Sometimes when a door closes another opens. It took the plumber until about 5pm to get here to fix the problem. I had the water off all day. I was told by the property manager that I can just turn it on until I'm through using the water--who was paying for all that water gushing down the street, I wanted to know. I pleaded with the plumber to come today instead of tomorrow (originally that was the earliest they could come). The lady was so understanding. Anyway, all of this leading to the fact that dinner was not going to happen at home.
So, I took all 4 kids to dinner. By myself. I've never done that before. We had a blast. The kids behaved very well (except for Pumpkin screaming each time she wanted a drink). I've done it without losing my mind or hurting a child's feelings. God surely was watching over us tonight. He knew I could not handle more going wrong today.
