Stress, thy name is "Life"
Saturday, May 25, 2013
My daughter and granddaughter moved in with us week before last. Then they moved out again. Today they came back, this time to stay, I think. After the initial shock has worn off, I’m ready for this to happen. I’m happy to have my granddaughter in a more positive place, even if it takes some adjustment. I’m glad but I’m sad also. Divorce can be messy and is so stressful. But I thgouth I was just fine and dandy with this situation. Unfortunately, my emotional side isn’t ready for it AT ALL. I’ve had an over eating frenzy of epic proportions! Ok, it’s not that bad but it’s obviously how I’m taking out my upset.
I know we all have out ways of working through our problems. When I’m upset, I tend to sleep less and exercise more. It can even make me sick. But right now, I feel I have to project a strong, capable woman for both my daughter and granddaughter. I have to keep my chin up, even though it hurts to see my child in this situation. My husband is also very upset right now.
I guess this is a time to hunker down and be together as a family, my husband has planned a cookout. I know, for myself, I have to work on balance. I plan to exercise but without going overboard. Food will take more focus. I will be conscious with eating and keep with doing more and eating less.
I’ll let y’all know how it all ends. Please pray for my younger daughter! In the meantime, “ten mucho cuidado” means “take good care” and that’s something we all need this weekend! All the best!
