keep on trucking along

I took my car to the shop today to get it inspected. It is going to cost me 856 dollars. You think that I would just lose it. But surprisingly, i took it ok. Just another page in my life. I have two months to get it done. I have all but 315 dollars of it. This is why I saved money until it really hurt. I dont know what my life brings me. I just have been learning to take it day by day. Things will change someday for me. I know it will. I am still depressed but feeling better. I am not nearly as bad. I always go in cycles with that. It is so hard but i manage to make it. Everytime my children smile or say they love me makes my life worth living. I know I have to keep on going. Life will change for me. I know it will. I know it wont change by itself. I have to make it change. At least I have the chance to change my life for the better. There are people who dont have that chance. I will be ok.. I know I will even though somedays I dont think so.

Tomorrow is trick or treat time. My 10 year old daughter is going to be a witch and my 3 year ols son is going to be a mouse. I bought these costumes over the summer at a yard sale. I paid 1 dollar a piece for them. I am thrifty like that. I am looking forward to getting out of the house and walking around town some. I dont get out much. They will have alot of fun.

well I will close this entry with a joke i thought was funny. Happy trick or treating everyone.

A papa mole, a mama mole, and a baby mole all live together in a little mole hole.

One day, papa mole sticks his head out of the hole, sniffs the air and said, 'Yum! I smell maple syrup!' The mama mole sticks her head out of the hole, sniffs the air and said, 'Oh, Yum! I smell honey!'

Now baby mole is trying to stick his head out of the hole to sniff the air, but can't because the bigger moles are in the way. This makes him whine, 'Geez, all I can smell is....

Stay safe everyone!!

ha ha cute story!! I'm glad to hear you are handling the car news well. Sometimes when there are too many problems going on with me, one more doesnt phaze me. Its like, oh well, now everything that can go wrong, has! Its all up from here right?
Have fun trick or treating, both my girls will be butterflies this year, but I dont know if my oldest is going to go out trick or treating or not, we'll see I guess.

LOL That little joke is too cute!! lol My husband had to go and follow our youngest son home and on the way to the shop. They really can't afford to get their car repaired. It cost sooo much anymore to get cars fixed. So sorry your car is not running. I think that is all that we can do and that is just live day to day. Just never know what tomorrow will bring. That is why I have to trust in the Lord, big time! I think that is SMART shopping. I try to shop smart all the time. Will be keeping you in my prayers. Hugs, Janie

Ha, cute joke!

So glad to hear that you're feeling a little better. YES, you WILL keep going, and YES, you WILL be okay! You're determined, and that's an important step.

Have a safe and fun Halloween!

Hugs, Beth

Christine, you sure sound like you're in a much better frame of mind now. I'm happy to know that. Keep that light shining in your head. I hope the witch and the mouse made out like pirates. DB
