Decisions, Decisions

You know I hate to go all serious don't you? But things have been pretty serious 'round here lately. Over the weekend, my Grandma was in the hospital in bad shape (she's doing better now but she is still, and has been, a very sick lady). Anyway, I was with her the whole time because things were so unpredictable.

I wouldn't trade that for anything, but sadly, I missed my Julianna's birthday because of it. When I finally did make it home, I wasn't worth a flip because I'd only grabbed about 4 hours of sleep over the whole weekend.

Since that point I have been wracking my brain over something to blog about, however, my attempts have all turned out frighteningly lacking. I mean seriously, who really wants to hear about the fact that I've lost about 16 things in the last 4 days, and that losing things make me 700 kinds of crazy? Or that some random lady at my co-op flat told me off because I asked her how many of her FIFTEEN children were hers biologically?!

Do you really want to hear about that? Because, let me tell you, those are the things pummelling my brain right now, dying to get out. So you see, inside my head? It's not always nice in there. And I'm kinda dying to blow the dust off of, and get on up on ye old soapbox.

It's either that or a Meme. I know. I sure do hate to make things so rough on y'all. So you decide, Soapbox OR My Favorite Flavor of Jello.

Love ya tons,

Well, that's a conundrum. I think soapbox because it will make you feel better. But then again, I would like to know your fave Jello flavor.

Because I'm all about the trivia. Yes ma'am, I am.

3girlsmom said...

Oh, and most importantly - glad your grandmother is doing better. I've been praying girl.

Gayle -
I missed you! I was wondering where you had been.
I think chocolate is an awesome topic to cover sine I personally don't care for jello.

The funny thing is my last post was titled the same as yours but it was about chocolate.
I hope that you get some rest, and a little chocolate won't hurt either!
I will pray for your grandmother. I understand. My dad has been in the hospital for a couple of weeks and now is in rehab so he is doing better but still not "healthy".

Thanks for commenting. So why do your kids need bells? Does she realize NO ONE will be able to pry the bells away, and that they will be rung LOUDLY during the whole ceremony?

sounds like a rough week. i know things will even out for you soon though. i never mind listening to a rant. i have them sometimes myself. most of the time i have to restrain myself from ranting on the blog. there are only so many times people can hear about how nausous i am!

Soapbox. Definetely soapbox. I got on one today, and I don't want to be lonely.
Next week I'm sure we'll be back with pictures of our favorite insects, cheeses of the world or other facinating tidbits.

I'm sorry your grandmother is sick. Sounds like a really rough week. I'll be praying for a lighter load for next week.

As for blog topic... whatever will make you feel even the tiniest smidge better!

Oh I can so relate. Hence the mild soapbox about the funeral home sales spiel. And the totally worthless "What Does Your Handbag Say About You?" quiz on my blog these past couple of weeks.

Hang in there my bloggy friend.

Bless your heart!
I'm always up to read a Soapbox post; love those! Not surprisingly, I also have my own opinions about Jello (pudding & gelatin), so if you write about it, I'll comment with my own random Jello thoughts. ;)

I'll be praying for your grandma. I know it must have been tough to miss Julianna's birthday, but you gave her such a beautiful model of love, sacrifice, honoring...maybe you can surprise her with a girls' night out or lunch together.

Hangeth thou in there, friend!

Grace and Peace,

I'm thinking of you today, girl. I hope you had a sweet time with your Grandma.


Emily said...
