I'm sure I am not the only one who goes on emotional roller coaster rides. Lately I have been on the upside of one! A couple weeks ago I was feeling down. It doesn't last all day, it just comes once in awhile. The reason is because sometimes I feel like my social life hardly exists. I went from having an active social life to having hardly a social life at all a couple years ago. My family moved, our church also moved(since my dad is the pastor! hehe), and then more friends moved. I grew up going to church every Sunday and actually really enjoyed it, helping out in many ways over the years. Now, we feel somewhat lost about what church to attend. I just loved what I was used to and nothing seems to compare to it. So when those thoughts weigh heavy on my mind, I feel a little bummed out. But then I get encouragement from others and know that I have to be happy in our current situation and not just always look for something to happen in the future.
So like I said, I feel mostly good since a couple weeks ago. There are a couple reasons why that I'd like to share!
#1-I feel like we as a family have been more active lately. Not only in the exercising sense, but in going out and trying to have fun. I stay at home with our son so I don't get tons of adult interaction during the week. I do go to stores and take him out, but you know how it is. I just feel like I have been less bored and lonely lately.
#2- My parents will be visiting this weekend, and then me and Kavi are leaving to go back to Alabama with them on Sunday for a visit! My husband will drive up before fourth of July and then we can all ride home together after the weekend. So I am looking forward to that!!
#3- WE ARE GOING ON A 4 NIGHT CRUISE at the end of September!! Did my CAPS hint my excitement?? :) I have never been on a cruise before. In the past I wasn't sure it sounded like something that appealed to me. But then after hearing some good experiences, and seeing good prices, we knew we wanted to do it. We are even bringing our son! And now also my sister and a close friend are going to come along. It's going to be a very fun time at sea with a stop at Cozumel, Mexico. I know it will be very touristy, but I haven't done much touristy stuff in awhile so I am really really looking forward to it!! We booked the cruise a couple weeks ago, I just hadn't gotten around to talking about it here.
