Treading Water (which I updated before I posted it)

That's exactly how I feel. Like I'm doing everything I have to just to keep my head above water.

1. A post about my mom that's sitting in drafts. Maybe I'll hit publish tomorrow, maybe not. Haven't spoken to her all week. Must shore up the defenses first.

2. The town wants to put the new police station in the park next door to my house. Basically it amounts to uber annoying lights coming in through my daughter's bedroom windows all night. And extra traffic because no matter what they say the buildout is projected for twenty years which puts us to the size of the town next door - and their police station? Is kind of busy.

3. My husband made a decision that will totally keep us in the same financial straits that we're in now. Super.

Updated Sunday evening to add:

Well, I guess yesterday it was all half empty over here. Today it's better - but marginally. Mostly because I've got to accept what I can't change and just move on. No use dwelling, right?

It's those circumstances that we cannot control that drive us over the edge.

I'm here for you.

Sounds like a bad week. Hopefully, things will improve soon.

Hugs, hugs and more hugs. And perhaps some chocolate. But lots of hugs mainly.

It is on days like this that you have to find some small morsel of blessing to focus on. Perhaps your kids said something endearing (perhaps, I said PERHAPS!!! - just kidding!) perhaps there is a bunch of flowers at the market that are just crying your name and need to be in a vase on your table. Maybe there's a book you've been wanting to read that needs to take you out to the yard and let you read in the sunshine for a bit. Something. Some morsel of something.

If nothing else, know that I think you rock. Today and every day.

half empty gives you room to fill it back up. I'm not in the happiest of places at the moment either, but we will prevail!!!
