Monday Mom Confessions: Not Everyone Loves Christmas

From December 2015. Christmas In Our Neck Of The Woods
Love Sarah

This has been a week of EXTREME HIGHS AND LOWS. I am still wrapping my head around the EVENTS that have taken place.I am FINALLY FEELING THE SPIRIT OF THIS BEAUTIFUL ADVENT NOW CHRISTMAS SEASON.SO IS DANNY. (Sort of.) He is relieved , as I am that some of our WORRIES are over. I am not ready to go into all of it, let’s just say, my dad sent ME (US) a HUGE CHECK.He had no idea how much we needed it.No one did. (Family).So we can get caught up again. Pay bills. Fix our personal truck. ETC.So all is good there.WE HAD A HUGE BLOWUP EARLIER THIS WEEK.HUGE.Totally took me by surprise. The ARGUMENT not the timing. Danny ALWAYS DOES SOMETHING THIS TIME OF YEAR.HUGE ENOUGH that WHEN I got the check, my first though was OH MY GOSH. TEARS. HAPPINESS.AND THEN, FORGIVE ME BUT….I thought, I CAN LEAVE HERE if I WANT TO.That thought didn’t just go AWAY.We also SOLD our RV to a young family who is going to fix it up enough to live in it.We didn’t get much for it after the damaged from the tree falling on it but then we weren’t expecting anyone to buy it to live in. I am excited for them. (His father fixes RV’s).The RV was our First home together. He sold his house the same time I moved here permanently. We lived in the RV for 5 years. Used it for another year after we moved into the house here and then took it to the old shop here on%2

My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
