I do know I’m not the only person in the world who deals with stress, obviously, nor do I claim to have the most stress filled life, but regardless of all of that, I am only living MY life… so it’s my stress I have to deal with. It’s been a busy few weeks with the end of the school year upon us again. My 10 year old is wonderful, but he isn’t a saint by any means so there is the stress of dealing with his teachers, his attitude, his homework, and now standardized testing is on going, at least until summer break begins. Then there’s the crafting and creating of goodies for my etsy shop. This isn’t so much a stress… I enjoy it, being able to do everything else life demands and throws my way and therefore not finishing things in the time-frame I had hoped is incredibly stressful. (I am a planner, through and through.) Add a long list of obligations on top of the daycare business and well…. the only time I get time to think, craft, or blog is when I put off other things I should be doing or lose precious sleep.
I’m not trying to throw myself a pity party, honestly my brain just felt as though it were turning to mush. So… I just wanted to drop a line and say that I’m alive, kicking, crafting, and trying my best to do well and stay on top of things, including my blog, but until I check a few more things off my list I probably won’t be able to update again. Now that I’ve said that I’m sure things will smooth out in a couple of days. *sigh* Such is life. This too shall pass, things could always be worse, and all of those other silly phrases. I should be grateful for my stresses. I’m trying to be!
April is my spirit animal.
