I wish there was a way for me to accurately explain things all the time instead of words getting caught up in my head and mouth.  Alas, I'm unable to say things right sometimes.

I'd also like to be able to see how things will turn out even 4 weeks from now...but I guess everyone would want that.  Duh.

This weekend was pretty fun.  Went to trivia on Thursday and a movie on Friday night.  New Thor was WAY better than the first one.  WAY better.  Everyone seemed to like to pretty well.  Went out on Saturday and got some fabric and crafty stuff.  I've got to find some stuff to occupy my mind.  Making Delilah a dress soon.  I don't have the energy to right now.  Spent Saturday night at home and Sunday at church+running errands.  

Nothing really exciting to report.  Hopefully I'll be able to get out and about this weekend too.  I'm trying really hard to keep myself occupied and do things for myself.

Down week.

I've been pretty down this week. 
Lots of stuff going through my head, and not a real way of getting it out to make sense.

So after a couple of really bad days, I decided that if I can't fix the problems or whatever myself, I COULD do things to actively make myself feel better. 
Step one was easy.  My kid is awesome and makes me smile every single day.
Ok, come ON.  Our church directory picture.


Step two was to do something to make myself feel purdy.
Umm, why haven't I been getting funky colors?  I'm not a white tips kinda girl.  Time I get back to myself.

Step three was to get outside.
A walk in the woods with my lovey and my dogs was good for the spirit.


Step four was to have one of my best friends over for talking&wine.

We ran out of wine.


I appreciate the people in my life.
I miss the people I don't talk to or see much of.
I have to make a conscious effort to be happy sometimes, and I know that everyone has to do that now and again.
I have to remember that things could ALWAYS be worse.  In the moment, things always seem worse than they are.  Gotta pray.

In case you needed to see what a tender hearted baby looks like, here's Delilah when she's unable to play with her Grandpa and give him hugs because he's sick.  She told me that she's really sad because he was sick.

He didn't have supper with us for 3 days because he didn't want to get everyone else sick, and she was so darn concerned about him she just couldn't contain her sadness.  I just freaking love her tender caring heart.  She is so much like me.  

Step 5 is a shopping day out with my mom and Delilah.  I'm looking for a new sectional or living room set, and we're gonna go out to eat as well.

Rainy Days

It's been gloomy here this week.  I usually like gloomy gray days, but I've had such a heavy heart for days now.  

I've been doing some Christmas shopping and started planning Delilah's 2nd birthday.  Not ready to announce the theme yet.  I still have some weird lurkers who come to read my blog.  

First time trick r treating!

She was ready to get candy...which she didn't care about once we got home.

First stop!

I was Princess Peach!

On my way out with friends!

Chip was...something.

I met a Bowser who had a costume made out of balloons!

Danny and Sandy were there too, looking super keen.


The most fun!

Reading me a book

Our church directory picture.  The cuteness is almost overwhelming!

My friend's new baby.  Delilah was pretty thrilled.
Anyway, I guess that's all of an update I'm up to give tonight.  It's late, I'm tired.  I've been up browsing the internet while Delilah coughs in her sleep.  Having a sick toddler is not fun.  Looking forward to when this crud is over.
