No More Mrs. Whiny Pants
My family. Lily looking sweet while the boys ignore me. Please note my fab husband is in the
background doing dishes! Love him.

All right. Starting now I am back to my regular blogging schedule, and I will allow myself one day a week to report on the doldrums we're currently experiencing. One day a week to flame out and cry. That should be enough. The rest of the week I'll be blogging like it's 1999--or something close to that.

We had no school on Friday, but the girls Volleyball team from David's school made it to the state finals, so Friday and Saturday were spent at the Denver Coliseum watching multiple volleyball games. Our team placed second in the state, and we all lost our voices cheering them on.

Last night my friend Tesi hosted the Wine to Water event in her hometown. If you have not met Tesi, I recommend you find some time in your life to do so. She rocks the entire world. I can't wait to hear all about the event and hear how much money they raised to bring clean drinking water to those who need it most.

I have also, FINALLY, updated Bridget's link in my "Places I Go..." section. You definitely want to check in with her because she is DAYS away from going to Ethiopia for the first time and meeting her son. I am all aflutter with joy for her. Her adoption journey has been unbelievably grueling. It's a great occasion to break open some champagne.

Thanks for all your continued love and support. I love you right back!

Thank you, sweet friend. I am hoping to find my wits somewhere around here (which are clearly not found in my tears) so I can blog about it. Instead I'm checking in with my favorite people. :)

I have no doubt the way you've blogged the last few weeks/month has helped many people in blogworld. Please know what you might think is the doldrums or what have you hasn't been to those of us who love you! :)

Good to have you back Cathy! I really enjoy reading your blog and your perspectives about life...I'm sorry you are having trials at this time in your life...know that people are praying for you...stay strong!

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that not one of your readers thought of you as whiny. Nevertheless, I hope that forcing some "normal-old-days" routines will help you feel more like yourself again. Here's to the little things.

Oh!!! You are so sweet! Thank you, Cathy!

I thought you were maybe winey, but never whiny.

Booze is always good for the soul. Not so much for the liver.
