For those of you who are hopping by via the Thursday Blog Hop, welcome, thank you and I will catch up with you to follow back in the next day or two. I hope you genuinely like my blog and visit again soon. Please consider visiting my other blog Your Daily Shot of Espresso as it is new and I only have ONE follower. *grin*.
I tend to be a very honest (to a fault) person and am one to wear my heart on my sleeve. I get my feelings hurt easily, but often hold it in and privately lick my wounds. I think I'm just an overly emotional person....
I am very frustrated today....because last week we got a gift of money from my aunt, and it was a blessing. With my husband not working and us living on his minuscule retirement, I wasn't sure how we were going to pay for Christmas gifts for the kids and still eat (even beans and weenies was going to be pushing it). Well, this gift was wonderful. A few items for the kids and Christmas dinner for us. That is, until today. *I* ran over the curb last week/early this week. I am learning how to drive and well, I could give excuses, but the damn curb jumped out at me and I hit it....and ruined one tire. ONE. Due to that, we had to get it replaced. Well, they recommend replacing TWO (of course) so we got two new tires.... $400 later.... our car is making a terrible, headache producing sound. We stop at the shop and they say, oh, it's all wheel drive, you need to replace ALL FOUR tires...... FML. That took care of the wonderful gift from my aunt AND the Christmas gift from my husband's mother. Merry Christmas to us! Ugh. ONE bad tire (thanks to ME) and three perfectly good ones.... replaced. I give up.
Then I come home and play with Hope a little, always the highlight of my day. She drew a picture of ME, her HOT mama. HA! Just had to share.
