Thank goodness the weekend is over. For most, weekends are time of relaxation but not me. I started off the weekend teaching, and by the time I was done on Saturday afternoon, I came home and crashed in bed. Then I had to do some shopping, which I only do while Kevin's home to watch the kids because it's just too hard to lug 3 kids around. Sunday morning, we went to church, and then early in the evening I went out with a friend. After that, I had to meet up with the rest of the family at my in-laws' for dinner with a visiting aunt. For a homebody like me, that's a lot of activity. Which is why I'm so relieved it's Monday, when I can just rest at home with the kids. Since it's supposed to rain tomorrow, we'll probably stay in again. Thank goodness.

I'm Back

Okay, wallowing time over. Not that it wasn't a lot of fun, but it's kinda difficult to do and still keep up with the laundry, diaper changes, and basically running a household. Kids are good that way; they force you to get on with things. Anyway, it's not as if I'm dying or something (I apologize if that's how it sounded). It ain't the end of the world.

Meanwhile, my stubborness is kicking in. It's one of my biggest faults but sometimes an asset. I'm determined not to let this latest development ruin all my good plans. I'm not one of those people who thrives on constant challenges, but every once in awhile, a good one is worth it.

Mindlessly Numb

I'm all blogged out for the time being. Just not sure what to blog about. I'm facing a major upheaval, and it's consumed all my thoughts and emotions lately. I vacillate between depression, anger, and acceptance. Hopefully the depression and anger part will wane while the acceptance will get stronger. I will reveal more later, when I have things under better control. For now, I am comforted by God's promises.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
