my emotional stress load, this week especailly, has been a roller coaster ride.
up and down.
with all the happenings in my family...
( grandma's stroke, grandpa's surgery and all the continued running about after surgery, my cousin ellen's passing and coping with now 'unfixable' issues and of course keeping up with my own family's schedules...)
has just been overwhelming!
so, for the first time ever ( if you can believe it! )
Me, Myself, and I, decided last night while at my hall crop that I just
NEED A DAY.
a day to absorb, to catch up mentally and emotionally, a day to unwind a bit, and a day to have with my family.
most of you know me well enough to know that my life is always on the fast track, flying by the seat of my pants, one event after the other, cram as much as i can in a day...but i am not afraid to admit that for as much as you may think 'kim can do it all'...i AM only human and it does catch up with me too sometimes and i feel down and overwhelmed....these days happen to us all and i find no shame in sharing my defeats this week with my friends and admitting "surrender" for just one day!!
i refer to 'the first time ever' because today courtney had a dance competition, and i just felt for my sanity's sake, that it was one i needed to miss.
otherwise, it would have been yet one more day full of stress and anxiety and i really didn't think i could deal with that today.
i just made me a hot cup of herbal ginger peach tea, and made miss courtney a cup of candy cane hot chocolate and we are chillin' in out jammies still and it's already 12:13pm!!!
she has a room that needed some desperate TLC and i have more than enough to liesurely accomplish myself around here!
here's to a much needed mental recovery ME DAY!!!
( no guilt, no regret, no cares )
