It is not what happens to you that determines how far you will go in life; it is how you handle what happens to you.

Woke up to a flood this morning. I called the office here to request the first available maintenance man and by the time he got to my apartment the toes of his boots were covered with ice cold water. What a mess. I have had dudes walking in and out of my apartment all morning. They sucked up all the water and left me with 5 giant, loud fans and a lovely dehumidifier that seems to be shooting out cold air (not sure if this is normal?!) Anyway, they said to leave them plugged in for a couple of days and we will see then if I need new drywall and baseboard. They said they would be back in the morning to check on me (probably to make sure the giant blue thing doesnt suck me up during the night.) I really don't want to move, because this is my home and I can't just leave (ha). So anyway, all said and done, my rugs will dry as will the rest of my stuff that got wet. Nothing valuable was lost and it is absolutely hilarious to watch Smokes' fat pouch blow in the wind from the fans (video to come if I can get a good one.)
I like things plain and simple. I recently got married to my best friend Lance. He is the BEST! We are excited to see what God has planned for our future. I am currently recovering from spinal fusion surgery and am determined to continue working as a nurse. Smokes is my pussycat, Harley is my gecko. I love my family! Life is good!
