Thank you

Thanks everyone, for you advice and support in the comments on my last post. It helped me to stop and think, which, despite what Gluby may think, is actually a good thing (ha, just kidding - ahem, ok I'll be serious now) Even with all of the anxiety I have been experiencing I am excited to see my family, and Gluby's as well.

I haven't been around as much because I have no homework to avoid and I spend all of my time with the boys now (yes, that includes Gluby - for some weird reason he wants to spend time with me after we put the younger boys to bed) which leaves very little time for me to read up on blogs or post on my own. I miss you all and thank you for reading and commenting (especially commenting) and I do hope to post a bit more before we leave. But, please don't hold your breath. I don't want to be responsible for anyone's demise.

Good luck, LB. Listen, there is something I tell myself when I get really overwhelmed or in a tough spot, and it really helps. If you find yourself feeling like you are in a fishtank and everyone's looking in, just tell yourself this (silently): "I am good, I am safe, I am loved". HEAR those words--they help immeasurably when the chips are down.

good luck

LB have fun with all the boys and with your families too. Enjoy, breathe, live.

You don't need to apologize for spending time with your family. Thats the most important thing I can think of doing.

Anyway... good luck and remember that we are all here to support you. Don't forget that.

Hey, LB. Hope your trip is fun and full of visits to fabulous bloggers! I sure wish you were heading a bit more to the east...

;) Take care, you two.

JulieAnn - I love the fishtank metaphor - so very apt, I think. And I will totally memorize that mantra and chant it when I feel the stress is throwing me off balance.

Cele - I think I'll use that as my second mantra and chant it as well - enjoy, breathe, live. Thanks, Cele!

Paranoidfr33k - You have no idea how much you all have been a support system for me over the past 6 months. Not only will I not forget that you are all out there (as long as I don't scare you all away), but I will hold on to that knoweldge when I am flailing. Virtual hugs, everyone!!

FFG - Thank you. And I hope everything with your move is coming along nicely. I totally wish I was in your shoes - well, ok, I'm not ready to be pregnant again, but the job and moving to a new house part is what I would like. :)

SML - Thanks. I am so excited! And I wish you were a bit, ok a lot, more west. I can't wait until I can meet you too!
