Our new toy

My daughter and I have a great friend who has had a clothes line in her back yard for as long as we have known her. The other day she had messed up her back and we went over to help her hang laundry out. My daughter said that it would be neat if we had one. So, that is exactly what we did. We went out THAT DAY and bought a clothes line with some clothes pins and a cute little bag to hold them in. We went home and had my husband put it up in the yard. We put up our first load outside last Tuesday and have not been able to get one dry since. It has rained and rained almost all week. In fact, our septic tank backed up on Wednesday and soaked the carpet... we are currently living in our living room and school room. We had to pull up all of the carpet after spending hours trying to soak up all the water. What a mess. We are waiting for new carpet, but it will be several weeks before we can get it in. Oh well, I am thankful for the new carpet and the clean house. No organisms growing in my carpet to worry about or mold growing up the wall. God is truly good, because we have no money in the resident budget to do this, but my husband's boss said "Do it and let me worry about it." I am so looking forward to dry weather. How are things around your house?

Until next time,
