(Here are my nasty herbs. I have to swallow three spoonfuls of this gross powder three times a day. I just mix it in my mouth with some liquid and swallow. I don't even know what's in it, but my friend says he can smell ginseng. For all I know it could be poison, or illegal substances, or dirt. Going from taste, I would say it's dirt.)
The prosecutor in Justin's case refuses to make a deal (he's new which makes him nervous to go against the cops to make a deal and it also makes him cocky). We are going to a jury trial near the end of April.
Justin will lose his driver's license for 90 days starting next month.
Ten days after we purchased the truck, it died. The dealership won't do anything for us. It needs an alternator.
Justin got a pay cut at work.
Some pressure has been put on Justin at work because of this DUI thing. He's had to stop seeing certain clients because their probation officers are being weird.
Between skyrocketing legal fees, car repairs, new student loans, Justin's kidney troubles and hospital tests, my upcoming fertility treatments, and a pay cut, our finances are starting to seem impossible.
No news on our adoption.
Yesterday at the bank there was a lady freaking out and swearing at the teller. Apparently I stared at her and she went off the hook and called me the dirtiest, most explicitly horrible, worst names I've ever been called and said shockingly horribly things to me. And this happened to be in front of my husband. Who got pretty darn close to decking her. Which she totally deserved, but was illegal. It shook me up for the rest of the day.
My herbs taste horrible!
And despite all that, I am content. I feel like the happiest, luckiest girl in the world. I am so in love with my Justin. We totally have each others' back, something that has been proven a lot lately. There seems no reason to not be freaking out right now, but somehow, through a lot of prayer and faith, I am cool as a cucumber.
I saw this quote on a friend's blog and it is exactly how I feel.
"Sometimes God calms the storm and sometimes God lets the storm rage and calms His child."
