Updates for early January 2013

Sunday, January 13, 2013

One of these days, I'm going to use the video blog option, it would be so much faster.

I bought the '06 Nissan XTerra, tires & rims tomorrow, along with insurance. I should be driving it by Thursday.

Funeral bill is paid off.

Bought a snow blower today. Delivery & setup & hands-on instructions later in the week.

I've done more yardwork in the last month then I've done in the last year, I'm sure. It's hard not to feel overwhelmed.

Signed a loan at the bank for purchases. By myself. It's not that I don't think I can make it work, it's that I had to do this without My Guy. It's been a mixed emotion kind of weekend.

I'll be relieved when the Pathfinder is off the road. I'm hoping to get the chip in the windshield fixed before it can't go on the road anymore. Also hoping to find a welder friend who can remove the plow frame from the Jeep and rig it up to the Pathfinder, so I can learn in a slightly safer vehicle how to plow my dooryard. In early February, I'm having a house party, hopefully a bunch of people will show up, and I need the dooryard cleaned up better than it is. I might not plow this winter, but I can see next winter I would.

It's been an up & down kind of week and weekend. Yesterday was 3 months.

I miss you, Sweet Heart. I still do.

    You are leaving the baby steps and making teenager steps!! Good for you!!...and I love the way you still talk to that strong man that had to go on ahead of you but is still walking at your side. Oh Jo, you are a delight to my heart to see such "good grief" showing us how, mentoring as you walk this lonesome path but doing so well. Bless you as you share with us.

    As they say...One Day at a time Jo. And as Pooh bear would say "You're Stronger than You Think You Are". You're an amazing woman in your own right. You're taking amazing baby steps. Here if you need me!!! emoticon
