OK. I'm Over Myself

Yesterday was a tough one. I overreacted and feel like such an ass for getting so upset about something as stupid as a snow day.

'Tis the season, no?

A friend did come to my rescue for a few hours yesterday and I couldn't be more grateful. I got done what needed to be done at work and (thank God for remote access!!) didn't have to take a vacation day after all.

I have a post-it on my desk. It's been there for years now. I can't remember where it came from, but it's a simple reminder:


Breathe sister, breathe. Make way for grace and forgiveness and don't forget to breathe....




I am, once again, counting my blessings and trying to remember to breathe.

I totally know how you feel. Sometimes we're just holding it together with frayed string and old glue.

I had a post-it hanging on my mirror for years: Haste is a form of violence.

I'm glad you're over it.

I hear you Girlfriend - sometimes it is sooo hard to pick our battles and let what needs to be - be...
Love the simple reminder - maybe we could have it tatooed on the inside of our eyelids???
Hapy Holidays! xoxoxox

don't worry the snowday was felt across the country LOL. My kids were home for 3 days, AND they missed their school play and party night due to all the joyful snow.. sigh.

Because we homeschool we don't normally get a snow day and my kids get pissed! Ha Ha Hee Hee! But we are going on a week and a half of no school and even the kids are going crazy. They asked if we can have school on Friday. We are dorks.
I hate missing work for any reason. Just like I can't be late. It's an anal thing.
God Bless and have a Merry Christmas
