Let the sun shine in

Well the sun is shinning and the birds are singing and my favorite weather man tells me it will be near 80 today. How much better this Monday is compared to last Monday. The hot water heater and the furnace were replaced on Friday, (yeahhhhh!!!!) and I only have three loads of laundry to do today to get caught up on the back log of dirty clothes. We were so excited for the hot water that we actually ordered pizza, something we only do a couple of times a year, and usually it's for someones birthday. Everyone is now back to work and school, so with the exception of the hammering from my neighbor behind me all is quiet. I think it will take awhile for this family to recover from this Nor'easter of 07. It just wasn't the loss of objects or lack of hot water, but the clean up time (which is not completely done yet) and the stress that filtered from one family member to another. It is the loss of one week of vacation time for Dad and the garbage his boss feed him about company loyalty. It's the already tight purse strings being cinched even tighter as the bills come in from the plumber and the oil company and the fear from us all that if it rains this week, will we flood again?
