I'm a Grumpy Old Troll

Today has been a rough day.

I took the baby into the doctor. While the doctor was examining him he started to cry. He really thought that he had broken his collar bone. The x-ray showed that everything was ok. That was nice to hear. I have been worried about him. He did say that he is hurting somewhere and that he will start to feel better in about a week. He said something that I thought was very nice. He said that babies are not wimps yet. When they are crying from pain they actually have a reason. He hurts, we don't know why, but I am happy that nothing is broken.

Our Bishop had a stroke the other day. He has been in the hospital and we have been worried about him. Today was a day that they were going to do some tests and I am really hoping that everything went well for him. He has been in our prayers.

Our car has been broken down for a few weeks now. It has been stressful, but my mom and dad have been awesome to let us borrow one of their cars. We towed the car to the shop the other day and today we found out that it may need a new engine. If this is the case, it is totally not worth it to fix it. We have a big decision to make right now. Should we pay them a few thousand dollars to see if they can fix it? Or do we just cut our losses and find a new car? I wish I could afford a new car. I haven't had a car payment in years though and I really don't want to start now. I hate grown up decisions!

I am leaving for Houston on Friday. I am really excited, but I feel pressure to get everything ready and all these grown up decisions made before I go. I am hoping that I can go and relax.

My house looks like a war zone, and I am sure that isn't helping my mood. I know that is something that I can fix right now and will make a little difference. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.

Oooo glad nothing was broken. The fact he is okay after a few days is a really good sign. Hang in there...my heart is with you.

At least now you have the comfort of knowing the doctor gave him the all-clear.
