The days are flying by so fast with little time for me to reflect. Today we woke up in the parking lot at Cracker Barrel. We had dinner there the night before after a harrowing experience where we literally felt that our lives might have been in danger.
Today was spent at the Wagon Wheel Flea Market; an exhausting endeavor. We have been able to pick up a few Christmas gifts for the kids in the past few days, so that’s been nice.
Doing the shuffle every night has been really tiring. I feel like we spend hours looking for a spot, scouting it out, and setting up, even when we have a place all lined up. That is the part that is really hard for me. That, and the constant stress from injuries. I’ve already been to the ER and the walk in clinic, and have three children with visible contusions on their faces. I can only imagine what people think!
Despite being told by three different medical providers that she needed to be seen not only in an ER, but that it was important that we take her to be seen in a children's hospital, they did nothing more than admire her laceration before sending us on our way.
