capacity

Hello besties...if you are all still out there.  I've been at capacity lately and haven't had time for blogging.   I've been seeing a lot of articles lately on how stress affects your body and I can see it clearly in my face.  I've aged.  A part of it is that my job forces me to run on constant adrenaline.  I like it.  It's challenging.  But when running on adrenaline is combined with trying to juggle all the other areas in my life, it can turn into stress.  I need to take breaks.  To squeeze my kids tighter.  To make them laugh harder.  To have the ordinary boring days that I enjoy so much.  To realize that I can't be two places at once.  I am not complaining.  I am thankful to have this problem of over scheduling.  In light of yesterday's events especially, I have so much to be thankful for. 

Blogging has been on the back burner lately.  Hopefully, I will pop up in you reader again soon, and my comments will appear on your posts. 

I can only write this right now because my **Spoonk** mat is under my neck, I'm sipping green tea, have a thick layer of YES to Cucumbers Calming Night Cream on my face, and laughed and played games with my kiddos before bedtime. Amen to ordinary nights. And peace be with those whose days are not ordinary right now. 

**Promise a post on my spoonk mat soon!
