A bit better today

Monday, July 08, 2013

It's late but today was a little bit better day. DH and I talked last night. I laid it all out on the table about going out to Colorado and to Illinois. He might have come up with a way for us to both but we'll just have to see. He knows how I feel about this feeling like I need to go out to Colorado to visit my grandpa. So, right now we've got some possible ways to make it happen for both of us to go out to Colorado but for now we just have to do what we can and wait to see what happens. Things always work out for the best it seems but the waiting to see what is going to happen is enough to drive me insane at times.

As for the hospital bill, I've decided to make payments on it. We could pay it off but they are willing to accept payments and that's what I'm going to do for now. I feel like I need to go see my grandpa and paying off the hospital is less important to me at the moment than going out to Colorado. I don't like being in debt. That's why it's the ONLY debt we have right now. So, I'm not too terribly worried about it. I know the hospital will get paid all of the money I owe them in the end.

I haven't touched that blasted sewing machine today and my mood has been better because I haven't. emoticon emoticon Who would have guessed that something like that could affect your mood?! I'm going to try to mess with the stupid thing a little more to see if I can get it to work. If I can't I guess I'll just have to do the sewing by hand. I don't want to but I will if I have to.

I did get plenty of movement this past week. I only did 2 days of formal exercising, so to speak. However, I did do around 45 minutes of walking Thursday and another day this past week. Plus I mowed our yard which took me about an hour with pushing the thing up and down hills and such. I just need to remember to have patience with the process. I usually am but sometimes I just get tired of having patience with the process.

I've been letting too many things get under my skin and I need to stop. It's not always easy to keep emotions under control. Anyway, I appreciate all of you and letting me gripe and cry on your shoulders. I will try to make more positive blogs. emoticon

    It's wonderful that you and your DH have talked and come to an agreement and a plan - that's what a partnership is all about!

    And yes, a payment plan for the bill is great (as long as they don't charge interest) - so much easier on you bank account!

    Hope it all works out!

    I SOOO know where you are coming from. You've got a raw nerve, just try to stay calm and do what you can to get by.

    You are very raw emotionally right now, so things that normally wouldn't seem a big deal seem huge. I'm glad things are looking up for you, and I hope you can work out a way for you both to get to Colorado. If making payments to the hospital is the way that you can make it happen, then that's what needs to happen. You can always make bigger payments as you are able and pay them off quicker when you get back.

    Sewing machines and I are like oil and water. Seriously. I've tried on more than one machine, but always end up with tangled thread, broken needles, torn material, etc. At this point if I need something more complicated than replacing a button it falls in hubby's domain.

    I hope you can have a safe trip out to see your grandpa. Forget about the darn sewing machine, it will be there for you whenever. Hugs.

    Setting priorities is always a good place to start when trying to figure something out. Sounds like its working for you. You know, the last sewing machine I had did the same thing to me-- not cooperate! Now I sew everything by hand, which means no really big projects, but, what the heck. Glad to hear life is back on track, and you're feeling better. If you need to vent again, we're here for you.

    It is healthier to vent than to keep things bottled up inside..I hope you feel better for it.
