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?
