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.

  3. Way to go on the 3.5 lbs! Amazing!

    Hope you're feeling good and happy and loved, friend. Looking forward to next Wed!
