Too Much!

It has been a crazy couple of days! I over did it with the yard work between the garden on Sunday, yoga on Monday, and cutting grass on Tuesday…this girl is exhausted…..physically.

With CG and CM both on vacation work is extra tough. Too many bad things are happening there and one person is doing the work of three. Not just me all, of us are busting ass. I try really hard to stop and calm myself before I answer the phone because it’s not the accounts fault that we don’t have enough help but sometimes I know I’m short and to the point. Work is exhausting……mentally.

I knew how this week would be so I have been trying to smudge everyday. Is it just me or does everybody have to work this hard to stay positive? It’s really hard to not get sucked into all of the negative energy in a toxic environment.

I spent a lot of today thinking about my daughters behavior yesterday. She spent most of the night watching me and I’m still not positive why. When I was cutting the grass I would occasionally see her watching me and always from a different spot. She was kind of like The Elf on a Shelf 🙂

After a while she started talking about some of the girls at school. M fights with her mom everyday and her dad is really mean and she wants to run away. There is another girl who says that her mother hates her. Then she has friends that say not so nice things about their moms.

She still tells me everything but sometimes I wonder what she is really thinking. All I know for sure is that I am really lucky to have the kids that I do.  I hear the stories of what some of the kids are doing and I am overly blessed when it comes to mine.

I stopped at the fabric store on the way home. My apron class is tomorrow right after work and I didn’t want to rush when I picked out my fabric. I was very excited to find this fabric…in the garden 023How cute are these little yoga frogs?

It was actually the word ‘breathe’ that jumped out at me and made me pick it up. The class is a two parter so it won’t be done until next Thursday. I couldn’t wait that long to show you the fabric.

I have one party every summer and this year is the 11th annual girls night out. It is one month from today so I need to get busy. Every year I make a cd……I actually have quite the knack for it….this year the cd theme is disco. I promised PT last year that I would make a disco cd and here I am almost one year later asking you….what is your favorite disco song?…..-Zia

  1. Favorite disco song, wow that is a good one, how about “Funky Town” by Lipps Inc. You will have to post your final cd project, I would love to see the songs you came up with. The frogs cracked me up, I love them. I agree it does seem to take more work to be positive, it is to easy to be negative. I find myself falling into that trap of taking the easy way and being negative and being disappointed with myself for doing it. Sounds like you have a great kids which has to be a product of a great caring mother.

    • Thanks, I try and then I worry, it’s a vicious circle. I will definitely post the final list and thank you for your pick. I am relieved that I am not the only one who has to work so hard at staying positive, I was beginning to think it was just me. It’s almost Friday and then a long weekend, that’s a good thing!
