those times....

So, as most every adult knows, there are times in life where things are just not so great. Not so terrible, thank goodness, just not so great. Things at work are not so great, things at home are not so great. Seems like the devil is taking cheap shots every chance he gets. That is pretty much where I am at. Things have been worse and I certainly don't need anyone telling me how much worse things could be, I know that. If you are one of those people who actually does feel better by hearing how much worse off others are or it could be, please don't assume that everyone is like that. Hearing that things could be worse doesn't help make things better. I am not depressed and really it just one of those times that just makes you ready for it to be over. Of course, a great thing about these times is the powerful knowledge that it will be over. Plus, this time has made me grateful for the past couple of years when things have been so good in my life!

On a much lighter note....the Olympics start today!!! I LOVE the Olympics, always have and am SO excited about them! I know I'm a nerd but there's something to be said about finding the joy in small things and I definitely do that! Also, I need to admit....I have a little crush on Michael Phelps! So, go USA!

Hey - this is not one of those "think of how bad it could be stories" but I just got my wisdom teeth cut out and I vaguely remember when you got your out (I think). If it is you I was thinking about, your cheeks were massive! Ahhh, good times. You going to V-town anytime soon? Now that I work at the PD, I see the dispatchers quite a bit. I bet you are a great one :) We should work in the same town.

Hey Laurie, sorry to hear things have been tough lately...you'll be in my prayers. On a different subject, I love summer olympics too and haven't had the chance to even see an Olypmic commercial - Grrrr... My fingers are crossed for turning the t.v. tomorrow night to catch some of it!
