Time keeps on slippin' into the future

I have been getting ready to start scrapbooking our Disney trip from October. My BFF is going back in May and i must say it has us all longing to go back. I just had to share these images from EPCOT because they are so funny! You can have your images emailed to you at home and luckily i did and i also saved them so now i have these great photos for our scrapbook.
other than that, life has been rollin' along. DS has started taking violin lessons and DD has been sick and not feeling well since December. She missed last week at school, she's not really sick, but not feeling well either. I have been in a serious funk myself. I don't even know what it is. I was/am going to therapy and that was helping, but i've sort of fallen into a slump and quit "working it" so to speak. I don't know what's wrong, but i wish it would go away!

Where has she been?

*photo taken by my DD from the middle seat of the minivan on the way to school*
yes indeed, where have i been? In a hole i think, or a pit maybe. I have certainly been in a funk. I was gone at the end of Feb. on Girl's weekend....that left me exhausted and in need for some time alone, not that i didn't have a lot of fun...just somehow i was overwhelmed by it this year. Then i was home a week and gone again last weekend on a weekend retreat with some ladies from my church to work on and plan things for our children's ministry. Again, fun but left me in the mood to hibernate.
I've had a lot going on in my head lately. It's been sort of hard to explain. Sort of like all the therapy and Bible studies and books i have been reading imploded on me and i am left trying to sort through and figure it all out. It's not really a bad just makes me want to sit in my bed and sort through it all, which is not so productive for real life. I am normally a total people person, and i have been withdrawing a lot lately. It concerns me a little but right now i am thinking it is a phase for contemplation and it will pass.
If it doesn't ...come drag me out of my house, ok?
I hope you are enjoying spring, and spring break! I am glad the sun is finally shining here!

girls weekend prizes.

I hand stitched these. I guess I got a little nuts..but it was fun!

several posts ago i showed you how i was making some drawstring bags...well, these are they.

I filled them with all sorts of relaxing and nurturing things that we could use for our "moontime" each month. If you click on the pictures to make them bigger you will be able to see the little tags on each item.

These were just a little way to remind us that being a woman is not a bad thing and that our monthly cycle shouldn't be treated as a curse, but as a time to slow down, reflect and learn from our extra sensitivity.

And honestly, who can get through it without chocolate???
