The Happiest Place on Earth

Sorry for the tirade yesterday. I thought about taking it down today, but I’m not ashamed that I have bad days, err, sometimes, you know, bad weeks.

I hope that the people who are interested in looking at my blog at all are people who love me anyway, and know that I’m not ungrateful for my life. Just the opposite, I get frustrated with my mood swings because I do enjoy my life and feeling sad for no reason is annoying. And not being able to take medication that helps me without sacrificing my health is annoying. And yesterday I was annoyed and today?

Well, today I substituted Prozac with Disneyland! Hey, artificial happiness can come in all shapes and sizes, I don’t discriminate. And of course the best part was Jon playing hooky from work and joining us. Well, actually the BEST part was NO LINES.

It was EMPTY! Hot, but empty. And in three hours we did more rides than we did all summer.Thanks for the love, people, enjoy your pictures :)

(Disney and some  random fun from the last few weeks.)

Looks like so much fun! I haven't been to Disneyland since I was 3...pathetic, I know.
Don't ever feel ashamed of having bad days...without bad days, sometimes TERRIBLE days, we would never know the true joy of a GOOOOOOOOD day :)

I love these shots, love these kids and love, love, love YOU! Thank you for being the brave, honest soul you are. After 30 years, you still amaze me with your kindness, sincerity and resilience. Everyone needs a little artificial "upper" every now and again--today mine was pastry from Boston. I'm going "up" one way or another (on the scale at least!).

Those hats are great, and they are sitting on top of the sweetest little things ever! I am glad that you wrote the black post because how else would we know when you need us? I am glad you found some happiness at the happiest place on earth (well I want to insert some dirty joke here but don't want to offend anyone). We love you!!
