Hey, Christmas has come and gone and we survived (even Neb's turtle). We have a friend going through a rough time, so we are trying to be there for her. Sometimes things happen which we don't understand and they just suck, but I am learning to just trust God and go with it.
Like I have a choice either way, but at least letting the lead man run things is so much easier than being a complete control freak.
Our friends are bringing my wife and myself closer, even though the mandatory Christmas break drives her insane since she has no break from me. 24 hours a day of me piddling around the house getting nothing done drives her up the wall.
It is entertaining for the kids though.
