Happy Thanksgiving

Doug and I had a fantastic Thanksgiving. We got to see both sides of our family. We went to Powell to see his Grandmother, Mother, Aunt and a cousin! It was a blast!! His grandmother was born in 1933 in Sweden, where she lived until she was 21. She is such a fun lady. She is spunky and says what she wants to say, yet she is so sweet and loving. She gave Nora an amazing gift. It is a necklace that belonged to her great-great-great Grandmother and her great-great-great grandfather's baby ring. They are both simple but very beautiful. I will take and post a picture when I can.

Then we drove down to Worland to see my side of the family. Everyone was here, even my two grandparents! It was so nice to see them. My grandfather is still walking with a cane after being attacked over fourth of July weekend, and my grandmother is on a cane still too after breaking her hip and hurting her neck about 2 months ago.

I am staying for another week here in Worland to be with family, but Doug had to go back to Billings for work and such. I miss him already, but the week will go buy super fast!

Today, Doug called because the car won't shift out of park. I happened to have the owner's manual here so I was able to find him and tell him the override procedure. Our tail lights have stopped working, we aren't sure yet if it is a blown fuse or a bad bulbs. I really hope it isn't something serious as we just don't have the money for this right now.

I really hate money problems. We were really hoping to be all done with this silliness by now. We are doing much better, but still we are looking onwards towards next month. We are hoping to gain ground next month. I really want to stop having to live paycheck-to-paycheck. It is so nerve wracking when unexpected things come up.

Well, I suppose that which does not kill you, makes you stronger! I just might have a head of white hair to show for it!
