...love my kids even when they scream at me like I am kidnapping them, even though I am only telling them it is time to come home from the park.

...have been feeling very hermitish lately. Not sure if it is self imposed or out of necessity.

...am planning on making some strawberry freezer jam this week. All I need are the berries, I can't wait.

...keep finding things to cry about, every day. What the heck is wrong with me?

...have so many lovely pictures and things to share, but I just can't seem to make myself do it.

...wish we lived by family. Does it ever get easy to be away from the ones who love and know you best?

...am feeling kinda meh. I hate feeling sorry for myself, but sometimes I just can't help it. Hopefully a better attitude is around the corner.

...am looking forward to summer. Time with the kids, time with Keith, maybe some time with family, and time with myself.

IS looking forward to summer? Good thing you ain't an English major. There's always a let down after a visit, hon. You'll feel better. Love. Dad

haha, thanks for the catch dad. and yes, you are right, when family is in town, it shows you what life COULD be like. :(

Wish you lived closer too. Can you imagine the food we'd cook together and the craft projects you'd make me finish (grin)?

Freezer Jam? Explain please!

I understand the feelings. I think we all go through stages like this. I hope you get the time you want with family, friends and yourself. If you find a way for yourself...let me in on the secret.

Oh, Shannon! I'm so sad you're in a funk right now. I have been in a funk for the longest time--living away from family is so hard!--and I don't like hearing that other people are too. If I can't be happy, I would hope my friends would be! Anyways, if you ever want to talk, just give me a call. Um...I'm not going to post my number online, but you can get my paren't number from your mom. That's where I am right now. I would love to hear your voice again and chat!

I understand--I felt the same way when we lived in SC after we had Jake. It has been fun living here, but I am tyring hard not to think about December and what it will bring.

And remember these things will help make you stronger, and your family stronger for having one another. We hope you get out here sometimes--we would love to visit. Hope things get better--cheer up. You'll do great!!!!
