Trying to find happiness...guess what this is???







I just read a wonderfully honest blog entry from one of the mums in our artistic mothers group...it was about having a meltdown....this prompted me to be honest as well... guess what?...it happened to me last week...i thought i was totally going to lose it bigtime!!!!!there are so many things stressing me at the moment, i won't tell you them!!!but you see i can't lose it because there is too much i have to take care of...so...i will soldier on,and it won't be perfectly... forgive me if i don't comment on your blog for a little while...nor keep up with all the fabulous challenges you put forward..my heart is with you , and all the blogs on my list are so important to me....but i need a wee break i think...all my decisions on what i will do from here are up in the air...the coming season is a tricky one for my family with so many dodgy lungs in this household...mmmmm...not fun!!!

so...i will share with you what gave me a laugh today....a bit of happiness in my life...
Maddie triumphantly came up to me just then an said mum...look what i just made...its a wonderful backscratcher!!!!!how good and inventive is it!!!!!
this little drawing she did was so cute i had to frame it...she is just like her mum...lol...and i love it!!!!

until next time
lots of it
Mandy

I love the backscratcher! Maybe she can make me one. lol. This meltdown thing happens to all of us moms. It coms with the territory. You deserve a break. How does this sound? long soaks in the tub, long walks, curling up with a good book and beverage of your choice, a mini-vacation somewhere, and whatever else you can add to the list. I would say cruise, but that's probably out of the question.

Have you received the cards you won in my giveaway yet?

I'll miss you!!!

Hope you have an awesome break. Hey. Maybe I'll take one, too, soon.

Mandy,
This is great. How wonderful to get a treat like that when you really needed it. I want to thank you for your comments on my meltdown post. I also want to tell you that you are my HERO. Boy do I feel silly getting all stressed when I read what you are dealing with on a daily basis! I wish I could help you out, send over a casserole, whatever, but I am pulling for you from way over here... and no, not one of us is actually alone. We are here if and when you need us!
