"" Three Ladies and a Dad: A break from blogging...

A break from blogging...

I am taking an unexpected break from blogging for a few days . Last night, I received word that someone else has passed away. I just don't think blogging will fit in my schedule for the next few days.

I have a visitation to attend for Jessie tonight. Tomorrow is her funeral. I am taking the whole day off work. I just don't think I will be able to work after it.

I suppose tomorrow evening I will have another visitation to go to. Then Friday will be the second funeral. (This 'time line' is something that I think will be. No definites yet.)

I never had to go to two visitations and two funerals in three days. I guess there is a first for everything.

Then on to the weekend...Saturday is Whitney's wedding. I am so happy for you Whitney. You deserve every bit of happiness that comes your way.

Sunday, I think I might be able to sleep. I am not sure how I am awake now to function. Adrenaline, I guess. I have not worn makeup in three days and I wear make-up everywhere. But, I just have not been motivated to do anything.

Kudos to you all for putting up with me. With us. Thank you for your prayers throughout everything.

I was chatting with a friend earlier and I told her I'm sorry for being selfish. I don't mean for this blog to be such a downer. I want it to be a happy place to come to. A place you can come to to get a little laughter. But given my life the last couple weeks, I have failed at that. And' I'm sorry.

With that being said, please leave a comment telling me something going on with you. Anything. I enjoy reading your comments, even if it's a simple 'Hello'. They perk me up every time.

So...how you been?

Your blog is not a "downer". Everyone has rough patches in their lives, and Lord knows you girls have been given more than anyone deserves at one time.

Camden is getting shots today. I'm not going to complain, I'm thankful I have a baby to get shots. Hard to believe he'll be 4 months old tomorrow.

Try to stay strong, cry when you need to, and we're here for you-funny or sad :)

I'm with Ashley.Your blog is not a downer its a way for you to talk about ur feeling and thats what we are all here for. You can count on any one of us to be here for you.

Nothin much goin on in my world...Just lots of wedding stuff. Cant wait till it gets here.

Alaina, I'm going to miss your blogs..I really enjoy keeping up, although I have taken a break from it myself I know how hectic life can be sometimes. You and your family are in our thoughts & prayers.

Nancy said...

I will miss reading your blogs and hope you visit mine every so often to say HI! Just remember that others might get solace from your blogs seeing how you are handling these rough areas in your life and give them strength to deal with their own - your blog shows you are human. God is right there with you - let him help you through this - take care of yourself as your little ones and hubby need you. I will pray that God gives you strenghth and helps to guide you through the next few days.

Your blog is far from a downer....there are things you can't control and sometimes life hits your hard, and in your case it came crushing down. I hope Whitney's wedding is an upper for all of you!!! You girls enjoy yourself and try real hard to have a great time..it will be beautiful I am sure.
Nothing new with me, my blogging world has been slow itself...school is kicking my butt and I wonder why I signed up but then I remember everyday I come to work :)

I do not see your blog as a downer. This is what happens in life and sometimes you just have to talk about it and let it out. (like the kleenex commercials)You know that if you need anything, Mary (Mare)aka Me,will help you out. Please call if you want to talk or if you need anything. I will see you Saturday. Try to have a good day tomorrow. After my little excitement on Monday, my days now start at 3 or 4 in the morning. I can't sleep and am so paranoid. I will have to tell you all about it sometime. This has been a week I wish never would have happened. I know it will get better though, just give it time. Love ya!

I am so very sorry for the loss you've experienced this week.
You're in my thoughts and prayers.

You don't have to apologize for your blog. I know that sometimes it is just best to get it all out. Considering everything you have gone through in the last month or so I amazed at how positive you still try to be.

Have a great time at Whitney's wedding, I am so sorry that I cannot be there. I cannot believe the wedding that I am in is on the same day! I will be thinking of you all that day!

I am helping plan my dad's 50th bday party, it is next Friday night. Any suggestions? You always have such good ideas. I am not very creative, I wish I were.

Take care Alaina. If you need anything or just want to have an ear I am always available even if it is work time. Miss you lady!

Alaina I haven't seen or spoken to you in quiet sometime, but my sis works on the same floor as Whitney and I have several friends who knew Jessi. I just want to say to you and your sis that I am soo incredibly sorry for your loss and for everything else that has been going on. I was reading through and you have been through ALOT!! You are an incredible person and you are sooo strong. You will get through all of this and if you need anything please let me know I will do anything at all I can for you and your family. Keep you head up and have a wonderful day at Whitney's wedding Sat.

Hey Alaina. I really hope things start going better for you. I've been thinking about you...all of us at the bank have. It will get better. Just wanted to tell you that you have inspired me to make a blog....now I'll be a maniac blogger with a very messy house. I'll see you next week..have a good time Sat.
