Some Stuff. About the Stuff.

I won a blogging give-a-way, dear reader! I did! I'm having a lucky streak, I think. TaLaisa over at TaLaisa's Bead Drawer put up a post with a picture of the earrings I won from this contest. And they came in the mail yesterday. And I love them! They are beautiful! Thank you, TaLaisa.

The Motherboard is having a fabulous give-a-way for her Blogging Anniversary. Go enter to win!
----------------------------------
My good friend, Julie P. (Rarely Home Mom), put this video on her website, and since Blogger won't let me embed YouTube videos (that I am aware of), please go view it here (at Julie's). I LOVED this video. Loved, loved, loved it, and I wish more celebrities, entertainers, and news people would take this election more seriously. Not only is this video segment honest and refreshing, it's a tad hilarious at parts. Not as hilarious as Tina Fey impersonating Sarah Palin (*snort), but hilarious none-the-less. Craig Ferguson is just awesome.

*P.S. The link I provided didn't show the entire Tina Fey video, but this link will.
---------------------------------
Thank you for all of your kind words. Again. As I receive from you every month. Every blasted month. Because I am always embarrassed when I have to get on here and rant about my PMS induced depression every four weeks. I'm sure many people (as I mentioned before) are tired of hearing my plight; it has to get old after a while. In fact, I guarantee you I have lost readers because of my depressing posts. Why stick around in such a dismal place? Sadly for me, however, this depression doesn't abate in the way I need/want it to; my depression is real and conniving and the fight is the same over and over and over and I am dealing with it in the best way I know how. Kind of like my asthma. But I already told you about that. And for what it's worth, the self-pity wallowing only lasted two full days this time. Only two days! Not seven! That's progress, dear reader. Monumental progress.
Anyway, thank you. Your support gives me leeway to continue discussing and writing about my crazy mind. Like my friend Julie told me:
I actually appreciate what you say and work out here on the blog, Cheryl. Because I don't have depression, it's hard for me to understand it...But I applaud you for recognizing it and working your way through it. It's admirable and beautiful.
------------------------------------------
And you know what? I sure love you, dear reader. You may not know it by the lack of comments, but I'm still reading your words; I do care about what is going on in your lives. The other thing depression takes from me is a motivational desire to do...anything. My apathy spills over into my blogging, and thus the lack of comments. But I do care, inside. I do.
I just wanted you to know.

I'm glad you hear you are feeling better, but I am GIDDY about the Tina Fey link. Thanks! Our TV is still down after our storm so I've been a little out of the hilarity loop. Thanks for making my day!

I just miss you when you aren't feeling up to anything because you brighten my day everyday! Here's to an uplifting, fun and PMS free weekend!

I followed your link over to the Craig Ferguson video and Ethan and I shared a lot of laughs, and a lot of "amens". Thanks for the link on that one. I always liked Craig, now I love him. Amens across the board.

Cheryl...you're just great. I like you keeping it real and talking about when you are depressed...I still suppress!

Love ya!

P.S. You can embed YouTube clips if you want. Look for the code to embed at the page on YouTube and copy it. Then when you are in the compose window here on your blog...click over to "edit html" tab (instead of "compose") and paste the code there...Voila...YouTube embeded on your post!

I love that Tina Fey/SNL/ Palin video. It is so awesome and funny. I love the Hillary parts. I will be linking people to you from me because I wanted to post it but now I don't have to.

Hope all is well.

Hey Cheryl,
Don't ever stop being you on this blog. Even on depressing days. I know I can't speak for everyone, but being here through your down days just makes me happier for you on the up days! And your honesty/openness is one of the things I love best about you. So keep on keepin' on. :)

Awesome! the Craig Ferguson (I adore him!) was funny and true and I'm glad you're feeling better.
