We're nearing the end of a study at church on our attitudes (mostly the sin of negative and complaining attitudes). The first week and this week of the study seems to have been the most challenging.
- We lost phone/internet due to construction stuff in our area for almost 12 hours...again.
- Some friends of ours are facing some really tough stuff right now, and there's not much we can do but listen and pray.
- They're surveying for the road, and we now have stakes up through the middle of our yard. Grumpy me actually pulled one up out of the middle of our driveway so I could go to the grocery store. We've yet to hear from one official person about easements, right of way, payment, etc. They just showed up this morning and started staking up half our front yard and a good chunk out of the far corner.
- I'm not feeling great again.
So in the midst of all my grumpiness and negative mindset, I am trying to count my blessings (we're getting a paved road, I got a lot of work done yesterday, it's only sinus mess not hives this times) but it's been a constant struggle all.day.long.
So if I don't get around to posting the rest of this week, know our internet connection is probably cut up or dug up or blown up or washed out or one of the other crazy scenarios that can happen when new turn lanes, sidewalks, two schools and two red lights are being put up withing a 5 mile radius of your house.
