One or two of you may have noted that on Friday I was close to a little breakdown of sorts.  DR and I had been suffering through a bit of a disconnect, but we have worked it out.  We are only about 3 months out from being together again...but also, he's been gone longer now than he was here.  It is wearing and can be difficult to stay positive.  My feelings for him are very deep though, so I can keep the faith and keep waiting. 

This was a busy weekend!  I worked Saturday, which meant the usual library madness.  People love them some library services on Saturday. 

Sunday featured my sweet Miss Personality's annual Chuck E Cheese birthday party.  As usual, Auntie Girlie Girl took her out for a new outfit and a manicure before the party.  It is always her favorite gift :)

  Here she is getting pretty pink fingernails.  It is very exciting!

This is the stunning outfit Miss Personality choose.  Notice the little pink cowboy, I mean cowGIRL (as she pointed out to me) boots!  She has impeccable taste!

Sadly, Handsome Lad and I could not linger long at her party.  He had two basketball games scheduled.    His team won the first game and lost the second this time.  Handsome Lad LOVES basketball.  I feel lucky that it is one of the quicker moving and more interesting sports to watch.  I've sat through many a Little League game in my day, so I know what I'm talking about. 

Miss Personality and Love Bug came over to spend Sunday night with us.  It had been such a busy day that after getting everyone fed again, I attempted settling in with some movies.  It went pretty well and the girls were very good and slept until after 8 the next morning. 

Monday was my bonus day off and I really felt like I needed it.  Got caught up on my laundry, sort of.  Also got out to the usual Monday family lunch, which of course some of us mostly miss.  It was fun getting together with everyone again, because Chuck E Cheese doesn't count as a visit...there is no way to talk there!  After that, I finally had some down time.  DR and I got in a very nice long talk and that alone made me feel a million times better.

I hope you all had a nice long or even regular length weekend.  I really liked getting to see everyone's WIND pictures.  Play with us this next week as we attempt - CELL!

Hey, I am glad you are feeling better. Life is such an emotional roller coaster, ain't it?

Also, how did you go from 46 years old to 48 years old without a 47? Do years work differently for you? ;-) (I keed, I keed)

I'm glad you and DR were able to work things out, but I'm sorry you were so upset.

Miss Personality has excellent taste, that is such a cute dress! Happy Belated Birthday to her!

I see no post for Fri. Did you delete it? I hope too that you are feeling better. Long distance sucks.
And I do love the dress!

C4C: A crazy rollercoaster, that it is :-)
ha! I had a whole year of 47 and I have the scars to prove it!

Tara: Thanks, Tara. My big temptation is to just let it go for now and see where we are when he moves back, but that is hard too.
She does have good taste! I will pass along your birthday wishes :-)

NoRegrets: I posted something very brief, very briefly. I had this awful, awful feeling...but yeah, so far it is okay.
I like it too. And the boots are awesome :-)

I'm glad things are better between you and DR. I could never do the long distance thing, so you are a stronger woman than I. But 3 months left? That's nothing. I bet it's nice to have an end in sight.

Cutest dress on the cutest girl ever!

Churlita: I am not sure how well I am doing at the long distance thing. I certainly couldn't do it indefinitly, so having the end in sight is a relief.
Aw, thanks! She is a cutie patootie :-)

3GK: I might even like pink cowgirl boots! Well, maybe not....
