I am stressed. Today is a very busy day for me and I made a point to get up in the morning and do some prep work before we leave to work. However I woke up at 6:50am- 20 minutes late! So i rushed to get ready, keeping in thought that I work at both my jobs today. And then I went to make our lunches – Travis made breakfast! How sweet!- and then Chloe was freaking out because she wanted me to hold her up to the fish tank to drink. Then I couldn’t find my backpack to put my laptop into. Stress. Then I remember we’re having people over to dinner. This means also that I then need to do some necessary prep work. (frozen chicken is not fun to eat-thawing is good.) Asa result, I was driving with Travis to Cafe D and felt the beginning of a headache. That is a big thing because I usually get sick from them and throw up- I don’t have time for that today.
Anyways, I’m at the cafe for another hour before I walk to work. What a good time to breath slowly and understand everything will be fine. I have realized that if I stop worrying then the world still keeps on turning! This was a break through about a year ago. (go Alexis!)
I will do quiet time and relax.
It is possible.
Stress is lame.
I can do this.
Let the stress go.
I once heard that women have a harder time with stress and they are more likely to become physically ill because of stress. What’s up with that?! Do you have problems with stress?

Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
