Brooke, is that you?
Yes, Dad. *SOBBING* *SNIFFLING* My fridge quit while I was on vacation! *BAWLING*
Oh no, honey! Was there a lot of stuff in it?
Yes! *SOBBING* The mice for Pacen's snakes are mush and everything else is ruined too! *SNIFFLE* A lot of stuff!
Oh no. Well hon, there is nothing you can do about it tonight. You need some sleep. Take a deep breath and go to bed and call in to work tomorrow and tell them you'll be late. Clean out your fridge and I'll call Tim and see if we have any fridges in stock in Crawford.
Luckily the store in Crawford had a fridge in stock. Quinn had the day off so she drove down and got it. That night dad and Quinn drove to Lusk and dad helped me take my old fridge out, which was more difficult than we imagined, and put the new fridge in. Then he helped me a bit with my yard project.
I am so thankful for my dad! He is the best and although he is always super busy with his job and projects at home, he finds time to help my sisters and I out when we need it. He has been the best father figure for us girls and for Pacen. My dad is funny, compassionate, hard working, patient, and very loving of his family. I only hope that Pacen grows up to be like him.
|Raine, Dad, and I. (Quinn had to work.)|
|The one mishap we had today. Pacen accidentally hooked me, but luckily it wasn't as bad as it could've been.|
