I’m so very blessed and grateful to be pregnant with my fourth child (most likely another boy, but we are waiting to find out the sex until he/she is here). With all of the wonderful things a pregnancy brings, such as laying in bed and watching my belly move…there are some not so great things that happen to me….

My van was over on miles and I hate taking the boys to the dealer to get an oil change, so last week after church, my husband picked up a filter and some oil so we could do it ourselves. The next evening we trekked the short mile to my parent’s house to change the oil. Ricky had about thirty minutes or so to change the filter before Lane had to be dropped off at baseball practice..so I thought, what better time to delve into memory lane and get into the attic in my dad’s garage…yeah, I know, it wasn’t my best decision, but I thought it would be fun to look at my old toys from when I was a kid. I climbed up on my dad’s boat and tried to hoist myself into the attic…um yeah, I’m not that strong, so I yelled for Ricky to come and boost me up. In the meantime the kid’s were in the boat (sorry dad, I swear they didn’t touch any buttons…um maybe), and they were wanting to see everything I found. I needed Ricky’s help to get down, he had to finish the oil and then he loaded up the kids and took them to Lane’s practice. I stayed back at my parent’s to walk on the treadmill….and it wasn’t more than ten minutes that I received a phone call from my hubby saying I needed to pick him up, there was something wrong with the van…..long story short, with all the chaos and rushing, my husband forgot to check to make sure he got the old filter seal off. Well, the old seal wasn’t off and the new filter didn’t stay on when he started driving, all the oil came and out, and the engine light came on……so, what should have only cost us around $30 for an oil change is now going to cost us roughly $1426.61 to fix the damaged motor.

Remember last year when I wrote that long post about slowing down and spending more time with my family??.. (here’s the link). Well as many of my close family and friends know, I actually let myself become even more busy than I already was! So, as my crazy year is winding down, God has revealed some things to me that I need to share.
