To clarify:

Have you been fooled by my rose-colored-glasses posts?

Phill has been in Germany (YES I AM JEALOUS) since the 2nd; he'll be back Saturday at midnight. (After which our van will turn into a pumpkin, and my flip-flop will mysteriously go missing.)

Secretly last week was really not so great. I was detached and dull and despondent and disorganized. (Grade for last week, D+) Today, though, on the other side of two weeks with only a few more days to go, I feel much better. Did dishes and laundry and didn't cry into a bowl of ice cream.

I just wanted to be....forthcoming about my human-ness? Provide a little clarification? I don't know. I just wonder if I pretend everything is okay when it's not? That can't be helpful. I'd like to be in inspiration, not an illusion. I guess I just don't figure you want to hear about those more human days.

You put on a good act! I know you must have missed Phill a lot on his birthday and on Mother's Day. But you looked so happy in your pictures... I never suspected you were eating tear-flavored ice cream!

I love how you compare yourself to Cinderella and you really can't wait to get back to your REAL life where everything is as it should be. Comfortable routine--domestic bliss.
