Does anyone else have those crazy days where you have a whole list of things that need to get done, and you feel so overwhelmed it almost seems better to crawl under the covers and hope it all goes away? Yeah, that's me this weekend. I see people on facebook who say YES ITS FRIDAY. All I can think is this is the beginning of a LONG WEEKEND. UGH. I have so many things I need to do: finish going through bags of clothes that were given to me for my kids, decide what I want to keep, what we are donating, then I have to drive the donations to a drop off point, next grocery shopping. Which normally I enjoy with my whole family, but today I just want to get in and get out. Put everything away, then I have yard work to do . People throw trash in my yard, then I have to burn what I can to keep the trash level down, next I need to mow, and get the kids toys picked up. Well, i guess we should do that before we mow. LOL. Then I have to get the dog spayed, and she has to have another eye surgery. The surgery center is an hour away from the house, I know its far, but it costs so much less than my regular vet. I guess I just feel like everything needs to get done RIGHT NOW AND RIGHT AWAY. That is what causes the most anxiety and stress. There is more, but now it just sounds like I am droning on and on. I don't want to bore people to death. I know that I just need to focus on one thing at a time. Cross it off the list then move on to the next, and if it takes weeks or longer then that is ok. The world won't come to and end if I don't spay my dog right this second. Most importantly, BREATHE. Anyway, thank for letting me rant.

    I can imagine that would all be so stressful. I know with me when I drink my formula it really helps me focus on what I need to do and make me feel calmer. Maybe give that a shot. When I haven’t had my formula for a while I feel the anxiety building and frustration. I hope all is going well for you!
