Post-Musical Depression -

We went to see HSM3 on Friday and once again I am crazy for Troy Bolton. We all loved the movie and we had a great time. So why am I depressed? I really hate using the word "depressed" here, because now tomorrow everything in my adsense column is going to refer to depression. But dang it, I'm feeling a little bummed!

See this picture?


This is the day that my little sister moved over three hours away from me. I know that three hours doesn't seem so awful, but I'm spoiled. Most of my siblings have always lived super close and I like it that way. Consequently, I was present for every big occasion (from little league to baby deliveries).

Baby Kristi was her LAST baby. I got to witness the whole dang thing, and we've been tight ever since. Little Kristi would come visit me often. She would walk right back to my desk (where she knew I'd be working) and she'd hop up in my chair and wait for me to take her picture. I've got some sweet photos of this girl. I love her ... I love them ... and they love me!

Tonight, an additional nephew is being born. Not only am I not in the delivery room, I'm not even in the same city! Part of me wants to just start driving, but the responsible part of me can't do it this week. Argh! The pitiful responsibility of it all.

So I am lying here with my cell phone fully charged and waiting for some news that I can really do nothing with, except to be grateful that all is well, and hope that one day little nephew will come climbing up on my chair, and request his picture to be taken.

In the meantime, I'll feel much better if I just go see HSM3 for a second time.

I am glad everything went well. I have been thinking about her these last couple of day (Tiff told me the situation). Hopefully you will get to hold him soon!

Hopefully you will get to see him soon! I know how you feel...but I don't even live in the same state as any of my family. It's hard!!
Post pics of Julie's babe as soon as you get them!

OK whats sad is that I didnt even know she was having another one! I hate when family is not close by. My family is very close so it has been really wierd for my brother to be in the Philippines for the last 2 years. The fact that missed out on my whole pregnacy/bedrest fun and Kassidy will be 1 1/2 before we see him is so wierd to me. (he is the first one of us to be so far away) I think family should not be allowed to move away. =) How do they like living away? Do they have plans to move back?

I am sure that is going to be hard for you, but like Gail said you are a STRONG women... well if you decided to go for the 2nd time I'm sure Hallie would love to join you...

I feel your pain. Try living in Utah :)...my family is a lot like Shiloh's and no one moves away...ever. Unless you marry the man of your dreams and he wants to be a doctor...and you only sealed the deal in the first place because he said he wanted to raise his family in Az on the 4th date. :)

Nicolle told me they moved back her inducement date. Holy Cow I can't believe the crap her Dr. has put her through. I haven't heard anything lately. Make sure someone lets me know when she has that sweet baby :-)

Karen, I have temporary internet access. I can't believe you wrote such sentimental stuff and it was about me and I didn't even know it. I love you too. I love how much you love my kids. Thank you so much for coming to see us and for bringing the girls. It was so good to have you in my home. Thanks for being supportive of this move. It has made a hard thing easier. I love you. Hug-hug, or more realistically, pat-pat. Juja-babe
