Ups and Downs

Guess who saw an albino squirrel while driving today?!  If you've been reading for awhile, you know why that's a big deal.  If you haven't, here's why.  I must say, I was really needing that albino squirrel.  I have to be honest with you all, I've really not been feeling like myself lately.  For the last few months, I have really been struggling.  I guess you could call it a little bout of depression.  Lucky for me, I've got some really supportive family and friends.  They really are amazing.  They don't mind talking to me on the phone during the rough times, sending me supportive text messages and emails just because, planning trips to visit me, and giving me Godly advice.  I feel blessed, and I'm hoping I can get back to normal very soon.  Anyway, I don't want to over-share (Who am I kidding, I'm the queen of over-sharing), but I also want to be real on this blog of mine-- sharing what's been going on in my life through the ups and the downs.  I would greatly appreciate your prayers!

I guess this sickness hasn't helped matters.  I can't seem to kick this cold.  The girls are doing much better though (hallelujah!) and just have the lingering cough.  They were feeling really good this morning, so we went to a Valentine's themed play-date at our church.  It was nice and low key.  They did crafts, ate snacks, read books and ran around like crazy people.  It was nice to get out of the house and for the girls to get a chance to use some energy.

Celery Print Roses they made today

They made this, too.  It used to look like a flower, but it got smooshed in my purse and Kiki tried to eat it.  There's a lollipop inside, which seems to be a driving force in Kiki's life right now. 

In other news, the anchor pillow doesn't have to return to the store!  I got a text from one of my besties, who also fell in love with the pillow and wanted to claim him.  I'm so glad he's going to good home.  

Mark had to ref a basketball game, so I'm just hanging out alone tonight.  The Bachelor is on soon, so at least I'll be entertained by those crazy ladies.  This season is chalked full of insane women and it makes for some interesting television, indeed.  Goodnight!

Think everyone goes through those days (weeks, months)...use your support system! Call me if you want, I'm sure we'll talk for like 6 hours catching up ;) Will be thinking about you!

Just picked my God Thing: tulips! (too common?)

And glad the anchor found a good home...if he is ever in the orphan state again let me know! I was secretly lusting over it anyways.
