Yesterday we received some disappointing news from a family member. I'm not going to go into details at this time because I'm pretty upset about the entire situation. If I dived into it all, I would say some really mean things and I don't want to do that.
Instead I'd like to take some time to get past the emotional part of it, and see if we can make the best of a not-so-good situation. I know this is very cryptic...just know that everyone is in good health & details will be forthcoming once I'm "okay" with it.
It doesn't help my mood & mindset that I woke up to rain. For what seems like the 100th day in a row. When did VA become Seattle? Or Forks? Edward save me already!
And subconsciously I choose a gray shirt. ~sigh~ Honestly, I could have used a bright sunny day today of all days.
In other (much better) news, my swap package finally got to Eve! I'm so happy that she liked everything that I sent. It was a challenge to come up with interesting stuff that she could actually use from my hometown.
S said we should have sent her a Dr. Pepper because it's a known fact that we drink A LOT of it around these parts.
"The company sells more Dr Pepper in the Roanoke Valley than any other metropolitan area east of the Mississippi River, according to Dittrich. In the past, the city has been named the "Dr Pepper Capital of the World" and broke world records for its mass consumption of Dr Pepper in the late 1950s."
That may be but this type of morning calls for large amounts of
Anyway, I have a couple of surprises planned for tomorrow so I hope you will forgive me and find your way back then!
