Yes, it's been over a week since I posted … and I promise to post again very soon. It's been a long week for me as my Dad went in for his stent procedure on Wednesday. Everything went really well and he is now home being pampered by Mom. It took more of a toll on me than I thought it would. Sure I was anxious Wednesday but what really did me in was being out of the house all day for three days straight. I am SUCH a routine-lover so not starting my day with the usual "coffee, Facebook, workout, shower, dog walk, house tidy, lunch" schedule really messed with my head! I haven't done "work" for weeks .. which stresses me out! I have my new club starting in 2 days, emails to send, orders to fill and on and on and on. However … I am learning to just calm the hell down and BREATHE! I actually have been literally stopping to inhale and exhale very purposefully all week and it has helped. I had a class scheduled for last night but I just couldn't do it … so what did I do? I cancelled it. Yay me! I just needed to decompress and spend the night in the basement crafting and watching movies with the family.
This weekend I really need to get to a few emails and such but you know what I've done? I've invited three of Alicia's "besties" over for an epic playdate and crafting session. We're going to spend the whole day making things for their Journey Girls (similar to the American Girl dolls). Sleeping bags, skirts, coffee cups … whatever we can come up with. Work will always be there.
Balance. Balance is good.
Dad is well and I'm taking time to enjoy my family.
Emails … and blog posts will wait.
Thanks for your patience.
I'll be posting again in the coming days … once I refill my cup.
Have a stampy Saturday xoxox
