I'm having a moment...

Ever have periods of time pass where you feel like you are being stretched pretty thin, but know that you need to be thankful anyways and try to maintian a positive attitude just to get you through? Well, I am having a moment tonight. The positive attitude is a little shaky and I'm just starting to crumble...

Chris has been gone for two weeks, (the kids are killin me) the house is up for sale (the kids keep demolishing it) I feel really overwhelmed with my responsibilities at church; it's sorta hitting me that we are completely changing our lives again 'for reals', We still have no word on the job situation and that may take a while to hear back, and Chris just called me tonight to tell me he will be home on Saturday and Sunday, but will be leaving again for two more weeks. I just feel a little lonely in my trials at the moment. I guess I just feel so stressed out and wonder when we will be settled somewherefor once in our marriage. It feels like we have just been through the wringer for the last 6 years! I know I could complain more, but I will spare you all.

Not to sound like I am going to jump off a bridge or anything, I just know that it is fine to let down our guard sometimes, and reach out for support by letting friends know you need it.
So BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHA!

(sniff) Ahh, now I feel better. Thanks for listening.

Keep your chin up!
You're amazing!
My husband leaves tomorrow, so if you want to walk over and we'll feel sorry for ourselves together, be my guest.

I'll listen anytime too! I think you've been a good sport! I had so much fun Friday night at your place...so next time your lonely just gather the troops again!
Someday you'll look back at this time period and be amazed that you did it all!

Man, if I'd only known. Trav's been out of town all week - I would have flown...no, no I wouldn't have. I would have driven...no, I wouldn't have done that either. I for sure would have called. Jenny, my friend, I hope your life gets settled in a hurry. I love you!

Oh, Jenny! I was so wrapped up in my own problems that I didn't even ask how you were doing. I'm so sorry! Let's do another girls night (or day?) sometime this week.
