previous week usually pops up the next week. We studied trials and stress prior to this week. haha. Guess what. I had a real-life lesson in dealing with it?
Yesterday we studied cynicism. Oh boy, what am I going to deal with next week?

I just had to show you what my girls took care of yesterday.
We went out to the farm for a few hours, and when we got home I asked them to clean and vacuum out the pickup. (It is on our summer to-do list.) So they took everything out, thus the pile you see. And cleaned it sooo nicely. And only put back in the carseat and a couple of items that belong. 
So that it one part of the day I would definitely not 'do-over'!

  1. Oh, since they did such a nice job on your pickup - maybe I should bring over the old van that made journeys to the farm and is coated in dust inside and out plus lots of junk Ed just couldn't part with on any day!!! Oh, I dread doing that job, but I hope to start in soon.
