I am trying, really I am. I will try to keep this post upbeat or you my sweet followers will disown me.
My yesterday may make you chuckle. I got up and went to work at 6:00 a.m. We had lots of rain that night. It was freezing rain when I drove in. Then it started to snow, lots and lots of wet snow. Couldn't believe they didn't cancel school. The buses all showed up late. After I left I knew why. When I came home I couldn't get up the hill. A truck in front of me got stuck. As I skid this way and that way I managed to turn my little bug around and head back out of the neighborhood. I passed the guy in the truck walking up the hill. I really didn't want to do that. I knew I would have to walk back down later. So I tried it again. No luck. So now what......I had left my purse at home. I went to the bank and whined enough and they so nicely gave me some money. The teller knew me and the manager is one of my kids mom......that helped. So I went to the drug store and bought some magazines and then went to the coffee shop. They have gluten free coffee cake there......and let me tell you, it is mighty fine. So I read and ate and sipped. Saw an old friend and we talked. So two hours later, I am so ready to go home. So once again I try to get up the hill and you guessed it......slip and slid and a no go. This time I decided to go to my son's house in town. I thought I'll just take a nap. It was toooooo quiet there with everyone gone. So about 1:00 p.m. I called a neighbor and she said the plow had made an appearance. So I got up the hill, ate my lunch, let my dogs out to potty and they had lunch. Soon it was back to work again. When I got off work I came home to search for photos. Before I started scrapbooking, 8 years ago, my photos were here and there and everywhere. I am doing a story board for Jo's services next week-end. I found lots of photos and of course there were lots of memories and....... I am not going there right now. I sliced my finger on a glass frame. The cut needed a stitch or two but I wasn't going there either. So it bled and bled and I finally wrapped it with lots of guaze and just went to bed.
Okay on with today......Mr. C.B. and I went to K. Bug's basketball game. She is the only girl on the team. She really wishes she wasn't on the team but her Daddy said she had to follow through. And, she IS the cutest one on the team, you know. They do a play called the tornado. It is so cute. Her teammates run in a circle and guess what the opposite team members do.....they run around with them. Okay so Mr. C.B. got to go on his Christmas present with our son today. Doing guy things, remember I had my day scrapbooking. So I went to Coldwater Creek with my coupon to find something to wear next week-end. I am so casual and cheap. Plus I am not very tiny, so I hate to shop for clothes. I thought I found something until the clerk about did a head spin. I spent forever and only ended up with this black cardigan flowie thing and three long sleeve nice t's. I know what you are thinking, but the black thingie is nice. I know those clerks were glad to see me go after they had to return all the things I tried on. Why is it they have such cute things in their catalog but none in the store. Oh well.
On to Archivers to get some things for the story board and more pictures made. Then to the drug store for Neosporin and bandaids. I am home alone with the doggies. Made some phone calls and still looking for pictures. I DID do the dishes. It has been a week, yes, a week. We have eaten out or did carry out all week. My husband has been so wonderful this week. He is greiving as well and really understands. So life moves on with or without me so I better keep on............thanks so much for all the prayers and concerns......that has helped so much.
