We've all heard that, right? "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." I'm sorry to break this to whoever came up with the phrase, but you need a lot more than lemons to make good lemonade. Otherwise, you're just going to be choking down sour lemon water.
I haven't blogged in a good while. I haven't blogged because life has been throwing me lemons, and while, I don't mind sharing those lemons, I hate when someone thinks they have to pick up a slice and get a bite themselves just to relate.
I don't want to share the bitterness, I just want to work through it and come out stronger on the other side. These lemons just keep coming, however, and I think it's due time to share a bit.
My entire family is mad at me because my brother is getting married (spur of the moment) this weekend and I can't get off of work. Also, apparently I'm mean, selfish, and a complete bitch (thanks mom) and my brother thinks that I want nothing to do with any of them so therefore he didn't even tell me - had to hear through the grapevine, as usual.
Henry has been an awful, needy, demanding handful since being sick. While he was sick (and sick he was - horribly, horribly sick) we waited on him hand and foot. When he said jump we said 'how high' simply because he was miserable and we were miserable and we wanted to do ANYTHING to make him feel better. Now that he's well again he's been expecting the same treatment and it has been quite the challenge to try to break this demanding, give-me, behavior.
Jeremy and I have hit a rough spot - and by 'rough spot' I mean I don't know if we're going to survive this. Sad but true. We're working on it because that's all we can do. We haven't told anyone so I would appreciate any of you that know me outside of this blogging world to keep it to yourself and just pray for us. This lemon alone is enough to drag you down day after day.
So there you are, my current big lemons - the ones that keep pelting me on the head and reminding me that I've been long out of sugar.
Tell me, how have you guys been? I'm sorry I haven't been able to keep up with your blogs. One day I'll be a good blogging friend - I promise!
