When it rains, it pours ......

Tuesday, April 30, 2013


I know that stuff happens. I know this. but why must it happen all at once????
And what do I do in times like this??? I hide and eat. So I'm back to drinking cokes and eating chocolate. (I guess I could be doing worse things) I can't do anything about the problems, but I can give myself a moment of feel good junk. The good thing is all of this craziness has kept me moving so my weight hasn't gone up ..... yet.

And next week ...... more fun begins. DECONSTRUCTION on the house! Am I ready for it? I got the patio and the back of the house cleared away so my junk won't be in their way. But I haven't started on the inside. I still don't have any boxes to even begin. I have crystal in the cabinets where the main part of the work will be done. I've got to get that boxed up and moved to a safe place, like NOW! ....... And hubby might end up having to take a business trip in the middle of my deconstruction. ..... yay me! I think I will have another piece of chocolate.

Today is a half rest day. The kids and I are going on a road trip as my daughter put it. It's a 30 minute drive, an hour or so thing, then 30 minutes back. ..... then back to work.

So need to work on my letting go. .... Doubt if that will happen anytime soon.

Hope everyone is doing ok and having a great week!

    Hang in there -- wouldn't life be boring without any stressful moments? Just imagine how great it will be once this project is done.

    Stress is a part of life - sometimes less, sometimes more. Enjoy the chocolate - just not too much! :)

    Construction work can be very stressful. Why not just take a deep breath, get some boxes from your local grocery store - they are usually pretty solid, and think about how beautiful your home will look once the construction is done. Try to make the negative into a positive. And then have a nice piece of dark chocolate which will release the feel good hormones in your head! emoticon emoticon

Just please don't drink any more soda. It is just rotting out your insides. Did you ever see what it does to the paint on cars? Imagine what that is doing to your gut. I stopped drinking soda before it became vogue. We only have one body.

Good luck with everything! You have a great attitude about things so I know you will get through this with flying colors!

    Stress happens. I always reach for food when I'm stressed too. Good luck.
