I'm a fairly laid back person, so when I get more than say, three things on my to do list, I either begin hyperventilating or I go to the mall. Yesterday was definitely one of my more stressed out days. I began the day by hyperventilating and shooting off an email to my closest friends begging them to pray for me because my fears (of everything) were out of control, I was stressed, and I was ready to drive a Karate Kid Crane Kick to the center of my computer screen because it kept crashing.
Here's a little example of how my inner thoughts might go when I review my to do list on any given morning that DOESN'T involve prepping for a trip to China in a week (so you can imagine what a schizoid I am now):
- Prep crock pot dinner - IN MORNING!!!
I did end up taking the boys to the mall yesterday. I didn't need anything, but I needed to be away from my computer and my house where the to do lists and Autumn's room, piled high with everything for our trip, is overwhelming me. It was nice and relaxing. I even had a Peppermint Mocha and found some activity books for the boys for the plane and a Mulan doll for Autumn on clearance at the Disney store. I might have to go to the mall again today.
