(Erika got a cool pink Kodak for Christmas and she is really enjoying being a photographer. These are pictures of our fire tonight. Pretty nifty.)
Jan 1, day one of the brand new year. We had a grand finale of lots of fireworks...of the words variety. It was really no one's fault, per se. Sometimes money stress just becomes overwhelming and the tension breaker is a big fight over whose fault it is. Then the next day when sleep has improved your judgement, you both realize sometimes it isn't any one's fault-life just attacked your wallet one too many times. We have almost recovered from the financial strains but it was really overwhelming there for a few weeks.
Jan 2, day two of the brand new year. We decided what we really needed to do to end the day right was make a big fire. So we took all the kids and pets to the burn pile and lit up the sky with a real purty fire. A very nice catharsis. Almost as good as screaming at the top of your lungs but much quieter.
So far I've gotten no where in my "plans for self-improvement" unless fighting with hubby and building a big fire are in some way self-improving? Yeah, I didn't think so.
However, tomorrow is a brand new day!!
