Ever have one of those weeks? The kind of week where nothing seems to go right and it's a miracle when you make it to the end? Well last week was one of those weeks for us. Rough. So I took a little break from blogging and just tried to make it through. We survived, but I will give you an idea of the kind of week we had. One night after dinner Alan started mowing and weed eating the front yard. I was inside working on various other projects when I heard a loud pop. When I went to investigate the noise, this is what I found.
Alan kicked up a rock with the weed eater and it shattered the glass in our front door. This is the very reason that he wears eye and ear protection while doing yard work and I stay inside. He felt terrible, but accidents sometimes happen!
The insane part is that it continued to pop and crack for the next 30 minutes, but it never fell out.
I am thankful that no one was hurt and I am also thankful that we have double paned safety windows that don't shatter all over the ground. Only one of the panes broke, the inside pane is fine.
But I am NOT thankful for Bennett peeing on the ground right as I am taking this picture. Just pour salt in the wound, Bennett. You can see him right near the impact point, caught in the act.
We laughed a lot after all of this and called our families to recount the story. Worse things can and will happen with home ownership, luck for us a little broken glass was an easy fix. Because we built the house we just called the company that installed our windows and doors and got it all fixed up. I am still thankful that week is over though and we are starting a new one!
