It's kind of been a crazy day today. We hadn't gotten much sleep in the two previous and didn't make it to bed any earlier last night. Imagine our surprise when we woke up at 1 pm this afternoon! Oh my.. I hope we're able to get to bed at a decent hour tonight since we have work tomorrow. I was really trying to just have a good time + relax when we went to LA but I woke up today feeling extremely overwhelmed. I think I've been a bit unfair when I've said I'm stressed but not exactly why. You know I'm a busy woman and most of it I bring on myself, but there is one HUGE thing that's looming and has me quite upset. I'm moving. You may recall that we just relocated here mid-September to be close to our jobs. You could say moving again is my choice but it's not if I want to keep my job. It's put us in the most awful of situations since Alex and I are both employed by the same people. I probably shouldn't write about this but I am because I'm just too upset about the entire thing. We're moving to the Palm Springs area and I HATE the heat. The thought of moving to the desert makes me want to cry- has made me cry. We're moving June 15th and I've definitely been ignoring the looming date.. pretending that if I stay in denial maybe someone will come out and say, "Just kidding!"

I have posted two more FABULOUS {Paper Samplers} in the shop! You really must go check them out! I hope you had yourself a Beautiful Sunday!

yuck I'm so sorry. Palm Springs isn't my favorite either. I hope that it works out okay for you two. I'm praying for you. Praying that you can see God's hand in this, whatever he's leading you into!

It really sucks that you have to move (again). I mean afterall, you have spent most of your life packing and unpacking :(. But let's try to put a positive look on this. It can be a rewarding experience ($) and plus you are still close enough that family is not too far away.

You are fantastic at encouraging people to be optimistic in life. You have a phenomenol (sp?) support group (online and off). It can be okay if you let it. Who knows, maybe it will be fun!

I'm sorry to hear about that, Joleen. But Palm Springs isn't *too* far from where you are now. But still. . .

. . . and you'll still have all of your blog buddies, no matter where you move!!!

Granted, I live and love Phoenix, but I have to say that the Palm Springs area is wonderful. Great shopping, lots of good outdoor stuff, good food, super nice people, Coachella!!, etc. Life is all about attitude. You can make this work! You are one of the most upbeat people I *know*.
