Life in Alabama

Life has been, well normal with a few twists and turns of course. I am finding it hard to write this post. I am not a complainer for the most part. I feel like God has blessed us so much that I shouldn’t complain. It would be ungrateful. My life is good and there and many people out there that have it a lot worse than I do. With that said, Friday Tim’s blazer broke down. I had supper just about finished when he called. He needed rescuing. He was on his way home from work. He heard a clicking sound, lost oil pressure, and then it stalled. A nice man stopped and helped him get it out of the road. We think the engine locked up. Poor Tim. He was so defeated and upset. This poor truck has rung him through the ringer. He said he has had enough. Remember that movie the money pit. Well this truck is a money pit. He is tired of putting money into it. So I’m not sure what he is going to do with it. We have a car he can drive. It just needs some maintenance done on it. New tires, brake pads. We took it this weekend and got new plugs and wires in it. It just always seems to be something. So I guess I am done complaining now.

Joshua had a basketball game Saturday. They won. His team has won all four games so far. I signed him up for soccer at the YMCA. That will start in April. He love playing sports.

Yesterday we had Friends day at church. We were supposed to invite people to church. It stinks living somewhere where you don’t have family or friends to invite. All of our friends all ready go to our church. LOL. We had a great meal. I made a pork roast, sauerkraut and hot dogs, and a cake. We ate way too much.

Andrew has 4 molars coming in at one time. He is sleeping right now. He is so cranky. He woke up in the middle of the night whining and chewing on his hand. Poor guy. It won’t be long before he is walking. He is pulling himself up on everything. Pulling everything off of the coffee and end tables. Little stinker. He thinks it is fun. He is fast too. He can get from one end of the house to the other almost as fast as we can. He will be 1 year old on April 25th. It is hard to believe that. This year has gone by so fast. My baby is almost 1. 🙁

  1. Oh, Holly, everybody needs to complain sometimes, so you can let those negative feelings go and move on!! DH and I have had our share of tough times. We have a saying that God always gives us enough to get by, but never enough to get arrogant!!

  2. Holly,

    It sounds like you need to complain once in a while. Sorry to hear about Tim’s vehicle braking down. And Andrew having 4 molars coming in at once. I’d be cranky too if I were Andrew.

    Love to read your posts and visit your site.

    Thank you for the quilt. We LOVE IT.

    Love you,

  3. The nice thing about blogging is that you can say whatever you want on your blog as it is yours. So I think it is ok to write down how you are feeling…good or bad. You keep your blog very upbeat with pix of your happy children. We all get bogged down sometimes with what life throws us.

    Vehicles are a such a pain…it seems like either you are paying it off or it is taking you for every spare cent in repairs. My husband recently blew up his car…literally. He was driving to work and smoke started coming out from under the hood. He was almost there, so kept going. When he got there, he got out and noticed sparks bouncing off the pavement under the car…so went in and grabbed a fire extinguisher! It was on fire under the hood! lol So there was no fixing that one. Back to a car payment….
