When it rains it pours

Do you ever just feel completely you just can't seem to catch a break?? Well lately the Spengel household has been feeling that way!!!

Just like most of America's population, Tim's business has really been hit hard with this "recession". People just simply aren't buying new homes or they can't get financing.  So we're in crunch mode now and just saying our prayers that God will take care of it. That being seems like whenever things are tight some major appliance will have an issue!! A couple of weeks ago it was our septic system and last night it was our hot water heater!!!

I came home from work and washed my hands, noticing that the water was ice cold. Normally it's scolding hot. Long story short, Tim checked it and called the plumber. Basically it boils down to either the heating element needs to be replaced (not too bad) or the WHOLE heater. Spec-friggin-tacular!!!

At this point it was 8:30 and we had ice cold water, so a bath for John was out. We just  washed his hands, face and feet and off to bed. Poor Timmy had been sweating in the attic, fooling around with the water heater so he desperately needed a shower. That's right...a nice COLD shower!!! It was probably the quickest shower in the history of showers.


We really DO have so much to be thankful for so please don't take this as I'm being ungrateful. Sometimes it's just nice to get it off your shoulders!!
