We had a three day holiday weekend, followed by Dylan feeling under the weather so we kept him home from school, back to school for a day, followed by a snow day so needless to say I've been trying to keep all of my boys busy and not going stir crazy. Here the boys are trying out some dot painting.

So things have become a little wild around here lately but I'm not going to let that keep me down.
On the 5th of Jan. Shane got into an accident while at work. Luckily no one else was involved and he wasn't seriously hurt. However even though he wasn't doing his normal job and there was ice on the road, his company cited that he was being reckless and fired him. He is union so he is working with his representative to get a panel review to get his job back. This, however, was scheduled for six weeks out (after already being suspended for a week so that makes seven). So we now have been faced with the challenge of scrimping even tighter than we ever have before while making ends meet on some vacation pay and the social security that Dylan gets. Luckily we have taken steps to eliminate most of our debt since we have been married and were living well within our means before so I think that while this completely stresses me out, we will come through this stronger and better because of it. Shane and the boys have been able to spend more time together at home and we have been eating dinner as a family and trying to make the best out of everything.
