The last handful of days have been weird ones – full of ups, downs, and in-betweens. It felt as though nothing actually went as planned, but we did our best to turn those lemons into lemonade (so they say). I’ll admit that while I was, at times, a bit of a Gloomy Gus, I bounced back just as quickly – as it seemed that most things were out of our control, so what’s the point of dwelling?
We did take a (too quick) trip to Cincinnati where we were able to spend time with Scott’s family and friends (good!), but we were derailed for a bit when our trusty wagon needed a trip to the car hospital (bad). While we had every intention of spending an afternoon at our favorite college-day haunts while in Cincinnati, those plans were nixed when our car went downhill (and in a ironic twist, this happened while we were driving up a hill when an axle went haywire. But it’s fixed now – good!).
Progress has been made on The One (sort of good?), but the so-called “progress” means that we have officially let it go – bad, yes, but we can finally just move on. There is some relief in that, so we’re ready to get back out there, dig in our heels and take that good with the bad – and make it really good again.
If that makes any sense.
Even though it’s been an exhausting few days (mentally, mostly), we are feeling optimistic about what’s to come. We have a dose of spring fever – it’s around the corner, right? (despite the snow storm we drove through to get back to Chicago) – and family time was perfect and necessary. This whole limbo-living nonsense won’t get the best of us, nope. Good things are coming; we can feel it.
How were your weekends? Who has snow?
