More About You Monday

Not too many hidden talents, huh? 

I told Dave I don't have a hidden talent to post, and was going to have to put his, which is holding a Sierra Nevada beer bottle with his abnormally strange, freakish moving, shoulder blades.

He told me I do have a hidden talent. I was confused, and asked him what it was. He said I am a pool shark. Yes, I used to can shoot a good game of pool. 


In what ways do you work through sadness?


  1. I write. Sometimes my blog gets too depressing and I understand that a lot of people don't want to read it but I try so hard to keep my real life, with the kids, as normal and upbeat as possible that I take everything out on my blog. That doesn't mean I don't cry in front of the kids, that I don't get sad, that they don't know when I get sad, but I try not to let them see it day in, day out, 24/7 like it is in my head. So I write. And write. And write some more. Valentina knows when I start crying that I'm crying for TT. She automatically hugs me and says "you miss TT?" Asa made me laugh the other day. I was in my bathroom in my bedroom and he came in to ask me if he could play a video game. He walked in, stopped short and said "sissy, are you crying?" I laughed out loud and told him no, I wasn't. I had told him one time that I go into my bathroom to cry sometimes and he remembered it. That was MONTHS ago, back when I asked him if it was ok to cry in front of him. He had said yes, it was ok to cry in front of him so I don't use my bathroom as a crying corner anymore.

    So I write. And cry. And nothing helps. See? It's like I get on a blog and nothing but negativity comes pouring out!!! AAARRGGHHH!!! I need to STOP IT!!!

    Love you.

  2. Bubble bath, good cry and lots of hugs:)

  3. crying is good for the washes away the saddness & makes room for good things to happen.

  4. I get busy with my kids. They always distract me and force me to look at the positives in my life -- them!
