Today Sucks...Yes it does........


This vacuum necklace by ballandchain says it all....as I sit here sipping my Green Tea with Honey and I am thinking to myself "Wow, this sucks." This morning the whole family piled into Lucy, and herded hubby off for the better part of the next year or so. The kids were bawling, I was blubbering, we were just a big fat mess. So I dropped the kids off at school after promising candy and ponies (no sense in us all sitting around here moping right?), thinking I'd keep myself busy doing something.......

This was at 10 AM. It's now 1 PM. Here I sit..still sipping Green Tea with Honey. Looking at all the new supplies I have hoarded over the last few weeks that are now piled around me. House cleaned, check.....Dog has gone out, check.....Retail therapy, check..........music on, check......inspiration?........ch.....oh wait..that's what's missing....

Le *sigh*

Awwww sweetie. Hang in there. You and the kids are sacrificing a lot and I appreciate more than I can say. Three cheers for your brave hubby, we need him and those like him so much right now. Thomas Paine once said: "If there must be trouble let it be in my day, that my child may have peace." Let's all pray that time comes soon.

I'm so sorry, Di. The true sacrifice is made by so very few, but I want you to know how much your husband's service and your family's sacrifice is appreciated. My step-son is in Baghdad so I know second-hand some of what you're dealing with. It's a big deal, and it *does* suck!
