Sooooo... I may have had a breakdown the other day and cried for a couple hours.

Haven't been really feeling up to blogging, mostly because I either feel incredibly frustrated and upset/angry/annoyed at my kids or incredibly sad and tired/pathetic/silly at myself. I'm trying though, I'm trying.

I never really finished any of my "love" stories, but eh, I'm over it.

And I'm about ready to erase this post right now! Wish I could think of something hysterical to write about right now, but I can think of not a thing.

What do you guys do when you're alone 24 hours a day and are pregnant and have three other kids? Oh, oh! I thought of something you could help me with! I want to read some books, could you leave a comment for me of a list of books you've read that you would recommend to me? I would appreciate it so much!


  1. Oh honey I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! I feel like this kinda... but I'm not pregnant and my husband isn't in basic training... a million miles away...

    I understand why you are bummed.

    wow I'm not that good as a pick me up am i?

    I have read the Help which was really good. and other than that nothing.

    wow I wish I could come hang out with you and do something really cool like eat chocolate and peanut butter. or watch a funny movie.

  2. I really liked The Book Thief. It might be sort of depressing though.

    Hang in there! I wish I could be there to give you a big hug.

  3. I've been depressing myself by playing solitaire on the computer for hours and hours at a time. I think I have seasonal depression (or pregnancy depression!) Or cabin fever. Or something. Whatever it is, it isn't my fault. It's gotta be something that is out of my control.

    Anyway, I love reading Sherlock Holmes. It will keep you busy for hours! And it is pretty entertaining...I mean, Sherlock was addicted to cocaine! I haven't had time to read lately though...I'm too busy cleaning up after my extremely messy toddler! Hope you get to feeling more chipper! :D

  4. These Is My Words
    Hunger Games and Catching Fire (warning...the 3rd book doesn't come out until August)
    Goose Girl
    Princess Academy
    The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
    Count of Monte Cristo
    Secret Life of Bees

    And snap out of it. (This is LITERALLY what my friend said to me upon me telling her about my winter blues. We're not close.)

  5. Oh I wish I could do something for you to lift your spirits. Truly I do. I understand. I am alone too---albeit with a wonderful husband that you are without. I miss my friends, my kids, my grandkids. BUT, It would be hardest to be without your husband. I am so sorry you have to got through this right now with your little ones, with so many demands on you, and when all you yearn for is a hug from hubby.

    Books help. My fav's are
    Anne of Green Gables.
    Ride the Wind (if you are into Indian stories, true life)
    Eleni (incredible true story of a womans struggles for freedom by Nicolas Gage!!)
    Goose Girl and and Princess Academy is lovely---mentioned above.
    The Hiding Place (another true story of the Holocost....these may seem depressing, but it puts a "light" on our own personal struggles and depressions")
    The Good Earth !! Pearl S. Buck---a classic!!

    I wish I could be there to take you to lunch, tend your kids while you went out for a "break"
    I am sorry you have to deal with this right now.
    You can do it.
    You are stronger then YOU think.

  6. Oh I feel for you! You seriously need a girls night out!! Is that possible? Babysitter? If I lived near you (and knew you - LOL) I would totally make that happen.

    You could always put the kids to bed early so you have some "me time".

    Sending {{Hugs}}

    I would read a steamy historic love story if I were you - You know back in time, men who fight for their women, passionate stolen kisses in a castle courtyard, yada yada yada...good stuff! :D

  7. You know, you don't have to be happy/funny all the time. It's okay to have tough days where you just don't feel like laughing. We still like you even if every day isn't chipper.

    I hope the time passes faster for you. Hang in there!

  8. I really wish I could say something to make you feel better. I really really do. Do you have someone who can take your kids for a few hours? That always makes a HUGE difference for me.

    As for books:
    The book thief (yes, depressing. But SOOOO worth it.)
    Hunger games.
    The grift.
    Princess academy
    Princess Bride
    the Hundred Secret senses
    The 5 people you meet in heaven.
    Enders Game

  9. Books? Reading? What are these things you speak of? Fifi?

    Hahaha, I know I know, I'm the only one that thinks I'm funny! Anyway, if I had time to read it would be something really funny. Because let's face it, laughing makes us feel better:)

    And if you need someone to take the kids for a bit, or keep you company, you know I'm just a call or short drive away!!!:) LOVE YOU
