Today I...

*Got up at 6:00
*Made coffee
*Read my favorite blogs
*Checked email
*Got dressed
*Got kids up and dressed
*Made toast
*Filled a sippy cup (about a thousand times)
*Took kids to Grandma's
*Went to the bank
*Got the oil changed in my car
*Picked up a prescription at the pharmacy
*Went to Kinkos
*Went to Best Buy...Bought a new printer because the one we've only had for a year and a half decided to crap out and it's just cheaper to buy one than to fix it.
*Went to Target
*Picked up Megan from Grandma's--left Jake there to play with his cousins
*Put Megan down for a nap
*Hooked up the new printer
*Made a brochure in Photoshop for Pete
*Printed it out 4 times before I got it right ;)
*Found out our truck is breaking down and is going to be about 2 thousand dollars to fix. *lovely*
*Found out a good friend could be really sick.
*Praying that he's not.
*Realized that some things don't turn out the way you think they will
*Made dinner while IMing with Melissa :)
*Made brownies. We needed brownies.
*Ate dinner
*Had a bite of warm aforementioned brownies. We needed warm brownies.

And right now....I'm just trying to stay positive. Trying to be the one that says "it's all gonna be alright" even though it's hard for me too. It's so hard to see someone you love and care about so much just completely stressed....almost too his breaking point. And he says "just how much more of this can I take?"....holding it in as best he can when I can see he's just ready to burst. And I have no control over it. And all I can say is...
It's all gonna be alright.
And I'll love you no matter what.
Somehow it just doesn't seem like enough.

I am praying for you Corey, and yes, it is so hard to see your loved one going thru this kind of thing... Keep the warm brownies coming as needed. :)

Melissa said...

Praying for you also. It will be ok. God's timeline is just sometimes longer than ours...

Brownies sound so good. Would have gone perfect with my ice cream :)

wish I could give you more advice or solutions...but know that I am thinking of you!!
I think we are alot alike in the way we deal with things (from the impression I get anyway)...and as hard as I know it is for me to do -sometimes you just have hold on and let things happen as they will - knowing that in the end it will all turn out right.

Did love the 'today i' timeline though it was good...thinking I need brownies too now :)

Tell him again, "It will be all right" because I'm sure it will. Not sure the situation, but praying everything will be fine.
