So I said I knew things would be better. And they are, to a degree. The undercurrent of emotion is still strong and it's better to not talk out loud or the waterworks start back up.
So let's talk about the bright spots:
1. I turned off comments on my last post. Not because I didn't want support, but merely because I wrote the post because I needed it. I needed to vent my pain and frustration. It really helped. But imagine my surprise when you all weren't having any of that, and I receieved some much needed emails and words of encouragement. Thank you, thank you much more than I know how to express.
2. Today I found a really cute pair of shoes on sale. So I bought them. Even though I really need "winter" shoes (read: closed, not sandals).
3. My check was bigger than I was expecting. Who doesn't love that?
4. I plan on buying something not good for me at the padaria (bakery) on the way to work. I was thinking something filled with ricotta cheese and sun dried tomatos...mmmm
I have some fun pictures to share, so I'll be back with some happy..or a lot...to try and counteract all the drama.
