Right now I feel stronger. And happier. And then I feel guilty for feeling that way. Vicious circle, I tell ya.

The Coach's season is over. He's (understandably) disappointed that it is over..it is what he works for all year..their season didn't end the way they wanted it to (ended in the first round of play-offs), all that jazz. Of course I want him and his team to do well..but..in all honesty, I'm glad it is over. It was a LONG season. To think that it started when we were doing IVF. Whoa. It is nice to have him home and around a little bit. I miss him when he's in season.

We had a faboulous Memorial Day weekend. Friday night we grabbed drinks with friends at the neighborhood pub. Saturday we saw the Hangover II (awesome!) and Sunday we went to a minor league baseball game and enjoyed way too many margaritas and beers. Fabulousness!

We also have some fun summer trips coming up. The Coach's sister lives in the pacific northwest and will be down in Nashville with her partner in June so The Coach and I are driving up there for the weekend to see them. And to drink!

Then in July we are taking a quick trip down to New Orleans for a few days and then ending the trip with a day at the beach in Biloxi. It will be so nice to have him ALL TO MYSELF! And to get some much needed quality time in. As you all have gathered, it is few and far between.

So, for today, right now in this minute, I feel ok with my life. Maybe even a little happy with my life...and that's better than most days so I'll take it.

not strong enough

Do you ever feel like you just aren't strong enough to make it through? That all of the strength you ever had is gone...long gone...and you just don't know how you'll make it, how you could ever be expected to come out on top? You just have too much on your plate, too much shit in your life and you just can't deal?

I really hope someone else feels this way...I can't be the only one, right?

2 things

1. I'm sure everyone has, by this point, heard of the sheer devastation in the southern part of the country, particularly in Alabama where The Coach and I live. We are safe, we are fine. Miraculously our town was really one of the few in the state that wasn't hit. I think our city had two confirmed trees down, about 200 people without power for a few hours and NO injuries or fatalities. Other areas of the state, particularly Tuscaloosa and Birmingham, are almost wiped clean. So please, please, please send any thoughts and prayers to those areas. Our Governor has deemed this disaster as a level I..other level I disasters in recent history are Hurricane Katrina and 9/11. If anyone is interested in helping in any way, please visit http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Toomers-for-Tuscaloosa/127019264041188

Toomer's for Tuscaloosa is a wonderful organization established by Auburn fans that wanted to help out in Tuscaloosa and the surrounding areas. This organization is WONDERFUL! A complete and total God Sent to those suffering.

2. The Coach's team had their final home series of the season this past weekend and they won 2 out of 3 games...against the #4 team in the country! What a way to close out the home schedule!!
