Sometimes I wonder if you are all awake out there...

My comments have been dwindling to nothing. Is it my lack of witty reparte, or is it not though provoking enough?

I think I have developed agoraphobia. I hate going anywhere. And so I become more isolated. Sometimes I picture everyone in their lives, running around me on fast forward, as I sit and live each day in slow motion.

It's like being on death row, but having LOTS of last meals. :)

I am literally waiting to find out the fate of the rest of my life. It's been 8 months so far, and I have another 6 to go until I get half an answer. Even longer for the rest of it. And it's not like one option is awesome and one is terrifying. It's like, do I cover my eyes or my ears?

My situation is what it is, and it sucks, but I chose to stick through it and not bail, because that's who I am, and because I'm a little insane. But that's life. It isn't always good vs bad. Sometimes its bad vs worse. And most of the time, it's not as bad when it's over as it is when you don't know what the hell is going on in the middle.

On a brighter note, I grounded my kids today.

I made Gavin write me a report on the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone Park. A direct quote was, "Yellowstone is on top of a large lava field. That's hot! It also must be scary for Yogi the bear."

Gotta love it!

Taylor had to translate things from English to Spanish for me. He did a good job, but I think I see Rosetta Stone in our future.

See, it's the small things in life!


  1. You're such a goof! I would imagine that your dwindling comments are because of your dwindling blog posts! :) You were MIA for awhile there!

    Get back on your daily blog routine, and I'm sure the comments will come! :) We love you!

    I especially like that you gave the boys homework on their holiday break!

  2. That is a cute quote from your Gavin. I have heard good things about rosetta stone. If you get it I would love to know what you think of it.

  3. I'm here I don't comment much but I don't comment much on anyone's blog. I know how you feel being in limbo we are waiting to hear about hubby's QRB board. I hate the not knowing what will happen.

  4. Well I am here visiting from blog frog, thanks for the follow. Hey thanks for the ideas of good punishments for my children when they get disciplined! I can use all the help I can get with four!! www.questofthenocturnalbaker.blogspot.com

  5. I just read your blog post and I'm commenting! hang in there :)

  6. I'm still here. And I still think you're awesome. So. Ya. There.
