Need a minute

Days like today...

I am thankful for everything I have.  And I wouldn't trade it for the world.

But this mommy needs a time out.

The kids have extra energy.  I have even less.

A research paper and PowerPoint presentation is due and worth 24% of my grade.

Blessed to have shop orders but I don't have the nap Izzy is supposed to be taking to start them.

It's too cold outside to take the kids out to play.

Trying to clean to calm my nerves.  Can't seem to get it clean enough.

Popped a handful of dark chocolate chips into my belly & brewed a cup of hot cocoa.  Aiming for a little comfort.

But it's days like this I remember that I should be thankful for these problems because that means...

my kids are healthy.

I have the opportunity to go back to school.

happy to know that I've finally found sewing.  It calms my whole being.

we can afford the heat and it's warm inside.

a little bit of Lysol never hurt a house with kids into everything and if that's the worst thing I do when fighting anxiety, at least it's productive.

some of the smallest things in life can make someone smile and they barely cost a thing.
