sean is replacing a big roof . . . on a big house right now. well this big roof that is old and being replaced . . . decided to leak while we were at the super dome for the saints game. the roofer that is working on the job is already out of town for thanksgiving . . . so that means sean is the one that is up on the roof right now trying to temporarily fix the leak and try to prevent any other leaks from occuring. our plan was to leave last night for missouri and arrive today . . . probably about now. well because it's supposed to rain for the weekend . . . and this roof is causing some major stress for my husband . . . we decided it would be in our best interest to stay in new orleans for thanksgiving. so now if the roof decides to leak again . . . we won't be 675 miles away from it. unfortunately . . . we will be missing out on a camping trip with my parents and my 2 big brothers and their families. but . . . we will get to spend christmas in missouri and this will allow us to stay for a lot longer than if we were going for thanksgiving. (mike and heather . . . i think you should make another trip across the country for christmas too!) i'm bummed (do people still say that?) that we don't get to see my family today but i'm so thankful that sean has work that is throwing us for a loop . . . and i'm thankful that we have wonderful family in new orleans to spend thanksgiving with. and now . . . let's pray for a white christmas in missouri! it would be the absolute greatest gift for the girls!
