How has your New Year started off? My oldest made it back to Louisiana and I had an enjoyable visit with all of my family. I got my independence back on Saturday before he flew out on Sunday. Car shopping was a different experience with all three of my kids, my oldest grandson, and my son-in-law checking out the car I got. My oldest would have been my co-buyer if I needed him, but I got it all on my own. Of course hubby was not happy about it, but I had told him that I got to pick this one and he had no say in it.
Enough suspense, I got a used 2015 Chevy Cruze. White in color which wasn't my choice of color, but the kids thought that I needed a lighted colored car. It doesn't have the bells and whistles that my other one does, but it will get me where I need to go and was affordable. They all gave their approval and my oldest grandson called to see if I was home yesterday. He wanted to come by and check it out closer then he got to on Saturday. They all have called to check to see how I am doing with it. Family helping family. I feel for those who don't have the support and closeness of family. You have ups and downs but when needed you all pulled together.
All of the grand kids are back in school. I think they were ready to go back. My oldest is suppose to send me pictures of his boxes that he has made and sold. He made two walnut boxes with a light color bows and lined the bottom of them with felt. I will post pictures when I get them.
I am so happy that I can now go when I want, where I want, do my shopping when I want, get a haircut without having to have some one come take me. Oh! they would do it and I will probably miss it, but to know that I can be self-reliant again gives me a good feeling. To be able to make visits more often to the nursing home to see really what is going on.
We have sunshine today and it is warmer then we have had, but the weather is suppose to change again. Needless to say we have been lucky in our area, but others have not. As my middle grandson likes to say, you can't replace people, but you can replace other things just may take a while.
He has a ball game on Saturday that I will go and watch. I missed his last ball game, but if the grades aren't there he may not play. He thinks mom and dad are bluffing, but they are not. He reminds me so much of his dad in that respect. He is very smart, and gets bored easy. He doesn't care for math, which is the most important and you need it for everything you do. They say they all go through that phase because dad works at a job that uses math every day. We all do.
My oldest grandson and his best friend put a starter on his friend's vehicle. It took them a while, but they got it accomplished so they were proud of themselves. He thinks he wants to go to a technical college when he graduates to continue his education on how to work on vehicles. He is very good about researching what he is working on.
I need to get my self in gear and run an errand. Go check on hubby because he didn't feel good yesterday. Prayers being sent for those in need. Take care. Stay safe and warm.
