The Dark Cloud

Ever have those moments.  You know, the ones where you wish you could crawl in a hole and just shut off the world?  That's the moment I am in right now!  I came home to find out that my water meter is sinking.  Ack!  How is that even possible?!  My friend couldn't shut off the sprinklers as he couldn't access the controls as they have sunk and are now covered in ....some kind of funk....and a TON of water!

Yikes.

The good news, the city will probably...praying that this is right, ....have to fix this without me having to figure out how I am going to pay for it.  Thank goodness!  The bad news....I've spent the entire afternoon dealing with this and trying to get the guy scheduled to come out and repair.....so I have NOTHING new to share!  :(

....picking a couple of my favs....and hoping, as the repair guy will be here at some point early tomorrow....that by the time you see this I am getting really GOOD news that I do NOT have to pay for this!

I did take the boys for trick-or-treating so thought I would share one of my favorite Unity Halloween decorations......


Here's one more.....





Hugs,
