Life Throws Us All Curve Balls.
Normally, this time of year, we are very cold and full of snow. This year, the weather for January has been exceptionally mild with very little snow. We have had only one night when the temperatures plummeted below zero, and, yes that was cold. Many days in January, in past years, have had actual highs in the below zero digits. That's not uncommon for January in Minnesota. This year, the cold day has been the exception. I'm not complaining about this curve ball!
Normally, the kids are both back at work after the holidays. This month, Nick is traveling for work, and Jenny was in the hospital for over a week with an illness that could have been life threatening. This is not what I had imagined at all. I was hoping that either or both of the kids would be home sometime this month for a few days. Instead, I have spent two weeks with Jenny. One week because she was so ill. One week because I became so ill and am still in the recovery process with her.
Life hasn't turned out as I had expected in January. It's been a month of curve balls for me. How has January been for you?
I have enabled, I hope, anonymous comments if you do not wish to leave your name. I will post, after moderation, as many comments as I can. Let's hear about you. I hope your month has been better than mine. What do you want to say?
