Love my crazy life


December 15, 2022

It’s raining! Usually, I would be down in the dumps because of the gloomy weather, but I am thankful for the warmer temperatures. It seems odd to me that it is raining in December and 50 degrees, but I’ll take it. The politicians would say it’s “climate change,” but I feel it’s simply the natural cycle of things. If I remember correctly, this area we call home was once desertlike.

The past couple of weeks have been rough. I’ve been down in the dumps and swamped with emotions. I get lost in my head over all the ways I’m falling behind and then get even more behind. It makes no sense at all to me. It didn’t help matters that the kids were home just long enough for me to get comfortable and then left again. I don’t like this stage of parenting all that well. As time goes by, I suppose I will adjust.

Robert has been struggling to replace the brake lines on his pickup. The main brake line rusted out. Thankfully he was close to home when it failed. Unfortunately, it failed at an inopportune time. He is preparing to move and has plans to travel over his holiday leave. It took a while, but he was able to get the lines ordered. They seemed to be out of stock everywhere. Last I heard, he had the line installed but was having trouble bleeding it. The weather has not been helping either, but I’m proud of him for keeping at it. I am praying he gets it all squared away this evening. It’s not a good time of year to be without a vehicle.

Jacob has been able to call and text more now that basic training is over. I can’t tell you what he says about training; it’s inappropriate for the newspaper, LOL! They were up in the mountains last week. He said it was beautiful, cold and miserable, but he gets to shoot big guns, so he is happy about that. He said he misses home but has made some great friends, which helps.

I hope the moisture continues. We need it so badly. I’m not looking forward to the inevitable snow this time of year, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a white Christmas? Maybe just white for the day, LOL! Not asking for much, am I? We will pick up Jacob from Omaha late on the 23rd. Robert will also be traveling home around that time. We pick up the two youngest from Omaha on the 30th and then return them home on the first. I have too much driving to do to ask for more than one white day, LOL! X’s & O’s
