A few months ago, I hit the wall and became pretty deep-down depressed. It was around the time we would have been having another baby and I hit a wall. I lost my energy. I didn't want to leave the house or do much with keeping up with it. I didn't recognize it at the time, but I was really struggling. It was so bad that I couldn't muster up the drive to return books to the library- on our same block. That bad. I racked up some pretty nasty overdue fines.

Fortunately, my guys are pretty forgiving. Stinky was pretty content to play around me as I moped, and WBH took care of a lot of things- cooking, cleaning. I'm so grateful for my patient guys. This weekend, WBH came home and handed me a slip of paper. The receipt for my fines that he had just paid off. Man, I love this guy.

I can't imagine what it was like. I am glad that you have a great support system all around you. Take care of yourself.

I have another thing that might make you happy. I MIGHT just be putting the final touches on my GIFT for you, and can send it this week (that is, if I can get myself to the post office, not quite on my block) which means you'll get it before february is over. and girlfriend, it's AWESOME! :)

I had a very thoughtful neighbor bring me a plate of goodies ("for no reason") on the week when I would have held a miscarried baby, had it made it to term...her tender heart (and good memory) really made an impact on me. I hope to be able to do the same for another someday.

oh man I think you're going to luv this gift. :)
