Since all this crap happened on Sunday with Josh Powell, I've felt pretty devastated. And...shocked. Just wondering how such a terrible tragedy could happen. Those poor children. His wife. It's just so sad. And, honestly, since then, I've just held my kids a little tighter. I guess I feel a little peace knowing that the children are with their angel mother, but what happened to them still makes me sick. I hate when tragedy hits so close to home. I don't know why - I just needed to say that - but I'm going to move onto something less depressing now. :)
This afternoon nothing particularly stellar happened, but it was...just nice in a casual, laid back sort of way. I got together with my sisters, and we did absolutely nothing but drink Diet Coke and eat brownies and talk and talk. There's not that many people that I am comfortable just sitting with and doing, well, nothing, but I'm happy that with them, I am content and just okay to talk and laugh and relax and let my guard down a bit. I'm glad I have somewhere I can go to figure out how to just be me, and be okay with that. With them I will never be in short supply of laughter - and not just the muted, controlled, polite laughs, either - I'm talking about the cackle out loud, crack up, burst out laughing kind. We all need People in our life like that, huh?
I think poor Miss Mila is coming down with something. She has a low-grade fever and is unfortunately MAD. I hate when my little kidlets are sick. They're miserable, and their misery makes me miserable too. I just hope no puking or diarrhea happens. That's THE WORST. Call me an unenthusiastic mother, but when I'm cleaning explosive diarrhea off my kid's back, or scrubbing puke off the carpet, I am perpetually grimacing. There's none of that "Put your shoulder to the wheel, push along, do your duty with a heart full of song," stuff. There's no getting around the fact that bodily excrements SUCK. Especially when they smell and are not yours.
Well, not much else I guess. Just a regular old boring day here at my house. Hope everybody is having a great Tuesday - wasn't last night glorious with all the Bachelor drama? Ah, be still my heart, I loves...
