shades of gray.

 we're in a gray area. limbo.
some days i just want all of this to be over.
i wish that we could just fast-forward through this year.
and then i feel guilty for even thinking that.
i am healthy. my girls are healthy. my husband is healthy.
we are happy and strong and free and blessed.

it seems wrong to wish for more than what we've been given each day.
i feel guilty for considering it a challenge to get out of bed each morning when i have a body that is capable and a life that is beautiful.

but still...

i just want my husband home.
i want my girls to have their daddy. i want to live a "normal" life.
i don't want to be pityed or admired, because i'm neither pitiful or admirable.
just normal in an abnormal life.

a life in limbo.

  4. How do you always find everything for such a good deal? I looked on the Banana Republic website and saw this shirt for 40 something dollars...

  5. anon: i have to admit, my aunt works for gap and bought me this shirt, so there was a discount.
    also, i used to work at j.crew, so a lot of my clothes were purchased there with my employee discount. and...sometimes i just get lucky! :)
