Buckle Up and Hold On

I had planned to post my "One" word for the year and what it meant to me, but I'm finding myself with a need to unload a bit...and it's only the second day of the year.  I'm hanging on to my faith that it's going uphill from here.  2017 is going to be a good, do you hear me, GOOD year.

Anyway....

My husband and I went back to work today.  The school district I drive for was the only local one that went back today.  I wasn't thrilled, but hey, I'd have gotten over it.  Then as the morning run went on the worse I felt.  By the time I got home my guts were rumbling and threatening to attack from both ends.  My joints started aching and I had the chills.  By the time I had to head back this afternoon I knew I couldn't do it and called off.  My boss scheduled me off for tomorrow morning, too, because this has been going around and she thinks I will need at least that long.

Hubby called while I was dying on the sofa this morning and told me that another company is interested in interviewing him and his boss is interviewing with them, too.  The company is based locally and provides a company vehicle. We've been discussing the need for him to find something closer because of the wear and tear on his truck, the cost of fuel, and the fact that the company he's with now, while good about never laying off, pays on the really low end of the scale.  We are really praying about it....and I have to admit, I hope it works out.

And for the cherry on top of the day, my husband called again a little while ago. His truck won't start.  I want to cry.  After all we poured into last year!  He doesn't seem to think it's the same thing so I am hopeful it is a cheap, easy fix.

So, that's my brain dump.  It's just been a day of ups and downs.  Kind of like a roller coaster.

What was it Annie said?  The sun'll come out tomorrow.

  1. I'm wondering who we can lobby to declare a re-start for your year. I hope you're feeling better very soon.

    1. Thanks, Rodney. I am beginning to feel somewhat human again. Well enough to be bored with TV and the internet, anyway.

    1. Thank you, Debby! It looks like it is a simple rebooting of the computer chip thingy he put on the truck last summer, but keep praying about the job. If not this one, then another.

  3. When it rains, it sometimes pours. So sorry you got so sick, but glad your boss gave you the extra time off to recover. Hope the truck is an easy fix, and also hope that new job works out! Do please keep us posted!!

    1. Turns out it was an easy fix. Since he put that computerized chip thingy in this summer I guess it just needs reset from time to time. Yay!
