The last few days have been a mix of good news and bad news.Good news is I've gotten a few things together for my 300 followers give away so expect that soon!Bad news is after the job my hubby had in Alaska fell through he was unable to find work again.As gracious as our friends have been letting him stay with them, with no work on the horizon,a dwindling bank account and 4 months away from each he decided it was time to throw in the towel.Great news is we'll be together again soon at least!But the bad news is its here where I don't want to be and where jobs are hard to come by too.
What does the future hold for my family?I can't say.I don't know where exactly it will be other than not here as I don't care for southern California.Our goal for now is to just make the best of the situation,save money and go from there.
I had some time to process the news and I'll admit yesterday I was pretty blue but sitting around sulking about things you have no control over doesn't do any good.Instead I took the kids for a walk to hunt for lizards.That mission failed but Heidi was equally thrilled over finding a patch of mushrooms and moss growing under a heavily shaded tree.
After parking the stroller in the driveway we weren't quiet ready to go in the house and decided art time was in order.It is hard to stay too upset about anything when you have chalk in your hand doodling stars,hearts and stick figures galore.Pretty therapeutic actually!
Ollie decided to join in the fun by dragging the box of chalk around the driveway and that my pants made for a lovely canvas too.
