Every year, 26,000 babies are stillborn in America. In 2003, one of them was my son.

Feeling Complainy

I think I need a vacation. Yes, I've already had one this year, a really lovely one with my sister, but fall is closing in and winter is looming and I hate winter. I'm tired, I'm discouraged, my husband is currently in India and the kids had no school today because of Rosh Hashanah. Mommy needs a break. And a really good massage - I hurt my shoulder a few months ago while I was weight lifting and it has never recovered. Picking my 3-year-old up all day long probably doesn't help. And I've had a nervous eyelid twitch in my right eye for months; it comes and goes but mostly stays.

I didn't want to complain here; I feel I should try to be inspiring or useful, but I'm just not today. And I feel guilty about not posting very often, but I just don't always know what to say. (This is a recurring problem in my marriage, too. What fun.)

More another day...anybody want to propose topics for me to write about?

Everyone is allowed an off day (or two). Mine was yesterday :-)

Topics to blog about- hobbies?
any recent good movies or books? How did you celebrate Rosh Hashana?
What's you husband doing in India?

Whatever you blog about, I'll be here to read.

Complain away, sister! This is your blog, do whatever you want. :P
FWIW, I always find your blog entries inspring & useful. I'm always here reading.

Hey sweet girl, what a relief to read such an honest, straight forward post. If you need to get a few things off your chest, go for it, what better reason to have a blog than to share some of the load. I am thinking of you and sending love and hugs all the way across the ocean to you, I hope you can feel it, take care xxx
