This is it!!! I am officially admitting defeat! After a week of exhaustion, headaches, a cold, & non-stop work, this is what I look like! I am SOOOOO happy that we're coming up on the weekend (and a long one at that). On top of it, I took next Thursday and Friday off from work so Brad and I can make a much needed trip to Pennsylvania to visit my grandfather. I'm looking forward to seeing him & taking the few days away from the normal, everyday, routine.
I wonder how I pack so much into my life, get so overwhelmed & we don't even have kids yet!?!? Oh my goodness, I can't even imagine that point. All I can say is when that moment comes, I will be clearing most of my responsibilities off of my plate only to add on sleepless nights, ballet lessons, baseball practices, parent/teacher conferences, etc., etc., etc. But, let's not think about that now... we're nowhere close to that point.
I do have to say, though, that after many breakdowns this week, I was inspired by a woman last night who is on our Relay for Life committee. Her husband was diagnosed with cancer & is putting up one heck of a fight, but there she was at our event Kick-Off, with a smile on her face & trying to make the best of what was around her. It makes me think, if somebody who is going through something so tragic can get through smiling, then I have no excuses! You have to admire somebody like that!
So, some way... some how... I have to figure out how to do A LOT less stressing, and a little more relaxing. This has become my new mission. Unfortunately, it's a lot harder than it seems.
