Summertime and the Living is Easy

(Flowers From Chuck)

Well the title pretty much sums it up. So far this summer has been quite relaxing. Chuck and I have spent lots of time taking long walks and just enjoying Fiona in the Air Conditioned Bliss of our apartment.

I am not quite sure why I have been neglectful to my blog, for some reason I am having mixed emotions about it. I keep writing posts and not publishing them... I still love all of you though, and blog stalk you often. I have been taking lots of photos though which you can find on my Facebook page if you want to snoop on me. I have just been in deep contemplation the last few weeks. Partly because I had my first female emotional meltdown in a long time. It was intense... I felt like I was drowning in a sea of irrational thoughts and it seemed that everything in my life suddenly became a huge crisis. I was scared to open my mouth for fear that fire and daggers would be emitted directly at my sweet sweet husband.

I called my mom in a panic, and she said that I should avoid talking about ANYTHING serious. (Great Advice) So I gave Chuck the silent treatment, which I felt bad about but was a necessary evil, as I waited for the crabbies to pass. I did some emotional release grocery shopping, took a power walk, ate a lot of Kettle Corn and pizza, and stayed away from sharp objects.
So crazy how hormones can change your personality and perspective on life. My husband bought me flowers and chocolate as a peace offering... what a genius! And my internal storm eventually passed on by. And none of the stuff I was all worked up about seemed like a big deal... well except my kitchen towel "dilemma" which has since been solved :)

Today I get to hang out with the cute little 8-11 years old girls from church, it is part of my new church calling. I put on activities for them twice a month. Today we are making friendship bracelets and enjoying frozen smoothies.

What a great summer this is turning out to be.

Sorry to hear you were having a hormonally-crazed hard time last week. So nice of Chuck to bring you flowers and chocolate, though! I LOVE flowers and chocolate.

Hope you're feeling better now.

We definitely need to run again!

Oh tacy, we need to talk. I can relate to this post more than you know!

Welcome to the post partum nasties. I get that way from time to time and find that it corresponds to certian times of my female schedule....I hate it as well. I'm sure the doctor could give me a pill or something, but I'm not intrested in taking a pill. Your mom is right, just don't talk to anyone, and take deep breaths. :)

Tacy, we had our little "talk" about this, so I'll spare you a repeat, but just know that having hormonally charged crazy moments in no way overshadows your wonderful, loveable self! Go easy on yourself, don't take it too seriously (unless you feel you want to harm someone or yourself). There is a scripture in the New Testament somewhere that I remember reading when I was a baby in the Gospel, but it comforted me a lot...I don't know the chapter and verse, but to paraphrase it, "illnesses and weakness of the flesh are a part of this mortal life, and sometimes we learn lessons from it, so the Lord doesn't spare us from what we can learn." That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it! Love you bunches.
