I've been working full-time lately to help support our family with Dennis being unemployed and all. It's really taking its toll on me. Everyday is a challenge. Everyday I feel less and less connected with my friends, the world, and my family. It's really hard, I'm not going to lie. However, after much contemplation and due to the fact that I can't sleep and I'm pretty much delirious right now...I started thinking about all of the GOOD things that have come out of this.

Good thing #1: the smile on Olivia's face when my car pulls into the garage is PRICELESS.

Good thing#2: the relationship between Dennis & Olivia is amazing. I cannot even believe it at times. For example, this evening my mom & sister (two of Olivia's all-time favorite people) picked her up to take her to get a frozen yogurt. Supposedly she cried and cried for "Dennis" as they drove away. Just thinking about this brings tears to my eyes.

Good thing #3: Dennis cleans. It's not what you might call "my version of clean" but I'll take what I can get.

Good thing #4: sometimes Dennis has a glass of wine ready for me before I even walk in the door.

Good thing #5: to me, Olivia is freaking adorable even if she's throwing a fit. That's what M&M's are for... hahaha.

Don't get me wrong, I CANNOT wait to work less. These are just a few things that get me through the day.

To my friends: I miss you.
