In need of a vacation

Wow, what a weekend it has been! Woke to water flooding my kitchen at 1am! Nice get up and have to turn off the main water valve just to get it to stop. Thought for sure it was a frozen pipe that burst! Here we go again.... You know not having running water for someone that goes to the bathroom every hour does not bode well.. Sissy and Dad came to the rescue at 9 and found that it was actually a dishwasher issue. Now I have water again and will wash dishes by hand till the part comes! The next day I called my mechanic to tell him I have been adding coolant regularly for the last six weeks and he tells me no big deal and he will look at it when I get back from vacation. Then calls me as I am out running around and has me check the oil to make sure its not "milky", sure enough it is and he tells me to go home and not drive it as I need a new motor! Nice! (but he did offer to buy it from me for 3 or 4 hundred if I decided to get a new one) At this point I am afraid to go to sleep as not sure what will happen next?? I still am dealing with a teenage daughter who wouldnt know the truth if it slapped her in the face! UGH, I need a vacation! Good thing I am leaving in less than 24 hours with my eldest daughter, my sweet son in law and my Nonny! Forget it all for 5 days and pretend all is right with the world! Thank you Jesus for all u do for me! I dont know how people make it through all this life crap without you?
