How was your weekend? Despite that fact that it was Oscars weekend (watching the Oscars has been one of my absolute favorite things to do since I was a little girl!), truthfully, this weekend was pretty crap-tastic. I really don't like to make the blog an outlet for trivial complaints. We all have problems, and an inspiration blog isn't the place to vent them. That said, I have to say it - this weekend was just plain sucky. Robbie finally got a break after the band's 5-week winter tour last week, but after just a few days at home, he got a call on Saturday evening that his sweet grandmother wasn't doing well. So he left immediately and drove through the night to go be with her. I'm hoping to meet him out there over the next day or so, so that we can spend some time with her before he leaves to go back on the road - but the winter storm that's supposed to come through may force him to head home early. My grandmother has also not been well over the last few weeks, and although they have both lived long and absolutely incredible lives, this is a difficult time. In fact, this month has been difficult in general - lots of loss, lots of stress, lots of time away from my husband, lots of curve balls, lots of winter blahs. There is always a bright side though, and February's complete lack of awesomeness has made me even more excited for March. Yay spring! Springtime always makes everything better, doesn't it?
