I know I've been quiet............I am still here. Other than my sprained ankle, I am doing great. I sprained it yesterday so I am trying to keep off it. The past month or so has been just blah-I have felt little creativity at all. Probably because pretty much last month my whole family was sick and they sucked my muse right out of me. I guess you could say I am just taking a little break! I have also had some personal struggles that I am trying to work out. One of them is with Gillian-I am going through some phases lately where I am just worn out from all she requires. She has also been very defiant lately and it has been difficult. Luckily I have a friend who is also an aid in her class who has been taking her home after school one day per week for an extra few hours to give me a break. That is SO nice of her. This week I won't get that as she will be out of town and I am sort of bummed, but nothing I can do about it so I am not worried. Also have some issues going on at my church-bottom line is I am just questioning things and I have always felt out of place there, which I truly do not believe is the way to feel-I think it should be a place of positivity. I am finding its causing me more harm than good, really. It really bums me out :( My huband is very active there so I have to be cautious of how I do things as I don't want it to hurt my marriage at all. So, I guess I just have alot on my mind. I am still chugging along........its not like I am sitting around crying my eyes out or anything like that, I am just sort of keeping myself busy doing other things. My mom thinks I am just burned out on everything. I guess it can get that way after you go-go-go all the time like I do.

I've been where you are, Kristy, and it's a difficult place. It's also hard for others to understand who've never been there. You have a lot on your plate under the best of circumstances but times see to be extra trying now. Take all the break you need for YOU!
