I'm telling you...this month has about done me in.  It has been so emotional with so much going on and I have to say, I'll be glad when things settle down just a bit. 

I've kind of felt a balloon that was once full of air, bouncing along doin' what balloons do until along comes a mean, frowny clown and lets the air out.  It just falls to the ground in a wrinkly, cold, stretched out blob of rubber.  That's me this week.  My mind is mushy and tired from over thinking and over worrying and I feel deflated. 

I've been chatting with my niece via email and we were discussing some not so fun things she has gone through recently and she said something that made me stop and think.  It was very inspiring and I was glad for her bit of wisdom.  She said, "It's either science or God so why worry?"  What an interesting thought!

It's not like that's a completely new concept for me but hearing it in the way she said it, made me pay more attention.  There really is nothing I can do, nothing I can predict and nothing that will change our circumstances right now and all the worry in the world is not going to get me anywhere.  Why is it so much easier to say than to do?

I think I'm getting my second wind back so maybe that means you won't have to hear my whining anymore.  You can only hope...although, school is out next week...Ugh!  How to keep these kids busy?
