We're rocking the black and gold at our house this weekend...Terrible Towels are ready!

John grew up in Pittsburgh and that's still where his family is so it's a BIG weekend around here!

Who knew we'd be back to counting numbers. Fortunately it's six weeks not months since court. It just FEELS like six months. And may it not come to that for all our sakes.

I've now moved into stress/sad management mode:
Returned to gym to 'work-it-off' after the summers moving hiatus. Trying to catch up with friends for lunch (aka distraction) a couple of times a week. Keeping a couple of fragrant lilies in the house because it's a treat for me and I love their smell. House projects - soon out of the indoor ones and will have to move outside! Scheduling drives to the beach to hear the waves and smell the salty air. Love that! Saw a large pod of dolphins last week:) Each day focusing on what went right and the little things that I have to be grateful for. On bad days this doesn't always work though I have to admit. Crossing each day off my calendar, because that means we're one day closer to whenever the end is.

Think I've decided the hardwood floors might not need a thorough hand scrub after all! Phew!

I'm also thanking my sanity to the other moms (you know who you are! All the support and love is mucho appreciated,) and to my awesome husband who gives the best bear hugs to cheer me up, and sweet Bean who's just lovely!
