sometimes...

life gives you lemons....
i know the cliche, make lemonade...

what if...
the lemons are rotten...

at least we have these little cuties...
or this kitty cat....
i'm usually not even a cat person ;)
i know life isn't always fair...
my job - great
friendships - wonderful
family - amazing
relationship - wonderful, amazing, loving and then some ;)
life in general - tough
i am happy 
but 
things are just tough.

makes me nervous and a bit emotional.
we keep getting lemons thrown at us.
i (we) don't get why.
these lemons are rotten!
there isn't anything we can do with them...
besides shove them down the garbage disposal.
which at this point, sounds like an excellent idea!!
those lemons have taken over, again. 
when.does.it.end?!?

not to sound like a whiner...
maybe i just need a hug...
or some vodka to add to my lemonade :)

enough from me...
work was bananas yesterday!!!
attempting to catch up on blog today!!
i heart my bloggy friends!!!
even though i seem to be losing one a day ;)
xoxo

Sorry to hear cupcake, another cliche- "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger". Someone I admire a lot once told me "you can't be great all the time". True. And whatever you guys get through together truly makes your bond stronger. Just try to look at the big picture and remember that in the grand scheme of things there are very few things that REALLY matter.

Brittany said...

Aww Annie, first, you are too cute with your lemons and stuff! I love your positive attitude :)

Second, here's a big HUG!!

I hope whatever is going on right now goes away very soon and things get back to normal for you and Billy! Things will get easier soon!

xox

"or maybe some vodka to add to my lemonade" <-- awesome. :)

I'm sorry things are tough right now, girl. Sometimes, I feel like it's impossible for everything to go right at the same time and it frustrates me. But thank gosh you have all the other great things in your life to help you through the tough ones. If I was there, I'd certainly have a vodka lemonade with you...or a bottle of wine. :)

Sending hugs and love, gorgeous.. Hoping things get better....

I love the lemon picture with the smiley faces. I just noticed that I lost a follower today or yesterday. I've been MIA, because my boyfriend is just back for a week before he leaves again.

Jenni said...

Just keep swimming! I know its tough right now...im jealous of brides whose biggest problem is what color ribbon to wrap around the handle of the bouquet.... i barely have time to plan my wedding with everything going on in life! But in the end, lifes troubles make us stronger, make our relationships stronger and give us something to look back at and be proud for perservering. Keep your chin up!
