Murphy's Law

What a week- and it's only Thursday!! I guess it's Murphy's Law that when one thing goes wrong, there is more to follow! (No pun intended:) We got a new air conditioning/heating unit late last week because ours went out. Bright and early Monday morning (5:30am) I got up to go to bootcamp and turned on the heat because it was freezing. Before I got out the door a horrible odor filled the house and then set off the smoke detector! We had to evacuate to Walker's parent's house-it was crazy! Luckily, nothing was wrong and this is supposedly "normal". I know it should smell a little bit, but to set off the smoke detectors? Then Tuesday we had our washing machine looked at because it had been leaking. The hose was completely rotted out and the inside of the door was really moldy! (For those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile-yes, this is the new washer I posted about earlier in the summer-only 8 months old!urrgh!) The parts have been ordered and we are now waiting on them to come in. Anyway, it was quite traumatic for me since I have not been able to use it for a week now! To top it all off, Murph has had a terrible runny nose all week and has also abandoned napping right now! He's been as happy as a clam, though, as you can see in the pics below! None of these setbacks were major, just annoying, so it could be worse!! Thanks, DeeDee and Dibs for taking us in on Monday morning and for letting me do some laundry yesterday! You are lifesavers!! Why did Daddy put the baby chick in my overalls?
Yay! I got her out! Now I will chew on her...
Working on our leg strength- there is a lot up top to support on those turkey legs!!:)

Go murphy! He is standing great! I love his overalls, they are precious! Guess what-Allie Harris has 2 teeth, finally!!! The bottom middle ones. I know how frustrated you are about the washer and dryer, just think things can only get better? Right?! Of course! Love you all...

Oh Murphy--what a big boy!!

Its a whirlpool of all things! My grandmother thinks they hooked the new washer to the old hose. Maybe that was it?! Needless to say, I feel powerless without a washing machine-haha!

Although glad to see him standing, I had a sad moment! He'll be walking before we know it!

What a bummer about your stuff "breaking"! If it makes you feel any better.....our refrigerator bit the dust, so we go buy a new one. They deliver it and before bringing it in tell us it has a broken part on it! What?! So, they hook it up (to save our food) and I have to go through the whole shebang again on Friday. Then my laptop died and we had to replace that. When it rains, it pours! Murphy looks very impressive standing up!

It seems like that always happens in multiples. Hopefully you've had your share for a while! Murphy is as cute as ever - looking more like his daddy I think!
