But on the bright side, the temperature is supposed to rise, the kidlets are coming tonight and we have been missing them badly. We didn't see them last week because of the accident. I get a day off on Sunday (my first day off since Jan 4).
Warning, I'm about to digress for a second....
Last week I was visiting some of Sweetie's family with him and they have a sweet little baby who I am just stupid-in-love with. I would be perfectly content with doing nothing but sitting and holding that baby for hours on end. It occurred to me, while I was doing just that, that it is so strange that everything can be up ended and chaotic all around you and all it takes is one small thing to shift your focus and give a new purpose to your stress filled life.
So, this Sunday morning, I am going to make breakfast for my kidlets and we are going to sit around in our pajamas and eat pancakes with whipped cream and blueberry syrup and then we will cuddle up on the couch with a dog and a blanket and watch SpongeBob until I can feel every ounce of intelligence run out of my brain, and I am going to have my focus shifted.
I wish there was a way to bottle that feeling up.
What shifts your focus when you're stressed out?
Sweetie is recovering nicely and should be able to return to work next week. The vehicle was a total loss but the insurance company has been fantastic.
