Random Thoughts for Thursday

I went to Stephanie's service on Sunday and am so glad I did. I got to see many friends from high school, and we all got to reminisce and remember great times with Steph. Funny thing, I somehow thought that if I just got through the service, that would be that. I'd move on. The lump in my throat would vanish. But it hasn't happened that way. Stephanie continues to be on my mind throughout each day. The lump is still there. But, while it was overwhelming at first, it's becoming more manageable. I'm happy that she's in a better place. Cancer-free.


On a much {MUCH} lighter note, Kenners has informed me that she'd like to have a picnic on the moon sometime. You know, if we get a spare minute, and can just make the trip to the moon for a quick bite to eat. She said that if we're still up there when Daddy gets home maybe we can call down to him {with a microphone, of course, because the moon is far away} and wave. Oh how that girl makes me smile. She talks non-stop {hmmm, where or where does she get that?} and has the most inquisitive personality. She keeps me on my toes.


I have a To-Do list a mile long. Or rather, 42 million miles long. And I don't know where to begin. I've even made lists, but there's only so much room on the paper, and it gets a little . . . overwhelming. Tell me I'm not alone here.

I keep adding things to my list...just started tackling a few today. *phew* it is exhausting.
Hugs to you!
How fun to have a picnic on the moon.

I have a ton of things to do too....some that can wait {like working on some crafts} and some that I have to do NOW {like dinner}! I'm glad you made it to the service for your friend...I hope it gets easier with time:) Kenners sound like a smart and funny little girl! I'm sure she does keep you on your toes!

My list is so bad that I don't even have the courage to put it on paper!

I'm so sorry you are still struggling with your friend's death so much. Give it time, some days are better than others and some days will bring you to your knees. Embrace the grief, for without it you'll never move forward. God gave us these emotions just as he gave us joy and happiness. To push aside the grief is pushing Him aside too. I know it's cliche, but time will make it better.

A picnic on the moon? Too cute!

I have quite a list going as well, but it will all get done eventually.

I have a mile long list in my head. What is with January wanting to do and change so much! At least you've written yours down. No, not alone girl, not alone.


Jen said...

OMG you are SO not alone in the overwhelmed category - I blogged about just that today. It helps to throw it out there and hear from others that you aren't alone, or crazy, or whatever :)

and I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend. Ovarian cancer is scary-bad, by the time you figure you have it, it's always so late :( It must seem surreal, especially since she was so young (as I guess you are as well). Prayers for her, her family, and you as well tonight.

I'm glad it's gotten a bit easier for you.

I am a compulsive listmaker. I have books of lists. Lists of all categories. I can't just make a to do list. I have a to buy before I do list. A to clean before I do list. A kitchen to do list. A to do in the kids room list. I could go on. I won't. Just writing all of that out is making me think that I am just a little bit crazy. . .

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend...I would imagine it will impact you for quite awhile. Something like that makes you realize how quickly things can change.

My daughter talks non-stop too...she comes up with the funniest things. Thank goodness, we can rely on our kids to keep smiles on our faces at the exact time we need it!

I'm so glad you went and were able to celebrate her life!

That Kenners is a crack up. I love the cute things that kids say.

My list is a mile long too. I've been on a proper, lazy vacation this week, since hubby still has this week off, even though Maddie had to go back. We've been SO lazy! And Saylor's mess making skills have stepped up a notch lately, so she has messes everywhere! I finally got her room cleaned again tonight. But it'll be messed up in no time.

Tell Kenners that my husband is working really hard to make sure she can have a picnic on the Moon.

As long as President Obama doesn't stop him....

I'm glad you went to the memorial even though I know it must have been hard.

I'm overwhelmed lately too...the house is a mess and our tree is still up! lol. I hope to get much accomplished but unfortunately it's not going to happen if I continue to sit here reading ;)
