Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Roses and Thorns

Hope everyone has a great Friday and an awesome weekend! Kick back, relax and have fun! 

Peace out, homies!

Roses to Friday! I can't wait for this weekend, and I have NOTHING planned, but Jed should be home tonight, and I just can't wait for that.

Roses to all the snow the ski resorts have getting; I plan to "play" in it sometime this weekend.

Roses to Mom making me a whole lasagna last weekend, that has fed me ALL WEEK. That's right, no cooking for me this week.

Roses to a delicious dinner (butternut squash pizza) with my Superstar Wednesday night.

Roses to the Team USA hockey team who kicked some Swiss a$$ this week.

Roses to Monday night prayer discussion at my church for Lent. Very peaceful and interesting.

Roses to finally seeing my cousin's son play hockey Sunday! Too cute.

Thorns to work. Things have been stressful this week.

Thorns to spending $75 on Morris at Petco last night.

Thorns to the Olympics ending this weekend. Sad.

Thorns to all Central Falls, RI, high school teachers finding out they are losing their jobs this week.

Thorns to the knots and mattes in Morris hair. Poor thing.

Thorns to rain all week (and not snow!).

i'm BUMMED about the olympics too :( no more apolo? what am i going to do with myself? lol and that whole news story in RI is so disheartening :(

pets are very much like children aren't they? esp. when you have to spend that much but it's worth it because they ARE like our children.

i hope you have a weekend full of roses!!! xoxo

Lucky! I wish I got a lasagna!

P.S. Jordan is usually pretty understanding about me being super grumpy lately, but I've definitely done a lot of apologizing about all the crazy going on!
