    You’re so in my thoughts and prayers that I woke up and my body automatically made breakfast cookie dough cereal. Weird!

    Anyway, sweet Gina, I am so sorry all this dookie is happening. What’s amazing, though, is that I’m sure any one of your readers/bloggie friends would let you stay with her anytime! Seriously, I’m sure the 56 people above me wouldn’t mind, either!

    Sending love and hugs! xoxoxoxo

    Its things like this that make us stronger and you are so strong girl! I hope everything goes well with the move, I know your mom will be such a great help! xoxo

    Hey girl! Hope you’re feeling better soon… Not to be the PC police, but “gypsy” actually refers to the Romani people (a group targeted by Nazis during WWII) so it can def come off as racially insensitive when used to mean homeless..

      i’m sorry- i totally didn’t mean it like that

      • Dynamics on December 6, 2010 at 1:47 pm

        In the United States a gypsy was considered “a laborer who moves from place to place as demanded by employment”. Gina, in my opinion your term was appropriate and I am sure most of your readers took it the way you meant. Hugs

        I know! And I’m sure everyone else knows, too… You are clearly not racist/a bad person- I’m not sure if Shakira knows or if anyone has said anything to her regarding her use of the word.. But that girl is ca-razy (evidence= Shewolf vid). Thanks for changing it 🙂 Reason #1238021704 I lurve your blog! 🙂

    I’m sooo sorry this is all happening during an already stressful time. Deployments are no joke, and it makes me so angry that people don’t have any compassion or kindness. You know you are amazing, as so many other people have said. Just know we’re cheering for you!!! So excited to you’ll be heading home with your mom!

  7. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on December 6, 2010 at 9:42 am

    Aww I’m sorry Gina. I can’t even imagine how difficult this must be for you, but I’m sure it will all turn out for the best in the end. Have a good day and keep your chin up! 🙂

  8. Jennie on December 6, 2010 at 10:54 am

    As a born and raised Arizona girl, you are definitely making the right choice! 🙂 And whoever said that mom’s make everything better was right on the money! Hope that you and your mom have safe travels back to Tucson, and thank you for showing us how to take a bad day and find the good that lies within it.

  9. Christine (The Raw Project) on December 6, 2010 at 11:06 am

    So sorry and sending good vibes, hang in there!

  10. Christine on December 6, 2010 at 11:28 am

    Sorry about your situation, but on the bright side I noticed and love the Borat reference in this post’s url. Thanks for the Monday morning smile. 🙂

  11. Allison on December 6, 2010 at 12:24 pm

    Vegan deserts, friends, parties, and moms can always make the worst situations better!!! Im happy that you are almost back home where there will be much less stress and much more happiness!! I hope you have a safe and super fun trip!

    I’m sorry, girl! Hope your Monday has turned out beter!

  16. Nicole on December 6, 2010 at 4:21 pm

    It’s a shame that you’re having to go through this at all, especially so close to the holidays and with your husband deployed. I’m sure this goes without saying, but leave the tears in the past and look to the future with a smile on your face. This was a learning experience and moving back to Tucson will be so good for your soul. 😀
