Hannah has cried almost the entire day.
I have gotten NOTHING done. Nothing at all.
I'm tired.
Most every room is messy.
I don't know what to make for dinner.

Part of me just wants to sit down and cry, but the other part just has to laugh. This is life - as mundane and unproductive as it is some days. One day I'll look back at these moments with fondness so I might as well enjoy them while they're here.

you've probably heard this song but go to and watch the music video to You're Gonna Miss This by Trace Adkins......It suddenly makes you want to enjoy the journey a bit you britt..

At first I didn't agree, but after the last year it makes sense. Read the words to, The Climb. Life never gets easier, it only gets harder, but it's all about the climb.
I know that sounds cheesy, but it's true.
Brit, think of everywhere you have been, all the things you've seen and everything you have done. Then think of all the things Hannah will see and do because of you!
Brit, you are amazing. Even though I am your older sister, you have always been an example to me! I love you and I am so glad I have been able to spend time with you the last few months.

I know exactly what you mean! We just had a VERY rough night here and Justin's got tests, I'm sick, and on and on...I'm so glad you posted this because it was just the reminder I needed today! Life is great. I'm going to try a little harder to just laugh and smile today.
You're the best! Love ya!

My sister told me at my baby shower to just get through the bad days because the next day is gonna be better (at least- there is a 98% chance). And- I totally know how you feel about not getting anything done. I had days when Steve would come home and I would be sitting there with Josh- me in my PJs and Josh still in his diaper- and Steve would say "what did you do today" and I wanted to throw something at him. But I decided that I kept Josh alive- and that is an accomplishment. :)

Brit-I am coming home this weekend and you and James are going on a date! I don't care where, how or what you do but I am watching Hannah! I am not taking no for an answer. Now you have to decide what night (Fri or Sat) and what you are doing. No arguing, just make plans.

I totally know the feeling! I've had many, many of those days! But I've learned the sun still shineshines and I can make it through, especially with Levi's help!

Brittany, do you remember me? I worked with you and Lacey at Subway! You and your family are so cute! Especially your little Hannah!
