SpitfireMoms, try as I might, I just can’t get up the attitude and pluck to share anything witty, pretty or wise today. Two things are weighing me down: first, my cousin and her family are moving away. She’s more like a sister to me than a cousin. Her little girl and my boys love each other so fiercely. I’m just lost. They’re leaving Friday for Seattle and I’m gutted. Second, two of my oldest friends and favorite people in the world are having marital problems and I, an eternal optimist and desperate people-pleaser, can’t do a damned thing about it.
My heavy heart is preventing me from even pretending to be a SpitfireMom today. I’ve got no fire, only sad little wisps of smoke. So I’m going to turn this one back on all of you – what do you do when you can’t shake off that Pigpen cloud of darkness that’s following you around? I desperately need some tips.
