I'm feeling really overwhelmed this week. I heard a song the yesterday that kind of described what I'm feeling. It said something about feeling like it was raining and the sun was shining at the same time. I feel like the rain is everything going on around me in my life. At the same time, having God in my life the sun is shining and I know he's in control of it all.

I'm mainly overwhelmed by work. I'm about 4 weeks behind (soon to be 5) and just never get a chance to get caught up. I need to sneak in late sometime and work when no one else is there.

I also have 3 sick boys, but they are doing better. They have runny noses and they did have slight fevers. Thankfully Tim was on vacation this week, so he could be with them while I was at work.

I'm frustrated with the house and the lack of cleaning that I've gotten done lately. In my mind I always think about throwing everything out so that I wouldn't have to stare at piles of clutter all the time, but that will never happen and I continue to bring new things into the house!

My grandma is still in the hospital. There is not much new and I still don't think they know exactly what is going on with her. Today I'm going to try to work on getting a meal together to take over to my grandpa.

I have several friends going through really tough times right now and I just ache for them. I need to focus more on praying for them. It amazes me how many hurting people there are in the world. I don't know if I'm more aware of it than I have ever been, or if things are getting worse, or if people with problems are drawn to me.

So, that's what's going on here. Glad that I could spread a little bit of sunshine into your day!

Take a deep breath and make some ta-done lists! that little thing that you taught me has made all the difference to me. DO it with work too, it may help. I am sending you a hug, or as many as necessary.

if you get blue like we all do just think of crazy things you used to do

like taking pics while I peed in a jar
or sat while i drove a brake less car

smile when you think of those times back when
and don't let the bluey feelings crawl in
