this post has no title

it's been a helluva week.

i worked 50 hours {yes FIFTY!} this week. feels like i haven't been home. like i haven't seen the family i live with or the dude i share a bed with, cause i've basically been at the office all day everyday. but that's the least of the worries. my mother-in-law got her updates on her cancer. it's confirmed the cancer isn't in her throat - only in her stomach. that's a huge relief. but treatment won't begin for another three weeks & it's not official that she will be accepted for this specific treatment.

ugh, cancer & its crap. it all just sucks.

i'm not usually one to write a pity story on my blog. it's just not me. maybe it's because i'm trying to find the good in everyday life & that's what i enjoy focusing on. but as i sat down to finally write a post this week i couldn't find anything uplifting to type. i looked for pictures that masked the true feelings of this week but couldn't find a single one. & for a while i've struggled with trying to fake this blogging thing {sheesh i sound awful}. seriously though, it wasn't until i read this post that i got the courage to vent. i want my readers to know that i view life as half full. that i'm an optimistic person. i love my life, family & my God. but sometimes things suck & you have crappy weeks that seem to never end. you find yourself in funks that you try to shake off but can't.

that's how this week has been. it's been a rough week over here in the brotherton household. i'll be glad to see it over. #endrant

thank you for those who continually send support & kind words for my mother-in-law. it's been a long battle & we're hoping this is finally the end. xoxo
