Well, it's been quite the week.
We came home on Saturday and walked into our apartment to a horrible smell. Both Greg and I looked at each other and said, "What is that!" We spent the next two hours smelling houseplants, the christmas tree, the empty garbage cans and anything else we could think of to try to locate the source of the smell. We finally decided to take down the Christmas tree and put it outside to see if that would help. While I was taking it down I noticed that my socks were getting wet. That's how we discovered that the carpet had gotten wet and then sat for weeks while we were gone. So we emptied out our living room, and the last few days maintenance has been in and out of our apartment, tearing up the ceiling and working on the plumbing... tomorrow they recarpet for us.
So, this week has already felt like a week of upheaval: with furniture everywhere in our small apartment and maintenance workers, plumbers, and painters coming and going.
Then tonight our car broke down while Greg was "in town" with Leesi at Sam's Club. They had to be towed home.
And to cap off the week Greg's Gramma went to the hospital today. She had a stroke. She got to the hospital very quickly - so that's good news. But please pray for Gramma and the rest of the family. Greg is going to fly out tomorrow morning for the weekend just to be there with the family and see his Gramma. In the next day or so they will be able to determine the extent of the damage. Right now we don't know a whole lot, but we are optimistic.
