Did that really all just happen?

Wow. What a crazy weekend.

It kind of all feels like a blur. Or a nightmare for a lack of better words. I'm exhausted and it took every bit of strength inside of me (which isn't much) to pull myself out of bed at 6:00 am this morning to get ready for work. Had I not taken Friday off due to the tragic circumstances, I so would have called in sick this morning because I really do feel sick. Perhaps it has something to do with the lack of sleep, lack of eating and the plethora of emotions that have been released in the last couple of days. I am beat.

My sister came home today. Thank you all for your prayers and comments. Your encouraging words and scripture references really helped and it means a lot. Thank you again.

Obviously the worst is over, thank God. However, we're well aware that this is not the end and there is bound to be trials and circumstances along this journey that will try an trip us up again. I just thank God that we're all okay, we're all alive and we're all making strides toward improvement.

My Dad wants to take us all to the Interstate Fair tonight to help get everyone's minds off of everything and have some good fun, fair food and have our stomachs in knots from all the rides! I am looking forward and I think it will be good to have that family time together, of which we have been lacking. I love my family so much and I am blessed that despite our challenges and circumstances (in which every family faces) I know we are always going to be there for one another.

It's cool outside today. Cool enough for a jacket! I wore a sweater and I even had to turn on the little heater by my feet. So, I am very happy that it will be this way tonight considering we will be going to the fair. I just can't enjoy the Fall Fair when it's hot and humid outside! This crisp, cool weather is perfect and funnel cake and candy apples sound amazing right now!! :)

Goodness, I am so exhausted. I hope I make it through these next two hours and I hope that I can enjoy the fair considering I feel like a zombie right about now.
