Serenity NOW!

They say that which doesn't kill us makes us stronger. I should be as strong as freakin' Hercules after all this.

The sun'll come out tomorrow and all that jazz. Tomorrow is another day.

What I'm saying is that I feel better today. I think I need to take this opportunity to say that I sometimes use this blog as an emotion dump. I think everybody in my real life is sick of hearing me worry about this stuff (not that you guys AREN'T! heh.) and this is a convenient place to just dump everything I'm thinking and feeling.

After my last "woe is me" post, Mr. Daddy asked me "Why do you put all that stuff out there for everybody to read?"

"It makes me feel better for one," I said. "Also, I got at least two "YES, me too!" comments. So it helps me feel like I'm not alone in this and maybe by posting that I'm helping somebody ELSE feel like they're not alone either."

"Oh. Yeah. I can see that," he said.

And that right there, in a nutshell, is why I still blog, even if only occasionally.

I meant to go back all day yesterday and leave you a supportive comment :) but I never managed to. Sorry about that, and that you're having a tough time. I use my blog as a emotional dump, too sometimes. It's stress-release, just getting it all OUT of the brain and onto a page. (screen, whatever.) ;)

Hope you have a good day.

This roller coaster of parenting is exhausting! And can we women help it that this stuff comes flying out of us when it's all we think about, all. of. the. time? Those little ones are our treasures, and we hurt when they hurt, and we worry, and worry around and around. Men don't process the way we do. But I get it. I do. So vent away, my friend!

The support does help. Even if it's from people we don't really "know"!
