It's not often that I feel lonely and depressed about living in Minot, but there are times when the reality of our situation starts to feel like a burden. It's usually around holidays when everyone is together and we are here. And even then I feel like me and Brian and the girls are able to create our own very personal family memories so it's not so bad. But there are times, like today, when the girls have been sick all weekend, Brian's pulled back-to-back alerts, my friends are making huge plans that I don't get to be a part of, and we missed yet another holiday with our family, that it is a little too much to handle. I know that I have so many blessings and that really our life here is pretty good. I do know that. Sometimes it just doesn't seem to be quite enough though.
