Let it Go

We had big plans for this weekend.

We planned a much needed weekend away, without the kids. A little cabin in the woods, snuggled in a blanket, watching the snow fall and hanging out with friends.

Instead, Danny woke up Thursday morning not feeling well. A few hours later I joined the party. We were miserable. There is a stomach bug running rampant in our city and we got it. We begged my family to come pick up the boys since we could hardly even get out of bed. By the end of the day we knew we were going to have to call it quits in the trip.

The next day we felt a little better but still not great. We decided that we would at least try to make some use of our weekend by going to look at a few cars to replace our car that was recently totaled in an accident. We found a car online that we were pretty interested in and wanted to go check out.

We woke up to snow. Real, falling down, sticking, snow. We had high hopes that we would also be back to our normal health, but that hasn't gone as planned either. We scrapped the car shopping for now. We are taking turns laying in bed and trying to decide if it's worth it to attempt the store for our empty cupboards.

The whole weekend has been disappointing. I was desperate for some quiet time away. All I can think is that I need to let it go. I'm trying to not be super irritated about the whole thing. All I can do is hope that this is God's way of helping us wait for his plans. That maybe there's something we need to wait for. That maybe there is something better coming. Let it Go.

Frustrating, yes. End of the world, no. Let it Go.

To be continued....?

  1. I feel your pain...from being on bedrest, 5 days in the hospital and now home for the past 3 weeks with a newborn and a 3.5yr old...I need to get out of the house (and not for a doctor's appointment or to the grocery store). And our washer just took a dump! Hope you all feel better soon and you are able to get the car that you need!
