When I think the plans are going to work just right, life happens. Darling Hubby calls it the family curse, but if it is, it comes from his side! :)
We wanted to go see the daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. That involves planning, timing and money. It was easier before I went back to work, but always always always involved money!
So the curse through bad brakes and a bad furnace in the middle of winter at us.... there went the money we were pretending we had enough of. So the trip is off, I don't get to see the family or the countryside or get away.... Next time I'll just up and do it without the planning and stuff. Maybe that will work, ya think?
