The Consequences of Low Cash Flow

Less money equals more stress. Many marriages today are weathering the lack of funds - including mine! Tensions run high, and tempers & patience run thin. I'm sure many out there feel my pain and can relate - huh? I have to remind myself -Remember Tina, "for better or for worse"!! All too many bail under the later of the two. When things are really crudy, I have a mantra I repeat over and over to myself... "The darkest hour is before the dawn". So here is a bit of "dawn" - last night, I was in my back craftroom. I heard my hubby's truck pull down the driveway, but since I've been fueding with him, I paid no attention. Not long after, he walks into my craftroom with a folded handtowel and asked to blindfold me. "Why" I ask. He said "I have a surprise and I don't want you to peek". Begrudgingly I comply... he guides me down the hall and thru the laundry room... and when I take off my blindfold this is what I see in the garage.





Needless to say this melted my steely disposition towards him. Earlier this week, he'd been asking to take me camping this weekend, and said that he wouldn't go w/o me... I would not commit since I was still hurt & mad. Apparently, he hussled up some work to buy a couple Schwinn Beach Cruiser's for us to meander the campgrounds with. Sweet huh! So all is good again... San Elijo - here we come!

Wow, what a sweet gesture! I can tell from the smile on your face that all is forgiven. You look adorable on that bike! Yes, Damon and I know the burdens of finances as well and I really do feel for you. I just hope that the light at the end of the tunnel comes sooner than later, right?

I hope you guys have a wonderful vacation!

Miss you,
Christine

Love the story, your bike, garage and your husband! Simply awesome! Where'd he purchase them? I have a vintage style bike that is red and white. But my poor hubby doesn't have one. Hang in there, for better or for worse!
