Tuesday Thoughts

I feel lately that my mind is a huge jumble of thoughts and because of this, it makes coming up with a blog I actually think people will want to read, difficult.

We're still waiting to find out when we leave Italy and where we are going. I know people are just eager to see Sean and I again, but every convo I have with my family contains the words, "So when are you coming home?" This is the million dollar question and one I cannot answer. I'm honestly kind of tired of trying to answer it.

I feel like a big ball of emotions lately. It seems like the slighest thing can turn my stellar day into the most craptastic day ever.

I feel restless a lot lately. As if one thing cannot hold my attention. I go through this every year at varying times, but I hate it. It's just not me.

I keep finding myself wanting things and when I see other people with those things it makes me jealous. I hate being jealous. It is not a favorite trait of mine. These "things" range from a successful Etsy shop, to a toned body, to traits that I admire in others.

It would be nice to be able to plan things without wondering where I'll be within the next month.

I've discovered lines and wrinkles on my face that were not there before. I'd hoped I'd age gracefully, but I didn't think I'd start doing it at the tender age of 28.

hang in there lovely! I've been having a bit of a jealousy streak lately too so you're not alone. And I too, absolutely loathe that feeling.

I have been having a huge jealous streak too. It is not a good feeling to have. I've been trying my best to focus on what blessings I do have rather than what I don't. That is much easier said than done!

Jealousy is rearing it's ugly head in my life as well. I keep having to mentally smack myself and think of all of the things I have that others wish they had. A nice house, a husband with a great job, two great kids, etc. It's just hard sometimes.

And it may seem crazy but I'm sure there is someone looking at you wishing they had what you have. I, for one, am totally jealous of your amazing vacations. :)

You're in luck, because this Thursday you'll have nothing to be jealous about. I don't have a successful shop of any kind, my body isn't the slightest bit toned, and my traits are all lame. Also, my face is more broken out now than when I was 16. Awesome. :)

Thanks for your honest post, I love your blog and hey I am jealous of those vacations too! ;)

I completely understand about the tiring and endless questions about when you're coming home. His family is too eager also and it drives me nuts, we are not magic eight balls here!

You'll be just fine though, tomorrow is a whole new day :)

I can relate on the jealousy part. It's been something fierce this month!! Btw, I'm envious of your beautiful, long blonde hair, and the confidence you exude whenever we hang out...pretty great traits if I do say so myself :) And I'll make you some cuppycakes and Hawaiian food in a few weeks to cheer you up!!

This morning, I was horrified to find some lines on my forehead that wouldn't quite smooth out. After making various faces, I determined that they're from raising my eyebrows. My skepticism is aging me!!!

It must feel so frustrating to be in such limbo. I really hope you get some information soon.

Don't worry about those lines and wrinkles! I have them too, at 31. They started as soon as my son was born. But I'm embracing it! Come what may.

No worries! It happens to the best of us! I'm recently transplanted to New Jersey (a BIG change from my home in the South!), am working sooo hard on my Etsy shop (with not much in the way of results!), finding more gray hair than ever (I'm only 32! So i cover it with blonde!) AND I am not even close to being toned with bikini season almost here (I love food too much to give it up!) But life is good. You will find out where you are going and a new adventure will start! Good luck!
