good

Sorry I left my blog on a bad note for such a long time. It seems I'm using this to vent, which makes it awful to read. I need to share my good emotions because they far outweigh the bad.

This past week I:

-Repented.

-Got released from my young womens calling. I'm going to miss those girls like crazy. It was a sad day.

-Cut my hair. All the research says the hair wont fall out completely like with chemo, just thin a lot. It feels thicker now that its short. I'm happy with it.

-Bought tickets to see my sister in Ohio and left the next day. This is where I sit right now. I love the Midwest. Its pretty even in March.

-Shopped at a Cincinnati Gap clearance center. Averaged $3 and item. Most fun Ive had in a long time.

-Started reading three different books: A New Earth (very interesting and humbling. lots of truth, some error.), Alice in Wonderland (not sure about this one yet, it seems so silly.), and the Analects by Confucius (Im interested in this guy after reading A New Earth).

This week will take me home. I love it there.

sounds like you are having a great time and good for you. I thought you looked amazing at James's party and was totally impressed at you getting out there and playing the games.. Austin had a blast, by the way!!

I don't think you sound as negative as you think you do, sis. Bry asks if it's not too late to bring her home some Gap merchandise (just kidding).
I can't wait to see the haircut—maybe you should bring Babe and the boys up one of these days (like Tuesday or next Tuesday?). You could go do whatever and we'd watch them.

I want a pic of the haircut! :) I think you need to come a little more eastern and see DC. Have fun!

A trip away and shopping and a few good books! What more could a girl need to lift her spirits? We miss you too in YW! Jennifer asked where you were today.

Well, sounds like some well deserved fun. I'd love to see your hair cut. I keep going back and forth. You know, being pregnant and all, what can one do to make themselves feel pretty? So maybe after the baby, who knows. Glad you got a break.

Fun you got to go on a little trip, did you go by yourself or the whole fam? I dont know what happened to my comment I thought i left on your last blog, it must be somewhere in cyberworld. But I just think you are one of the most gorgeous women I know thick or thin hair, you have got one beautiful face! Have fun with your sister, I want to go visit mine!

Josh and Luke say your hair is adorable, can't wait to see it! Oh, and if you're wondering where your blue pair of earrings and black shirt went, I borrowed them. I will return them shortly. Love ya!

Sonja said...

Thanks for all your help keeping me sane here in my life of chaos. My kids loved having you and it meant the world to me. I miss you already.

Mary said...

So glad you didn't commit suicide or something! I was beginning to wonder. Please post a pic of the shorter hair - I would love to see. I can't even picture it, but I'm sure you look fab!

I Like your hair it looks cute. Now that your back home I hope you can do good and not get so sick and so runned down. I sure the boys liked seeing Mom again yes its nice to spend a week with Dad but Mom allways makes it good and keeps them on there toes.
I hope you have a good easter this year I know it's early but I hope it is good weather and you can sit back and have some fun.
