Order Here, Order There, Semi-Chaos Everywhere

I haven't had time to write lately. I'm totally agreeing with Maria too. Girl, I feel your situation. I haven't even had a chance to read more than you in my RSS Reader. I will catch up on reading all your blogs, the blogs about your kids, etc, and I will love every minute of it, probably this weekend.

I swear this week has been a roller coaster ride emotionally. The weather has been awesome and not awesome - we need the rain, just not this much. The kids haven't really been out of the house like they are used to for the past three days because of the weather. Anyone with kids can appreciate that kind of stir-craziness I would think. We are all still sick on top of that too. And then the personal drama... oh the drama. Hey, yeah, kick me while I'm down. Go for it. You know I love it. (disclaimer everyone: that part about loving it... that was sarcasm. I know how hard it is to come across in this type of medium)

I am a Taurus. In the midst of all the chaos this week I decided to seize control of something just so I could feel more grounded. So I organized my email. And my RSS Reader. I re-categorized everything. It was refreshing. I know, how life changing, right? I also got my hair cut. Small changes can have big rewards. I even decided to go through some old photo albums of photos and cards that people have sent me. See the joy of being a pack rat is that I keep things, all the Birthday & Christmas cards and photos since I got married, and I can take them out and remember the good times when people told the truth and like, you know, considered others. A friend was telling me just last week that I should purge things like this, old Christmas cards, etc. That I should reclaim my closets. I mean what does it matter that I have holiday cards for like the last 7 years? But today, those old cards brought me great comfort and put a smile on my face. It's all about finding your footing.

Hehehe, craft day! I love cards and letters and keep all that. Who needs closet space? You'll just fill it up with other junk ;)
