I know I've only posted here and there since this past weekend. Sorry. I had to take a break from the adoption groups for a few days. Mother's Day pushes me over the edge and I have to step away so I'm not a complete wreck.
I detest the fact that I celebrating in the wake of someone else's grief in order to celebrate Mother's Day, therefore I detest the holiday.I was a in a funk all day on Sunday so I kept my nose in my Nook to keep from falling apart all day...luckily, my family was great about it and understands. I put on a happy face for the kids, but they were playing with their cousin all day and they were fine with me reading. It is compounded by the issue that Kahlan was stillborn a week after Mother's Day in 2003... we are coming up on her 9th birthday in 5 days and this is always a tough week for me. Thankfully, I have a ton to keep me busy this week.
I will try to be more active the next few days now that Mother's Day is over.
