I don't know what has been going on with me today but I have felt particularly emotional all day.

It might just be because I'm tired. The last week of staying up late with Philip and Merrick has started to take it's toll. I feel like I've been functioning at about 10 percent most of the day. Plus, I was feeling lonely all day without house guests.

Maybe it's because Sundays are always so busy so I didn't really get the chance, until this morning, to reflect on the horrific events that took place in our nation ten years ago. Several blog posts and facebook statuses (stati?) elicited tears this morning. After ten years, the pain, confusion and anger are still so raw.

Perhaps it is because my birthday is tomorrow. Turning a quarter of a century can sure make a girl feel old. Spare me any--well, wait until your 30--comments. I know I'm still quite young. But it's (almost) my party and I can cry if I want to. Birthdays are so strange once you're an adult. I love to celebrate, especially with my sweet family but I still can't help but miss how awesome birthdays are when you're a kid.

It's likely a combination of all of these things in addition to a temperamental toddler, a not-increasing milk supply, never leaving the house today and a natural tendency to be overly emotional anyway.

Maybe a small  medium bowl of ice cream will help me feel better. Hey, it is my birthday (tomorrow) after all.


  1. Happy birthday! and let the tears roll! Emotion is healthy! Express, not repress (name that movie! :))

  2. Post-guest let down is definitely a drag. I hope tomorrow is a great day for you! Eat lots of ice cream and watch the grape lady on YouTube. :)

  3. I think it is hard to turn 25. But still good because you have such a great life! Happy Birthday to you, and I hope the ice cream makes you feel better. You can have a good birthday cry too, maybe that'll help :)

  4. i always get like that around my birthday too. i can never explain it either, but it still happens.
