Last week we wanted to get several things done around our house.  When our house learned of the plan, it gave out a giant laugh and told its house friends “Hey y’all!  Watch this!”

And then we spent the entire week trying to deal with kitchen sink and plumbing problems.

Such is life!

Here’s how we did with last week’s goals.
