Hope you are all doing well.
What are your plans for the Fall?
Karol, love the new fall siggy! So cute!
It was an okay weekend?
The dinner out on Friday night was fine?
I honestly was tired and not that into it after about 2 hours?
I felt like I was pretty quiet and didn't have much to add to the conversation?
I have a hard time hanging out with "the instigator" unless it's just the two of us. She is such a showboat that I get weary of it all quickly?
Saturday was the Fall Festival?
It was fine. The weather was rainy and icky out, so everything was inside for it?
Shelly was apprehensive about her princess debut. I have photos on the blog?
While we were there, John was in a cranky mood and that made me annoyed with him?
Saturday afternoon I came home and I watched a Lifetime movie (curled up on the bed all by myself)---something I haven't done in about 7 years!!!?
Yesterday I went to church for the first time since my mother's death?
I have been avoiding it because of the emotions I was concerned about having once I was in the church?
It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it might be. I'm glad I went?
Then we ran a couple of errands and had lunch at Steak 'N Shake?
Later in the afternoon we went to a
...Karol, don't even worry about it ~ we all have days, periods like that!?
...I know I've had more than my fair share?
...I hear you on being exhausted by certain people?
...and wtf is right about your neighbor removing your trees?!?
...was John ticked?
...did he let the neighbor know that you don't appreciate him tresspassing and overstepping his boundaries?
...girl...mm...that would TICK me off?!?
...and that is SO wierd?!?!
...did he take your cherry tree too?!?
Did you know...
...Karol, cute new siggy?
...wtf with the trees?
...Karol, I wish I could see your siggy at work?
...I'll have to check it out when I get home?
...don't feel bad about being funky?
Kelley, I have thought of this several times over the last week and keep forgetting to mention it?
Do you think substituting would be something you might want to try?
Not sure what the requirements are in your area, but it might be a good option while you are looking for something else?
Hope you are feeling better soon. But take it easy and know that this is the place to come to share your feelings with us?
Thanks ladies for the reassurance that my feelings about being called in the morning to sub aren't completely nutty?
You guys really make me feel better?
We think that the neighbor did take down the first tree, as well?
The trees sat on our property between the two yards?
The guy is a recluse and a complete weirdo?
The wife is equally as nutty?
Anyway, John was way too nice to them. I rarely see them, but if I do I think I may have to say something to them?
Christol and Missi, have
Karol, honestly in all the years I have known you, you've never been a "downer". So go ahead and be down if you want. We're here to listen.
It sounds like you are just having a hard time with the transition to both girls being in school.
I get really anxious a lot about big changes too. Sometimes to the point where I want to cry in bed at night. Even when I was working everyday, on Sunday nights I still felt all anxious about Monday morning. So yeah imagine me being a sub. LOL!!!
That IS really weird about your cherry tree and the other tree. Things that make you go hmmmmmm. People are strange!
Re; the church thing...Karol and Kelley. After my friend's memorial at the church (no casket). It was really like a celebration of life. I decided that's what I want. I don't want a funeral. I don't want people staring at my dead body in a casket. No thanks. So I let Regina know that. I want a celebration of life in my church, no viewing, no "funeral". Then my loved ones won't forever remember me in a casket. JMHO
Kelley, I'm sorry the pills aren't covered under your insurance. I hope you can get that squared away soon so you won't feel so depressed.
Christol, church is definitely my source of comfort. Honestly, I can physically feel all of my stress lifting away during worship there. A good walk helps me out a lot too. ;)
The Saturday morning practices sound brutal. Yuck!
We had dinner tonight with my mom, brother, SIL and nephew.
My mom can hardly handle all the commotion.
My SIL kept saying "Eli is so overwhelmed". I think it's more like her being overwhelmed. LOL
I love having them here though. I'm going to be so sad when they leave.
Tomorrow my mom and I are watching Eli while they go to Grand Rapids. I'll post pics soon.
Hope everyone has a great Tuesday.
...I had so much fun with Missi yesterday?
Christol and Missi, how fun for you guys. I am so jealous of your time together. I was thinking of you both yesterday?
Carmen, sounds like so much fun being with Eli and the whole gang. Can't wait to see the pictures from their visit?
I'm with you on the casket thing. We didn't have a viewing for my mom. She was cremated and we had a memorial service at the church. It was simple and special. My sisters,my dad, and I
