Brief update....

Not a whole lot to say at the moment, but thought I'd let everyone know
that I am indeed still breathing.  I suppose that's a good thing, right?
Every time fear starts to grip me a little bit, I repeat "I trust you" in my head to the Lord.
I'm not sure what's going to happen, but for today everything's okay.

On an aside note though, something that did NOT help my fear....
the other day I went and bought this little rubber duckie thermometer for the pool.
It was adorable... yellow with black sunglasses on and a thermometer sticking out of the bottom.

Well, yesterday morning when I woke up?


Completely gone from the pool.
I checked the strainer basket, tore apart the pool, checked under every floatie, 
checked the whole backyard (because, you know, 
rubber ducks can just up and climb out of the pool and stuff).
It's no where to be found.
Paul was skeptical because I'm kind of notorious for insisting something is missing
when it's really right in front of my face,
so when he got home he searched for himself.
Nope, it's really gone.
Someone was really in my backyard and creeping around and stole my duck!

And it makes me want to run right back to my just-in-case hammer!
I mean WTH!

It's not a good thing, but Courtney has already seen the bad guy driving past her work
in his truck, so at least I know it wasn't him.


There's no duckie stealing thief in our midst!!!
It just seemed too weird,
so when we got in the pool today,
I stuck my arm in the skimmer,
and even though we couldn't see anything,
I could feel the thermometer and I pulled it out!
It had floated in and gotten stuck half way between
the pool and the basket up where we couldn't see it.


I feel so much better knowing that there wasn't someone prowling around
in our backyard while we were sleeping.
And I know it sounds weird that someone would steal a rubber duck anyways,
but it was just GONE.
And stranger things have happened, right?
Anyways, mystery solved!

lurve you, xoxo v.
