Why can't we all take off our masks and be ourselves? I like it when people are themselves. I like being around people where I feel comfortable being myself. Why are we afraid to share who we really are with those around us? Is it because we are afraid of being rejected? It is a very scary thing to put yourself out there. I admit that sometimes when some people share too much or show their true self too much...I get nervous. There aren't very many people that I can show my true self to all the time. Chris, Anna and a few close friends are about it. I'm lucky to have a really great visiting teacher/friend. Several months ago, I took a chance and revealed to her some of the things I was struggling with and was met with a very sympathetic ear. I am thankful for her.
Sara, your comments on my blog always are so thoughtful. There was one in July that was the impetus for some very important changes in my life. I know I've never told you, but I really appreciate what you say to me via blog comments. Thank you!!
I am disaster prone. I was watching "Worst Week" this week and I was thinking that I am like the main character, Sam. I break things all the time. Magic tricks, walls, end tables...nothing is safe. I drive cars and they fall apart. On Monday, I took Anna to the doctor. I had to park in the parking garage. Our big van barely clears the ceiling and the YM borrowed the van for a trip and put a luggage rack on the top. And didn't take it off. And I forgot about it. Part of it was completely ripped off. The piece still on is all bent up. I don't even know whose it is. :( Yesterday I accidentally dressed Christopher in Calvin's pants. Didn't notice it until after school. He looked ridiculous.
My baby smells absolutely delicious.
On the road again
