Depression Sucks!

I know that I have been MIA for a few weeks.  Well, the truth it has sort of been by choice.  I haven't really wanted to blog lately.  I am not sure why.   I guess you could call it writer's block, the summer blahs, I just haven't wanted to do it. 

Things have been kind of difficult for me, swinging from really great highs to debilitating lows.  Yes, I do deal with depression on a daily basis.   I am going to spare you my laundry list of everything that I feel has gone wrong.   I don't really want sympathy.  Somewhere in the back of my head, I know that things could always be worse.  And while the last month has just been a rough patch,  if I were really truthful with myself, this week has been full of blessings. 

I really am trying to look at things with an attitude of gratitude.   I know that there are lessons for me to learn and I am trying to find the meaning.   Just know that my posts will be scattered or non-existent, but I will be back to blogging as soon as I can.

The Smurfs: A Magical Adventure

 I am so happy to see that the Smurfs are back and better then ever.   The Smurfs used to be one of my favorite cartoons.  I am so happy to introduce the magical world of the Smurfs with my own children.    If you loved the Smurfs too, you will want to own The Smurfs: A Magical Adventure on DVD. 

Get your Smurf on with this 2-disc set of 10 Smurftacular Episodes! In a hidden village dwells a clan of magical creatures, living in mushroom houses and taking showers with dewdrops. They’re those international celebrities known far and wide as the Smurfs — and they’re back on DVD. This itty-bitty powder-blue crew, including Brainy, Lazy, Vanity and Smurfette, is led by the wise, gentle and 542-year-old Papa Smurf. Gargamel, the local evil wizard, is forever scheming against the tiny team but our little friends outsmurf him every time! The Smurfs may only be three apples high, but they left miles of smiles on the faces of Saturday morning cartoon fans from 1981 to 1989! Smurf it up again with this colorful collection of superior Smurftainment!
