Moving Forward

Moving forward into a new day, one day at a time, brought me to a better day this day.  Still with not much sleep I managed to keep abreast of my emotions, only having one small breakdown today.

I kept myself fairly busy this morning, then had to take our personal van over to the garage in Sauble Beach for an oil change.  By the time I did a couple of more errands I arrived back home to find Rob had not only picked up our new couch, he had also had a friend help him put it in our living room.

This afternoon was spent cleaning and de-cluttering our living room.  It got about half done.

Furniture moved about, floors vacuumed and washed, then the new couch put into place.  Rob had gone to the Black Friday sale at Leons last month at 5:30 am to line up for a couch priced at $199.00.  They only had 5 and we were one of the lucky recipients.  They did not have the couch advertised and upgraded it with one valued at over $800.00 .... we were not displeased about this one iota.

What did I possibly breakdown a bit about today? memories long gone by ....

I got a little emotional looking back on some old photos of days gone by.  This was me in the late 90's .... I would say about 1998, as Rob and I had already been married in 1996.

There was even one with Rob and I dancing ... DANCING??? mind you I can barely recall the last time we did that together.  I LOVED dancing with a passion.

I had such a good day I even managed to cook dinner for us too !!!

Turkey Loaf ... I screwed up the recipe but it turned out very yummy !  a definite remake.

Interested in trying your hand at this Turkey Loaf (the right way)? for the Turkey Cheeseburger Meatloaf recipe just *click* HERE.

How did I screw up the recipe? I forgot the cheddar cheese, and mixed what should have been the topping into the actual loaf.  Still yummy, and I still made dinner *smile*.  I can honestly say I was somewhat otherwise distracted with the new couch being in our living room.

While waiting for dinner to cook this evening I had a nice telephone chat with my sister-in-law, Delores.  Another support person should I ever need someone to speak to.  I am blessed truly.

I am feeling good just in the fact that I had a good day.  One day out of seven is a good start, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
