Past the Point of No Return  
So. Hello, friends. Remember me? I used to have a blog in this spot.

But I've been overwhelmed lately. It leaves little time to be pithy on livejournal.

I had a full on spewing hot, molten crazy-red in the face-heart palpitations-meltdown on Thursday afternoon. In front of people. Nice, right?

Since then, I've made the decision to be much more Zen. Yes, I have nine million and four appointments, engagements and tasks to be completed this week. Will they get done? Most likely. Will I stress and have nightmares about leaving something unfinished? No, I will not.


No. No, I won't. I'll ask for help. I will prioritize. I WILL NOT AGREE TO DO ONE MORE THING without first consulting God, my husband, my horoscope and Abbey the yellow lab. I will not take on more than a normal human being can do. Besides, my niece and nephew are staying with us this week, and the entertainment value is HIGH. I don't want to miss out on that.

Plus, I'm not cute when I do the meltdown thing.

And we know being cute is high on the list of Very Important Things.

It's at least number six.

Being cute is DEFINITELY on the list of Very Important Things when you're having a melt-down. Definitely!

(I hope you have a stress-free week)

This is on my news feed, coincidentally!

1) *snugs*

2) I have a hard time saying no to things when I know I am capable of doing whatever it is. Just because you're capable of completing a task, however, doesn't mean you should. It's a balance I'm still trying to learn myself.

3) Being cute is Very Important. Said task can be more easily accomplished in cute shoes. Specifically, these.

4) Here. This should help.

personally i like xanax for moments like those, however it has nasty effects on some people (my ex shot himself on it) so it's not something to be taken lightly.

sometimes zen works just as well.

*Hugs* We all get there some time or the other. Hope your life gets a lot more stress free really soon.
