Why did I NOT learn that as a kid growing up? (Stephanie, don't answer that.) Lately, I have a hard time accepting that. but failure is your friend too. it is the only way we learn. People in the past have said I am a "late bloomer," but that only translates as "slow learner."Steph and I are learning that hard way with the financial situation right now. She is working her tail off and the Cracker Barrel, and she brought home a lot of dough her first week serving tables ( all of it going to the student loans...) We both are exhausted, but it feels good now that we have a plan. I am not as depressed now.
Yesterday, driving out the driveway, on the way to church, we saw a ruffed grouse walking along the road. It didn't get spooked when we drove up to it. I tried to get pictures but it was so well camouflaged you couldn't see it in the pictures. It was cool looking though. It is now 7 pm and I am done at work.
