So I've thought a lot about the suckiness that is going on in my life right now and if I should post about it or not. Not sure how much everyone wants to know or what is appropriate in such a forum. After much thought, I have decided to say just a bit. I figure the great majority of you that are reading this have some sort of relationship with me and are going to find out anyway. The rest of you, I guess you'll just know more about me than you probably want to =). Anyway, after 12 years of marriage, my husband decided that being married to me is something he would rather not be. I have a whole range of emotions going from sadness to shock to embarrassment to complete pissed-off-dom (another word invented by me I think). I could probably vent for about 20 pages of blog, but I won't, as the mature side of me is trying to prevail through this whole thing. The closest I'll get to venting in public is to say what I find really incredibly sad about this whole thing is that the lives of my girls and I really won't change all that much except in name. That, my friends, is sad. Once again, thanks to all who have been so supportive of me and have let me vent in one way or another. My parents, Jeannette, Angela, Scrappy Emmy...you all are awesome. And if you are the praying sort....we all could use it as the future is so uncertain, scary, painful.
Anyway, onto happier things. What am I happy about? This for one....Look at my mom. Does she not look awesome? She has lost 40 plus pounds and is still going strong!
#2: My girls. They are the joy in my life and I am so thankful for them. This photo was taken almost 2 years ago when we were in Idaho. The layout was made with the July 3 Scrappy Boys kit.
#3: It is raining. We so need the rain. The crops need the rain. My grass needs the rain.
#4: This dress. I really like it. 6 months ago I would have been able to only dream about stuffing myself into this. Now 20 pounds (!) lighter it fits quite nicely. By the way, for the record, that 20 pound weight loss was done only for ME, by MY hard work and not in response to any impending doom (see above).
Alright that is all for now. Hope everyone is having a good day.
