Thanksgiving

Life is hard.  We all know this.  And I have a tendency to say that life is like a roller-coaster, you have your ups, your downs, your swoops all arounds.  You never know quite what life is going to throw at you next.  There are a bunch of times, like now I wish I could catch a bit of a break.  I could use a bit of a break.  Yesterday I woke up and swear my head felt congested and I felt like I wasn’t running on all cylinders all day.  And things just went down hill from there.  In fact I think I wound up crying like 4 different times.  I’m not a huge crier, but when things pile up and pile up, eventually I break down.  I guess I hit that point yesterday, more than once.

Then I should have come home and studied for my A&P test I have today and instead, I moved photos off my computer.  I played with touching up photos.  I watched Christmas movies.  I did things that got me far away from my problems, although that probably created new problems for this evening, I have a test to take and I’m not 100% ready for it.  However I did read the chapter twice.  Yehaw!

I’m so in the mood for Christmas, especially with the cloudy weather, the cooler temps, the rain drizzle and of course it getting dark out before or at least by the time I get off work.  Hubs has been wanting to put our Christmas tree up for about a month now.  He and Tbug were on me this last weekend about, yeah let’s put it up.  I had to be the strong one and say, um… not quite yet.  But, I’m not sure how much longer I’ll last.  Truthfully I’m ready for Christmas.  Happy things and joyous times come with Christmas.

And although Thanksgiving and Christmas will be very different and very hard this year what with some stupid family things that have happened this summer/fall, I’m still ready for a happy joyous time of year.  I’m ready for some stress to be lifted off my shoulders.  I’m ready for some peace and joy and the reason for the seasons!

I am very Thankful and Blessed for my life and my family and I know tough times will come and go but yesterday was awful.  However, even on the worst of days I get to come home to my husband who loves me dearly.  I get to call and talk to my parents both of whom are there for me.  I get to speak with my grandma.  Even though life is hard, Life is good.

So here, I’ll share with you a photo that I was playing around with touch ups on.  It’s from last year at Thanksgiving time.  Our first Thanksgiving as a married couple.

PS, we weren’t in Chicago for this picture, we were in Oklahoma… I’m just sayin 🙂

I wish things would be different this year, but we’ll make the best of things and we’ll move on.

And hey, maybe tomorrow I’ll share a recipe so you don’t have to read about the sadness in my life… LOL 🙂 Have I ever told you I like food?

  1. Just take it one day, one hour or one minute at a time….whatever gets you through! I hope your “roller coaster” is full of ups soon! xo

  2. Oh please trust me I know how you feel. I need a break so bad. Our luck has been in the crapper for about 2-3yrs. Christmas movies def. help. I sat home the other night & watched Funny Farm, Yours Mine & Ours and Cheaper by the Dozen (the really old ones, not the new versions).

    I vote you hold off on the tree for a while, but how about you compromise by putting up the Christmas lights outside? 🙂

  3. I hope you get to fully enjoy your Thanksgiving. I know all about ups and downs in life (too well) – and I also know all too well about changes in family dynamics and worrying how they will effect our family gatherings. Trust me, everything will be okay 🙂

    I'm itching to get my tree up, but holding off til the last week of November!!

  4. One thing I like about the blogs I read, is the honesty, nothing irks me more than the “life is perfect , we are spectacular ” form letters that come out every year. We all have good times and bad , and keeping it real does us no harm at all ! Hugs sweetieI am sure you will ace the test and whatever cxomes your way you and PC will handle with love and grace

  5. Hope things ease up soon! This seems like it has been a particularly rough year for alot of people. I know its been a hard year for us.. alot of job stress, worry about the drought, finances, etc.
    We just gotta keep rolling on, and choose to trust the Lord each day. 🙂
