Sorry, no freebies...

Normally I like to keep things light and fun but I guess I can't really do that today. Its one of those days that makes it difficult to be happy and I think I'm going to just put it down (or out) here for cathartic reasons. If you would prefer the freebies, don't worry, they will be back. I don't like to be like this for long and hopefully I won't.

I'm so down because my wonderful life has been slowly fading away for the past couple of years and last night was just a real scary night. My DH lost his job on Wall Street a little over two years ago and we have been living off of our savings. He opened a business, a chocolate store, and we just can't seem to catch a break. Sales are not what we were hoping they would be and we are going deeper into debt than out of... sighhhhh.

Last night, DH was so depressed that it literally hurt my heart. If there is such a thing as an empath, I would be pretty close to it. Whatever someone else is feeling, is what I am feeling. I just wanted to hug him and hold him and cry but he just wants to stand there and stare at the wall.... its just one of those kinda days... well, years really.

I am not going to say that we are not blessed because we are very, very blessed! My DD is the absolute best thing in the whole wide world and we have each other and knock on wood our health.... we better have that since we don't have any insurance! (Thankfully DD does!)

OK,I'm not going to go on and on, its just not productive but I just had to get some of it out. Its just one of those days... sighhhh.

And for those of you who hung in there and read my heart thats out here on the web, I promise I'll be having a wonderful new Christmas alpha coming soon!

Big Hugs to all my friends!

Vroooom, Vroooooom

OK, I will admit that I've watched a Nascar race or two in my life... well, watched most of it at least... lol. I married a racing person and as the saying goes, if you can't beat 'em join 'em... so I've joined, lol. If you or someone you know is a racing fan, then this quickpage may be of interest to you. I purposefully made this racing generic... if you race on a dirt track on the weekends or you've gone to a race at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte or if you just have a lil one who likes to zoon around in his/her car, this will work for ya.... have fun! And remember, if you like it, please say so in the comments. And if you use it, I really, really, really would love to see it! And here's another incentive to leave a comment... I have more racing themed goodies to give out if I know that you appreciate this kind of thing! Thanks for coming to my humble blog!

Oh yes, the letters (and the white area of the frame) are empty so you can either slide a picture behind or add your favorite fun paper to make it unique. I've left space for journaling too but then I'm sure you could have figured that out all on your own... lol. :D
