What has happened to human compassion? That is INSANE. I hope you at least wrote a scorching letter to the local postmaster about the inappropriate response of USPS employess.

Honey, when the kids look back on this they aren't going to think of it as the year there wasn't any Christmas decorations. They are going to think of it as the year their Dad got a Christmas miracle. And that is all that will matter. :) Don't feel like a failure not being able to maintain a "brave face". Kids need to learn that it is ok to be scared when things are scary, that it is ok to reach out to others for support, and that it is ok to not be strong all the time. It's ok to let the little things slide and focus on the big stuff...and at a time like this, it's all little stuff. Hang in have one massive hug coming next month!
If our kids' spirits are broken, it won't matter how many opportunities or programs we place in front of them. We push our kids so hard these days to meet some arbitrary definition of excelling that we forget to nurture their insides too. These are the decisions that Zach will thank you for when he is grown!

I'm looking forward to my calendar saying 2013 (and have been for a long time)...because that is when my husband is coming home! It's almost here! :)

Your life and mine are so very different but they lead us to many of the same feelings with regard to our relationships with the men that we love. Thanks for expressing so beautifully what it's like to love someone when that love comes with pain too - and more importantly, why it's worth it for the right man. Never question your strength - courage isn't not being scared. It's forging on even when you are scared. And you have done plenty of that...that is strength.

So jealous you are going to Wales...I lived there for four years in elementary school. Enjoy!

Hey Gunne Sax and Esprit are cool again...the 80's are back, didn't you hear? LOL Your third point about using what you love hit especially home for me. I am in the middle of doing a massive purge of my stash for exactly that reason. I think wading through all of the stuff that "I might use someday" is slowing down my scrapping. I've vowed to only keep the stuff I truly love. It's amazing how much stuff I've held on to because it's alright, or I just kind of like it, or I can imagine adapting it to use someday. All of that is going. I'm going to be left with my version of scrapbook heaven, where every single item I touch gets that "I ADORE that" gasp of excitement.
