hello out there

I don't know if anyone has been reading this blog lately - no comments have been made so I can't really tell. We are in the last few days of trying to get things together for our upcoming anniversary party. I may post one of our wedding pix just for the heck of it.
Today was very stressful. I was at work sitting in a meeting and I got a page from my husband. He had been in a near miss (almost hit by a car that didn't yield the right of way) while taking our child to school, and afterwards the clutch on his car was acting weird. Turns out something sheared off, and to make a long story short, we are in the position where we are having to replace his 1985 Bronco. Meanwhile, I have to drop him at work on my way in tomorrow. Prayers appreciated. I guess that the tax refund will go for big stuff, not little stuff.

I'm still reading, even though I don't comment often and it sometimes takes me a few days to stop in and read again. I'm like that! But hey, prayers for you and your husband and your situation. God bless y'all.

And I want to see more wedding pictures!

I'm sorry to hear about this expense. I've been through something similar recently, so you've got my prayers.

I feel your pain Alicia! My refund will be going for a new water heater, and transmission - none of the fun stuff this year!! : (

Me, too!

These trials will make the party all the more triumphant when you're able to finally pull it off!

Ditto. Weekends are, in a word, brief. I only swim back into the internet once half the Tribe is out of the way! Prayin for ya.

Lack of comments doth not a non-reader make!

Prayers forthcoming. Looking forward to the photo.

Praise God that the family is OK.

It's just one of those phases, Alicia. My blog's numbers are the same as always, but the comments are down too. I think it depends on several factors, especially the fact that some topics are just more "commentable" than others.
