I know my last post a few days ago was a bit of a downer – I just get so frustrated at life sometimes. I know there’s nothing I can do about some things but I just wish I could. Things have gradually gotten better over the last several days.
I spent the entire weekend in the cold and snow looking, looking, looking at my truck and I finally found the problem. A wire was disconnected. Tess, Sarah’s boyfriend’s mom arranged to have a friend of hers fix it. It was nice to have someone who knows what they’re actually doing to look at my vehicle and tell me what’s good, what’s bad and what’s ok. I can breathe easier a bit now knowing what’s up with the truck and especially since it’s fixed.
We finished decorating the tree – well the kids did most of the decorating stuff lol. It looks pretty good. I also got some projects finished that I’ve been wanting to get done for a while now.
And I decided that we’ll just have to work our Christmas around Sarah’s schedule and learn to deal with it. Nursing is the career she wants to do and we’re just need to learn to live with the fact that she’ll be missing many family get-togethers in the future. There’s going to be holidays, birthdays, funerals, and special days that she just won’t be able to attend. I was hoping for a few more years but I gues it’s just time to learn how to deal with it.
Here’s some pictures from the past few days – hope you enjoy them.
