Maybe I just need to start each day swingin'

And by that I mean boxing. All the stressed from the past week seemed to melt away as I pulled on the gloves.
Of course it helped that I knew that today my dh was taking MIL out for the day. But before they left, things got really hairy. He was frustrated with her b/c of her hearing (or lack thereof), but I didn't get all jacked up.
Now the other problem though, one that another Sparkler mentioned in one of my other posts - when stressful things END is when I start to feel all bingey. And I know why - the amount of stuff I've put off "until we're back to normal" comes crashing down on my head. Today is a mini crash, but I'm telling myself ONE thing at a time. I can't look at the whole list and expect it will all get done while they're gone for the day. No, I can get ONE thing done. And then, if I feel like it, I can get ONE more thing done. And so on. That will be my mantra today. Do ONE thing. Just one. Then worry about what's next when you're done with ONE.
Yay for Today! I love being nearly alone!
