This little girl use to come down and play. She stopped coming because she was more mature than Megan. The things Megan wanted to do she found boring. I find it hard to wrap by head around the fact that this happened. There are many things I could say, but I won't. I'm trying hard to love. I left an open invitation for K to come down anytime and craft with Megan. Time will tell if she accept the invitation.
This week I feel like I have been on the go non stop. My dad made two trips to the ER within three days. The first trip was an ambulance ride from my home on Monday. Yikes! Thankfully he is doing much better.
That threw my week off. My grocery trip planned for Monday was shifted until Tuesday. Then Wednesday it was back to the ER. Thursday I had an eye doctor appointment. The running plus some late nights have left me tired and my home in need of some TLC. I'm thankful it's Friday!
Today I will work on laundry and we will catch up on school. What I don't get done around the house today we will all tackle together Saturday morning. I wish I could say that the weekend would be slow. We have some things planned for Saturday evening and then Sunday is church and we will go visit my father-in-law. It should be good though. A day of rest today and getting things back on track should help.
Since we haven't had a visit since March began I'll update you on my no spend February. HA! HA! HA! Does that tell you how it went? It seemed to be one thing right after the other that required spending. Not little spending either. Things such as Chuck had his truck into the shop twice. We still need to get the leak fixed on the van. It was suppose to be dropped off at the shop Monday evening, but that didn't happen. Hopefully next week. Two trees were cut down. They were both dead and one was becoming a danger. The area it was in would have caused damage to structures when it fell.
I feel like this post has been all doom and gloom. Honestly, even in the rough patches there is good. K didn't take her life and can now get the help she needs. My dad is feeling better and will continue to seek treatment to ensure that he is healthy. Although we didn't want to spend it, I'm thankfully we had cash to cover the truck expenses. The trees are down and when the strong winds come with spring storms we won't have to worry.
Spring is coming! Oh yes, this one makes me super happy. It is staying lighter in the evenings. The grass is starting to green up a little bit. There is a warmer day sprinkled in here and there. The robins are back.
See, there is always a reason to be grateful!
