Just Checking In

Hi Everyone!

I still haven't had any time to figure out what is going on with my home computer - that dreaded blue death screen keeps appearing - so I have no beading pictures, sorry about that.  And I have had no time here at work to see what all you talented beings have been up to!!  Drat.

But I just wanted to let you know Hannah and I are settling in to our new 'country home' as we like to call it.  Our first night there was Sunday.  So far so good.  I have convinced myself that ITS ALL GOOD.  Hannah is happy and its been soooooo long since I've been able to say that, I am just focusing on that.  Everything else will fall into place.   

Last Thursday I spent the day cleaning the country place (and doing a fair amount of boo-hooing, I admit).  Just the night before, Hannah and I went to listen to a motivational speaker by the name of Ron Bachman.  (Please, if you have the time -- no please make the time -- go see his story.) So I was in the middle of cleaning the kitchen window which overlooks the railroad tracks and I was in the midst of a raging pity party, when I thought of Ron.  I immediately got mad at myself and said to myself:

 SO WHAT??! 
So What that the light at the end of the tunnel you saw when Hannah was happily attending her new school turned out to be the oncoming train?!  Get over it - get on with it!  

And then, I swear I'm not making this up, I heard the train whistle.  I grabbed my camera and ran out the front door and got a video of the train roaring past the apartment - what a sight!  I was cracking up laughing the whole time it went by.  How freakin' ironic was that timing??!  I'll post the video as soon as I can either:  (a) figure out what is going on with my computer or (b) wrestle Claire's laptop from her and use that. 

Keep Calm and Carry On!
