Sometimes I am just overwhelmed. I know I do this to myself because A. I am a control freak, B. I am a nurturer and C. No one else will step up - but it is still overwhelming at times. I know the proper way to handle it when I feel this way is to take baby steps and do a little at a time but I just want to crawl into bed with my dog and pull the covers over my head. I know I should not let the voices of others bother me but sometimes they do. I know I need to cut myself some slack and not take on everyone's burdens but I don't always give myself a break and I usually take on someone else's burdens. I know!! But knowing actually makes me feel worse because I know better - I do. Now to learn to translate what I know into what I do... emoticon

:) Here's to translating what we know into what we do!

Back from the Fair...

Monday, March 18, 2013

So the fair went pretty good this year. Of course I am exhausted! I can't be prouder of the 4-Hers though - what a great group!!!! Kids and parents were super amazing this year!! Those of you who have done, have kids who have done or are leaders for 4-H know how stressful fair can be and how great it is when you have parental support.

Food - I love fair food... fried, sticky, sweet, salty.... so bad for you... But I did OK I think. I didn't just throw it all away you know? I started my days with fresh fruit and a cheese stick and I drank tons of water. The booth with the wraps was amazing and they were pretty healthy. The deep fried zuchinni and the garlic fries were definitely not spark approved but were soooo good.... And I shared them with several others instead of eating the whole batch myself. I am not going to worry about it but am hoping back on track today.

Today is going to be a great day!

    I hear you about fair food. I love it too and they only take place one time of year, right?. Being from Iowa it seems weird to talk about fairs at this time of year. Around hear we have to wait until July and August.

No time to get sick...

Friday, March 08, 2013

I woke up with a sore throat, headache and cough this morning. I have no time to be sick with fair coming up next week. Do we ever really have time to be sick though? Not really! Vitamin C and echineacia with breakfast. I am planning soup for lunch and maybe dinner. I'm going home after work and going to bed! Back to the chiropractor today at lunch time as whatever she did yesterday afternoon made my back worse. If I can nip this in the bud I will be so happy!


I did it!

I am proud of myself today! I seem to have diffused the drama from yesterday successfully and didn't get sucked into the middle of it! It took considerable thought, care and tact but I think all parties are pretty well satisfied with the result. I did not engage in anything negative and it really didn't wear me out too badly! Yea!

    Hi RENEAT,
:) It's a challenge; that's what it is!

Drama, drama, drama

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

What's with drama??? We've got some serious drama going on in our 4-H community. Some people seem to thrive on it... Me? It just exhausts me. Truly wipes me out. I'm trying to stay as far away from it as possible but it's tough when I am one of the leaders and the one they all look to to "fix" things. So I will try to do what I can but I refuse to let this drama drag me down. Lord knows I can do that all by myself, right? LOL Hopefully this ill wind will blow through quickly as we only have a week until the fair... makes me tired just thinking about it. emoticon emoticon
