1/9/13 and 1/10/13: Back in Helena!
Thursday, January 10, 2013
We made it safely back to Helena today. The passes weren't too bad when we started off, but by the time we passed Lookout, it started snowing. We ended up swerving on the ice a little bit trying to pass a semi... and almost hit it! I'm really glad we didn't!
The car was totally full on the drive. We had to bring back so much stuff. Wynne has tons of clothes, plus Mom gave us a lot of kitchen stuff for Christmas (and just because, to make room for her new stuff), and she always sends us back with a lot of food...
Leaving Liv was heartbreaking, as always. It is so hard for her to say goodbye to us. We left right before she left for school (she was late, actually), and she ran outside and waved as we drove off, crying. She called me from Mom's car in tears saying she missed us and wanted us to come home soon. It's hard to have a home here and then a home with Liv... when she grows up a bit more it won't be so difficult, because she'll stop being so dependent and will understand that we have to go, and she won't be as crushed... but I can't stand seeing her so broken up.
We never did the problem with Hughes solved. We tried 3 different methods, and they ended up saying they would call in 2-5 business days, and lo and behold, no call! But I'm back to the Land of the Unlimited, so I can still do what I need done, and Mom and Dad will have more than enough.
Small victories lately: I ate green beans last night without wanting to vomit! Also, my sports arm bands came in the mail, and my new gym bag and yoga stuff and balance ball will be coming soon :)
I think I strained a bicep tendon (it's tender and continuously "bad sore" just above my elbow joint), and I think I may have hurt my foot moving some things from the car today
