Day 17 Highs and lows of this past year

20 Feb

Day 17 – Your highs and lows of this past year.

When I first began responding to this blogging challenge I thought about responding with some of the things that have happened over the past year, but as I thought about it more and more I realized it’s been a good year. Sure there are things that have gone wrong: like the stove we had to fix, and the dryer that now needs to be fixed, and the car that needed to be fixed (we still need to fix the window and the headlight, but she’s purring again.) I remind myself when things break that we’ll get to all of it one thing at a time. One day at a time.

lifeI could talk about how it rained right after our ceremony, which unfortunately meant we weren’t able to get any pictures of just us, but we did manage to get a lot of us individually, as well as our wedding party, family and friends. However, even though the reception was pretty much rained out, our wedding was outdoors, many of our family and friends hung in there with umbrellas until the rain was over. 😀 We’re so blessed to have such wonderful family members and friends.

I could talk about how the central heating and air still needs to be replaced (the outside unit is completely shot but everything upstairs works, which means because our unit is so old we’d either have to replace everything or find someone who can convert the stuff upstairs with a new unit for outside, or something), but there were other things that were more important than replacing it. But a good friend of ours gave us two window units last year at the beginning of the summer, and a heater so we were blessed. 😀

Or I could talk about how the uterine tumors and the lack of health insurance is a kick in the ass, but the Depo shot the Dr. gave me seems to be helping a lot. Or I could talk about how no matter how hard we try, it always seems like something is breaking, but truth is, we’re so much better off than we were when we moved in here just a little over a year ago. Yes, the house needs a lot of work, but it’s the cutest little house and it’s well insulated, and we’re working on things one thing at a time, and putting lots of TLC into everything. And that’s what is important. It’s not what is broken because things break all the time. Life happens, and as much as I joke about winning the lottery, the truth is, we’re doing good. life is like a book

I’m happy. I love my husband, my family and friends. We’re very blessed. I have a beautiful grandson who is such a good baby, and he’s so handsome and smart. My daughter is an awesome mom. Both my son and daughter are in college. My husband adores me. My in-laws are absolutely amazing and awesome. My parents love Mr. Rockstar! Mr. Rockstar’s daughter is on the honor roll, super smart and super sweet! I have no complaints other than about things breaking and how I really wish Mr. Rockstar could find a better job–one where he isn’t overworked and underpaid, or under worked and barely paid.

Truth is, I think life is what you make it. You can either look at the glass half full, or half empty, or take the attitude that maybe it’s just the wrong glass. I think my coffee cup needs a warmer, and my glass, well it is either half-full or I just need to get a different glass.
