so i'll get personal. then i'll sort of throw it out there & not really care what people think. this blog is for me. i write for me. i share things, for me. and when people join in and want to be friends, that's definitely a perk! but blogging is not something i have to do. it's something i want to do. i want to document my marriage. the goods, the bads, the uglies, and the unforgettable moments. so today, i'll share all about my week.
first, i was struggling dealing with trying to find a doctor that wasn't too expensive, yet knew exactly what he was doing...which isn't really possible. i haven't had any luck with doctors. each and every single one i have been to hasn't cared about me. they just prescribe you whatever, say, "try that" and send you on your way. i truly believe there are good doctors out there. i just gotta find one. so it stressed me out. to the max. i found a doc, have an appointment TODAY (whoot!) and also believe and know that you can't put a price on your health or big problems. you just can't. even if it means paying it off for the rest of your life.
so there it was. my doc appointment. i was excited. mr. schroeder & i went to park city last weekend to get away from the world. the town was dead, we had it to ourselves, and we relaxed. it was perfect.
i found out i was having car issues. i took it in, and 4 things needed to be done to it. wellp, there goes my paycheck. but it's okay! it's fine! we got it.
then, i find out our pin # was compromised in mexico...at the same atm we used when we went there. the bank lady was a major beeotch, exclaiming that it might not be possible to get that money back. $400 later...i'm still waitin on that moolah.
i have to pay for school within 6 days. without financial aid. we'll see how that one goes.
aaaand last night, i dropped mr. schroeder's truck off to go pick up my own car, he goes to pick it up, and it's gone. completely gone. we thought it got stolen. but no, some losers sit around all day waiting for people to park in an EMPTY parking lot that isn't being used so they can tow them away. we were one parking spot over from being "cleared." hmm.
so between finding a good doctor, stressing out over the health stuff, getting our bank account drained, getting my car fixed for lots of moolah, having to pay for school, and paying a butt load of money for towing mr. schroeder's truck one block away, life is stinking good. it still is.
despite this insane week, i think the man upstairs is giving me what i asked for. i asked for opportunities to strengthen my faith. and that's exactly what He has given me. i was and still am comforted and at peace. mr. schroeder is the best at pep talks. he tells me, "these are all super small things. we're going to have to go through a lot bigger trials. and all this will make us stronger."
i guess it's just hard. one sucky thing happens, 10 sucky things happen. but at the same time, my marriage is exactly where i want it. i love mr. schroeder & the love we share. he makes me so happy. the other day, i told him that nobody has EVER made me smile the way he does...and nobody ever will. he was like, "REALLY?" well, duh. he is just amazing. i don't deserve him. i'm sure of it.
