Dang it, got the gloomies today. I've been working on house cleaning. And done some exercising. That always helps some. But, I've been trying to stay out of the fridge. I've been doing pretty well lately. But, sometimes things just grind to a halt. I would love to just sit and read, but too many things need to be done in too few days. So, I just need to push through just a little. And, maybe tonight I can just let it go. I think part of it might be that I'm trying to be a good little mommie and not stress over DD starting another semester. This time she is off some of her meds and using a very good therapist. So, I guess I just have to stay back and let her run with it. She'll do just fine. I'm just such a mom sometimes.

I have checked on the auto loan and now the payment has gone through. I still haven't deposited the two checks I hold yet. Especially, since I talked to DS and one of the checks is from them. They are having a tough time until he finds a job. DIL's adamant about paying me back, but her paychecks are growing smaller with the increases in gasoline and food. They won't let me give them money, so I will send a couple of packages of diapers for the little one. Maybe that will be okay and will help some. So, I will deposit one check and apply it to the auto loan. This is one time that something ending is really cool.

Maybe I'll go find some chocolate.....

    Gosh, sagegirl, you're right! This IS a Monday. We've been going to so many docs and places for tests for Hubby's surgery that I lost track. That could be it....

    I get those "gloomies" from time to time, too. Sometimes, you just have to stop for a while, look at a magazine, put on some great music, and breathe. Then, you can get back to work.
    Instead of sending a couple boxes of diapers, can you send a Wal-Mart, or Target gift card, and write that it is for diapers, or something for the baby, in a "thinking of you" type card? The cost of sending any package is getting outrageous, due to increased fuel prices. If it is expressly for the baby maybe they won't feel like you are "subsidizing" them.

    That IS a great idea, Nance. I'll put that into action. Thanks!

    Yes! Send a GC with the diapers, maybe one for the grocery store? That was a great idea!

    DD will be fine. I know how hard it is to let go, but that is why I have faith. Put it in the hands of the big guy!
