Self Pitty

My Dad was here this past week helping us get our house ready to sell. One of the projects he completed was a new deck complete with railing and custom made gate. It's really just a large outdoor playpen, but don't tell the kids that, they think they're free when they go outside.

I've been wallowing in the depths of despair all day, feeling keenly the absence of family around us. Our friends and church have been so supportive, but like Tamara says, even good friends can't replace family. Wiping away tear and moving on....

That said I wanted to take a minute to highlight some of the things that made me feel better on this dreary dismal day:

1. Sharing a Starbucks hot chocolate with my 2 year old.

2. Reading This, this, and this.

3. Watching movies based on Jane Austin books.

4. Eating my weight in Chocolate Chip Canolli.

5. Thinking about exercising. Not actually exercising, just thinking about it.
