  2. So sorry you’re feeling down (Hugs). I also love the waffle house – yum.

  3. If you still need to write that post, password protect it, but get it out. Otherwise those feelings are going to sneak up on you when you least expect it, and something tiny, will blow out of control. Email it to me if you don’t want to publish it at all. I will listen without judgement.

    I love these meme posts – and ohmyhat – the steffi graff thing, I always wondered who you reminded me of and that’s exactly it!
