Good Day to All!!!
I am back and somewhat revived. I took your advise to heart and gave myself permission to take a break. (Jennifer- I'm open to knitting lessons! Would you be up for teaching me in January?) Over the past few weeks I've slowed down to a virtual stop with the exception of my children's book series which I have been happily tackling. I have quit one project (a Landmark course) which I initially felt great about and am now not so sure I made the right decision. I am however in the process of reminding myself that just because I quit one thing doesn't mean that I can quit everything. The rest of my projects have taken a backseat to more pressing issues. Which brings me to today...ahh, today, the Monday after Thanksgiving. I have successfully accomplished throwing a Halloween/birthday party, managed stress inducing appointments with Fabrizio (cardiologist, orthopedist, IEP, parent/teacher conference -two of which still require follow-ups), and a nonstop Thanksgiving weekend. Now I get a few hours to breath until I begin worrying about the cost of the upcoming month. Tomorrow we're taking Fabrizio to Disneyland which promises to be costly, Wednesday we begin Chanukah, and then a two week reprieve before Christmas.
It is fair to say that I am a worry wort. I'm pretty sure that I come by it naturally, after all if you know any of the women in my family you'd know that apples don't fall far from the tree.
