I compared it to holding my breath and that is exactly what it feels like. I can't breathe....
I confided in Calvin (big mistake) that I was stressed out and thinking of visiting the doctor for a little Xanax and he got upset with me and told me not to worry about something I have no control over. He should know by now that you can't say that to a Mother. It's part of our job and our genetic make up to worry about what COULD happen. It's how we prevent bad things (as much as we can) from happening. I know from first hand experience that Dad's don't think like this...and it drives me
So....I'm going to try not to worry anymore. UGH...that felt terrible just typing it. I'm going to try to relax and I'm not going to use a bottle of wine to do it.

This was a great subject because I've been thinking a lot about what we will do if we lose our income and lose EVERYTHING.
These three things...bring me happiness and can be quite affordable if you make them yourself. I can see it now...I'll be squashing grapes in the backyard of my
I can't live without little adventures with my children. But Disney will be out. Shoot! I can't afford Disney right now. Instead we will find FREE activities, parks and go for lots of walks. That is totally affordable.
One thing that I can't live without...that is like WATER to me. Is Bobbi. I love her so much and I'm so happy to have her close by again...I'm going to be heartbroken if we have to move away.
But there is really only one thing I need...if Calvin loses his job and we have to sell everything we own and start over. If we have to live in an apartment and I have to give up my SUV. If we never get to eat out again and I have to buy the kids' clothes at
As long as I have my husband and my children...I have everything I could ever need.
Well, and some coffee. My family, some coffee and that's all I need. And some cheese. My family, some coffee, good cheese...and that's all I need. Well...and Sushi. I also need sushi.
dear baby jesus. On this day of atonement, I want to say that I'm sorry that I don't talk very nice about Utah but at this point...I'd really like to stay. And PLEASE have a chat with that Obama guy and convince him to keep the ARES project. Seriously. It needs a little more money and I talked to Alex and Mallory and they would rather pay their future tax dollars on keeping the space program alive than rescuing the auto industry. thanks!
**I was supposed to post my after pictures of my bedroom today....but much of that projects funding was cut due to the impending doom. I am still working on a few things but I'm totally NOT done. As soon as I am...I will post.**
