2 Toilet fiasco's

So many of you know that we bought a house last spring but I'm not sure you know we still own a rental property about 2 hours away.  The hubby and I have tossed back and forth about listing the house on the market to sell.  It is such a hassle to be landlords... it is not a fun job when you live 2 hours away.  

My husband is a "fix-it" type guy!  I mean he really can fix anything but the amount of time it might take is unknown.  So our renter called a week ago informing us that she things something was wrong with the toilet.  She informed us that the flusher did not work a few months ago but her boyfriend fixed it but her water bill was extremely high.  I was wondering why she had fallen behind on her water...this explains it!  Yesterday my husband made the trip to go fix it...  he actually had to install a new one.  It made more sense to install a new on then trying to find the parts for an older toilet and the renters we happy about it.    It has been tough this year because my husband has to go out there too often, paint the porches, get a new water heater, and we still have postponed the roof.  Last year we also had to get oven.  He has to do this on his days off so I feel bad when his relax day is spend working and driving but he always keeps a good attitude.  

Now that we have 2 properties it is hard to make decisions.  I don't want to waste all our money on putting a roof on the house when I want a fence built at our new house.  Am I a lil selfish....

It is tough in this economy to sell the house but it is tough to keep hanging on to it too.  Right now we are praying God would direct us on what to do with it.  I guess I just keep praising Him that I have a house and wonderful family and not worry about all of it and just hand it over to HIM.  Please join me in praying for some guidance and wisdom in this rental property.  THANKS! 

While we are on the topic of toilets I have a fun story.  I say fun now but it sure was not fun at the moment.  My daughter was using the bathroom and was in there for sometime before she said, "Mom, the toilet is not flushing and it's leaking!"  I rushed in only to splash around at least an inch of water all over the bathroom floor.  I had to reach down and turn the water off- I am so thankful for sayings, "Righty tighty, lefty loosey!"  In those moments of panic it sure helped!  So I got the water turned off and I unclogged the toilet!  The next thing I see is the dog slurping up as much water as possible- GROSS and my toddler jumping in the puddles having "fun"!  All of this taking place when daddy is not home!  Needless to say it took some time cleaning every thing and everyone but I did have a moment of being proud that I was able to tackle the toilet issue.  :) 

So there you go 2 toilet stories! :) One handled by super mom and the other by super dad!  :)

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
