Sunday blues

I took a walk this morning, and came across a lot of families out running around & doing family stuff. Usually, this thrills me to see other happy families doing things together - but today it made me sad. I found that I was feeling sorry for myself for some reason, and that in itself bothers me immensely. I am not a "poor me" type individual. If you ask my husband, he will say that I am way too much of a "suck it up", or "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" type person. Well, today is different. I am being pathetic, feeling unsupported, and just have the Sunday blues!

So to combat these feelings, I have being doing some research and reading a lot of blogs. It has helped my "poor me" attitude and I am thankful for the vast amount of information out there. Tomorrow is a new day, and I am looking forward to taking my mind off how stagnant this process has become.

I will leave you with the cutest face ever - our Puggle Gracie! She is wanting a little brother to follow around!


  1. I can remember many times feeling the same way.....stagnant is a good word for it...Hopefully the process will pick up soon!

  2. I can remember the feeling, we adopted two from Vlad in 2008. Believe me the waiting does end, but it's hard not to feel like your life is 'on hold' at times. Don't be too hard on yourself everyone has blue days. It wasn't until we completed our adoption and had some perspectived that I realised how emotionally hard and draining the process had been, but totally worth it in the end.
    Hang in there.

  3. If that face can't cheer you up, I don't know what could!! I hope you are feeling less blue very soon.
