Emotions Runneth Over

This week has been an emotional one for me. Not in a bad way, at all, but just in a way where I'm feeling a lot and thinking about a lot and dealing with a lot. It's strange, because there is not a lot going on in my life, but there is a lot going on in the lives of my friends and I am just hyper sensitive to that now, I guess.

Yesterday was a LOOONNNNGGGG day. It's been a long week. But, the highlight of yesterday was when Paul poked his head in the door. There are a few people in the world that just make you feel more...you...by being around them. Do you have people like that? I know I do, and unfortunately, with the exception of Tim, I don't get to see them a lot. Instead, I talk to them on IM and email and the phone and try and convince myself that it is enough. But, when I see them, when I get to hug them and connect with them, it's like a piece of me that was lying dormant wakes up again. That is a wonderful feeling.

I know I won't get to see them or spend as much time with them as I would like while they're here, but that's okay. Just seeing them and spending a little time with them is refreshing. And, you know, if we have to go back to Ireland to see them (or wherever they are) I am good with that!

I am looking forward to a relaxing Saturday and gearing up for an INSANE week after that, but good insane...mostly!

(and, as a sidebar, I lost 3.5 pounds on my first week of dieting!)

  1. Just wanted you to know you have my full support with your weight loss efforts. I read your food logs and gasp. I can't imagine limiting myself that much, but I know your efforts will surely pay off. Once the baby is here I know I'll be doing a bit of cutting back myself. Until then, I'll enjoy every meal.
