Well, this post WAS just gonna have a funny picture of Maggie sleeping. But then, when I logged in, I noticed that it was to be my 200th post. Certainly that merited something more exciting than a Maggie shot and a mocking of her sleep style. Right? But what in the world could I possibly write that would be worthy of this monumental 200. I really have NOTHING of excitement or import to chat about. No really, it's true. I s'pose I could have FINALLY done the Greer entry, but honestly, everytime I think about that, I get a headache. There are just SO many pictures and things to comment on, it would take forever to do it. Hence we're nearing October and it still hasn't been posted. And frankly, we're so past the time, noone even cares anymore.
I could write about the ridiculous amount ot stress I feel in my life EVERYDAY, the worry and fear over having no money (which, being poor I could deal with, it's the not having prospects of any money coming in I can't), of Jere not having a job, of me not having enough students, of not having insurance, of not working out like I should, about eating too much, frustrations, etc. But NO ONE really wants to hear about THAT. It's depressing, and besides, it's MUCH easier to just ignore the problem and stress and pretend that everything is gonna be A-OK. Right? I know that I am truly blessed in so many ways, not the least of which is two beautiful and extraordinary children. A roof over our heads (for now anyway), cars that run, the students I DO have, an amazing and loving family, tremendously great friends, the Gospel, a FABULOUS new ward that I heart oh so much, running water, electricity, chocolate chips, pasta, etc. All I can do is trust in the Lord, and I'm trying, but it sure is hard sometimes when you don't see an end in sight. But alas, I shall trudge onward, persevere if you will, and with my Faith, all shall work out. RIGHT?
Here's hoping that at the next 200 there will be more hopeful things to write of. In the meantime, I'll just go back to posting cute pictures of my kids and funny stories about them, 'cause A: they're funny and B: they're cute and C: That is always more entertaining and safe to read.
Thanks to the tens of you that actually read this, for reading and occassionaly commenting and being friends and understanding that I'll get over myself in a minute.
Wah wah and patooeys,
