A turn on the road

I did not post again last night. After we had dinner I spent some time reading blogs and then went to watch my TV show.

Just now, on my way back from daycare after dropping off Isabel, I was thinking of how crappy I am feeling emotionally. I was ready to come here and post about all the feelings of inadequacy and self-loathing that bubble up to the surface on days like this. But after I got home (it's a really, really short drive) I opened Google Reader, and after reading a few blogs, my sadness has somehow abated. These are the things that made me feel better:

Raelha navigated the waters of Spanish bureaucracy and prevailed.

All is well in the world of Somegirl's 7 year-old girl. Smart little kid, that one.

Somehow, the ridiculously cute cat pics with captions at I can has cheezburger made me smile.

So I am grateful for the smiles these have brought me this morning.


  1. It's good to know you're feeling better. I think it's natural to get that way sometimes, it's just good to be able to pull out of it. I hope I haven't brought you down too much, but I'm glad you're reading my blog.

  2. Hi Ingrid! I'm glad you are feeling a little better today. Perhaps you are feeling empty because your family is not together right now. Hopefully when Paula returns you will feel complete again. *hugs* Whatever it is, it's good that you recognize it and are looking for sunshine through blogs and friends! =) Have a nice day! And thank you for the sweet things you posted on my blog. It IS very hard.

  3. I am so glad you were able to find some happiness! :) I am thinking of you!

  4. Big hugs, Ingrid... so glad you found the blog world and that it can return something to you. :)

  5. I'm so glad things took an upturn for you! I've been thinking about you!
