If you ain't got nothin nice to say...

You should probably shut the heck up, but I won't. Because isn't that what blogging is about?

I haven't blogged lately because I just can't think of anything nice to talk about.

I am tired and grouchy.

I am still not healthy, the stupid swine flu kicked my butt. My asthma, that had been dormant for the past three years, is raging.

I am depressed about the miscarriage(s).

And then this weekend, BOTH, yes I said BOTH, of our cars broke down. Luckily dh's car was a pretty easy fix. The van on the other hand is a mess. It started on Saturday morning, when my brake light was randomly flashing. Later that night the radio started rapidly flying through stations. And right as we got on the interstate the freaking thing overheated. Well I think it overheated, the gauges were going up and down. Anyway I think it's possessed.

It's sitting in the mechanic's shop as I type this. I have no idea how the hell we are going to PAY to get it fixed. AGAIN.

Sheesh I sound miserable.

Luckily through all this there are bright spots.
1. My husband (I know it's cheesy, but he is really awesome)
2.Noah is THRIVING in school. He is becoming more and more like a typical kid everyday. It gives me chills.
3.Jordan is doing great in school too. I think having a male teacher really lit a fire in him to learn and he is reading like a pro now.
4.Isaiah...well that kid is a freaking treasure all around. He is so smart is scares me.
5.My knee is working about 80% of the time now. Which is a huge improvement.

your kids are PRECIOUS ADORABLE. you WILL make it out of this valley. and until you do, we are here for you. sometimes you just gotta get stuff out, even when it's not nice or happy. and see, you were able to turn around and see the bright spots too. that's how I know you'll get through this.

You have a lot to be thankful for! I know it's hard to see it when other stuff starts going wrong, but you are immeasurably blessed. Love you girl!

Not sure if you can feel it, but I'm giving you a super Greek Momma hug right now - those are really good by the way. I always find that when it rains, it pours - especially when it comes to motherhood. But you have the right attitude, looking at the things you have to be thankful for is always going to help you get through the crappy moments.

Thanks for all the love ladies!

You don't have to be happy all of the time, love. Blogging doesn't have to be about being happy and funny and great. It's about dealing with what you've been dealt.

Hang in there, love.

So glad the kids are doing well. The car thing stressed me out just to read about..that SUCKS! We had the computer on our Prius go out 2 weeks after warranty expired..thank god the toyota man had a heart and replaced it free for us anyway, because otherwise we would have been without a car. I'm sorry your breathing is so tough right now, that's awful. And the miscarriages..words are not enough. Sending hugs and love are not enough..just know that you are not are loved and cherished. I try to never say "I know how you feel" about really big things, because I don't believe anyone truly knows how anyone else feels, so I will say it like this..Bean and I have both had heart ACHES for are stronger than you know..and I wish you didn't have to be. I wish it was different for you. You're a good person and I love you. Take care of as kind to you as you are to your children and your friends. You deserve it. And if you ever need a sympathetic ear, I'm here. Day or night. ~Susan
