Breaking News Story!
Urgent News Update: I don't know how this will end up, or how it will work out, but it's sure a game-changer. John, the eldest, and erstwhile-resident of Mt. Ellis in Montana, is beginning an unexpected and involuntary sabbatical from boarding school. Now. As in he's already here.
Well, life does have it's little twists and turns, doesn't it? How will this change things...not exactly sure, but here are some possibilities. Since I won't have to pay tuition, I automatically have a much higher monthly income. I also have a much, MUCH smaller trailer all of the sudden. So I might (if God works a miracle, that is) be able to get a house to stay in. I'll be working on that this week.
John will be enrolling in the local school on Monday and getting to experience life in a small trailer with no phone, no computer, no TV, no shower, and no hot water. Our little trailer promotes literacy, that it does! He'll also be able to help my dad winterize the trailer since we are expecting possible snow showers on Wednesday.
I will continue to work, look for housing, and try not to have a nervous breakdown in the process. Laura will be at school trying very hard not to get sent home because I would very possibly kill her if she does, and Caleb will be in his program slogging away through the different levels. Finley will be languishing up at his Auntie's or Grandma's house, wishing I would visit more often (because he stays up there during my work week), and Anika will be trying her very best to run away constantly and wreak havoc throughout the neighborhood. The cats will be snuggled warm in their new home (my sister's) trying hard to avoid those vague and distant unpleasant memories of their former lives.
To be continued......
