Getting a Grip

I feel like ever since I wrote my last blog post about Megan and Brent losing their baby, I haven't felt much like blogging. Their loss effected me so much it brings me to tears if I think about it too much. I don't even know them in real life, but I just feel so sorry for their loss. But I will try to suck it up and move on, while continuing my prayers for them.

I'm so glad it's Friday. Not only was it a long week at work...but I also haven't seen Michael really since last week because of his crazy schedule trading at his work. He actually gets the weekend with me and starting tonight, I get him all to myself until next Wednesday or Thursday! *sigh of relief*

Tonight we have plans to hang out with a couple of friends and eat some pizza and maybe have some root beer floats! Tomorrow we will be, once again, looking at houses. When will it end?! I admit, it is fun to actually go out and look at the houses, but it's also hard because I don't dare get my hopes up about any of them. We simply look, love or hate, write offers, and move on. I can't tell you how freaking happy and relieved I will be when we finally get a house. This has been a ridiculously long process. I keep having to tell our new realtor that we will not be looking at short sales anymore. Hopefully that speeds things up a bit!

We are still waiting for the physical test to happen for Michael's next academy. He passed the written, but there are no open dates available yet for the physical. Why must we wait for every stinkin thing?

Get a grip, Shelley! You have so much to be greatful for! Everything will happen the way it is supposed to happen!

I know what you mean about Megan and Brent. Cohen going to heaven has affected me in a big way as well since I just gave birth a short 8 weeks ago. Fortunately my little boy is healthy as can be and I am so thankful BUT being with him and how fragile and helpless he is without me, I cannot imagine what Cohen and his parents must have been feeling. Ugh, it makes me cry just thinking about it. And I cannot even stand to look at the pictures they posted because I just want to scoop Cohen up and hold him and tell him everything will be okay.

But all I can do is pray for strength and healing. Our prayers are numerous and strong!

That was a lot longer than I anticipated it being, but Megan and Brent's journey is a powerful but sad one.

Try to have a happy weekend with your husband though! :)

How heart breaking (@ your last post). My mother lost a baby about a day after he was born (before I was born) and I know that she still hurts so many years later. She never talks about him though.

Hope you have a good weekend. Root beer floats sound awesome right now. But I still have an hour left of work, alas.

I had a friend in my ward in VA who lost her baby to SIDS. The baby was 2 months old. It was so sad.

All I can say about house hunting and buying is be patient. Make sure you have all the records you have otherwise had buried close to the surface. It takes a long time. Short sales are a long process, hopefully you will not have to go there.
