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!
