hanging in there

Hello Bloggers

I just want to thank you all for all of your sweet comments, emails, and words of encouragement. I am so blessed to have you during this difficult time. It truly is amazing to be able to carry one another's burdens. Thanks for helping me carry this burden ... it's a heavy one! 

E and I are hanging in there. I feel like I have waves of emotions. Sometimes I feel okay, and then other times I feel sad, angry, and anxious about our future. I'm sure the mood swings are a combination of dealing with a loss ... as well as the effects of my hormones going crazy!

So ... thanks to each of you! You're all too sweet :)
With everything going on, I feel like this week has lasted an eternity. Also, I haven't even had a chance to let you all know that I started my new job this week. Talk about something that will totally mess with you ... I found out I was pregnant on Friday (3 days before starting a new job), started on Monday, and miscarried on Tuesday. I told you ... this week has felt like a million years.

I am REALLY looking forward to the weekend. Getting back to work is hard after having two months off. I know I just said it, but the weekend is looking really good to me! So far I like the new job, but I'll tell you more about that later. 

I am also excited about the weekend because ...

#1 It's going to be a five day one for me! I'm taking off a couple extra days to go to a summer camp with our church's high school students. 

#2 It's 4th of July :)

#3 AND ... my bestie Shannon and her boyfriend Andy are coming to stay with us. So excited for the much needed girlfriend time! 

What are your weekend plans? 
Anything exciting? 
How do you celebrate the 4th?

On a totally different note, here are a couple pretties for you. 
I need a lot of pretty in my life right now. 
I might just have to buy some of these striped straws ... any ideas for how I should use them??
