My Feelings

I haven't had much to write about or discuss because I've been at times numb and at others completely overwhelmed with sadness and exhaustion.  A lot of it is just saved up stress from how we've spent the last year, in limbo, with sad stressful events seemingly always around the corner.

I live a very quiet, somewhat plain suburbia life now, but my traumatized-by-the-stress brain hasn't figured that out.  I'm dealing with high level anxiety, obsessiveness, and lots of crying.

Today is a good day.  That is why I am writing about it.  I love keeping a blog because I like to feel like I can connect my life with others.  I appreciate those who read every day.  I appreciate hearing from you any time I can.  Thanks to all who "chat" with me.  I'll share more posts about our house progress (that'll be keeping us busy for years to come it seems!) but I'd also like to share my feelings too.

Wishing you the best in YOUR neck of the woods!


  1. Sorry it's been such a stressful time. I hope that things continue to stay settled down for you. We miss you around here- that's for sure. And tell Shae that I miss her in Activity Days. :)

  2. yes, please do share your feelings. Sending you lots of warm fuzzy hugs. After the four crazy years of building our house (way more traumatic than expected) life in my neck of the woods is settled, but only for us five, the extended family still has their own craziness to deal with. We all have times when it's our turn to feel like the weight of the world is on us.

  3. 2009 was the most stressful year of my life. I spent a good part of 2010 trying to recuperate from that trauma of it all. Here's hoping you'll regain some peace and comfort.
    I certainly believe that there are times when you just survive and once you are in a safe place, you have time to process your experiences and crash for a time. I also believe in the buoyancy of the spirit and feel like most people can make a come-back.

  4. Take care of yourself!
