What a day.

Right now I would rather be writing tribute posts to:
  • My dear grandmother
  • Grace, my birthday girl.
Instead, I have done this:
  • Spent two hours at Walmart while they replaced two flat tires on my car and repaired a leak in another.
  • Missed picking Grace up at the school bus because Walmart took so long.
  • Tried to resolve a bill we got in the mail yesterday for Brad's appendectomy. Which took place in 2008. The balance is 11,000.
  • Made arrangements to fly to Utah to say my goodbyes to Gee Gee who refuses further dialysis treatments.
  • Dug a splinter out of my foot.
 Tributes coming after my nervous breakdown runs its course.


  1. I'm so sorry, Elise. What a hard day. I'm sure your trip will be quick, but if you have a minute, I would love to see you. I'd travel any distance. Love you.

  2. Yay for nervous breakdowns. I'm up to twice daily doses of Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches to manage my semi-permanent state of breakdown-ness. It's actually helping. Also, Zoloft. Hang in there!

  3. What can I do? Except to encourage you to do less and take longer at it? Basically, give yourself permission to be normal instead of super-human. We love you.

  4. Hi, I came across your site and wasn’t able to get an email address to contact you. Would you please consider adding a link to my website on your page. Please email me back and we'll talk about it.

  5. Elise,

    Can I just tell you what a comfort you are to me! It's not just me alone who has days like that and knowing someone I admire so much and think so highly of has them also, brings me peace!!! : ) It will get better.

    Love you!!!
