Same goes for me. When you see me, I look the same. Well, I may be over do for a haircut, but most generally speaking I put on a look, like the closed door. But inside, I was feeling overwhelmed and chaotic. Holding all the pieces of my responsibilities together, but not with any order. And with a little help from PMS emotionally I have been overflowing.
But then I decided I could not take the chaos my linen closet has become. I love to organize things, closets, toys, mail, paperwork, craft supplies, on and on. Oh how I get blissed out as I envision the serenity known to me as organization. First step in organizing the closet, empty it completely. Being a visual person, I need to see everything in one place to then move forward with the components that complete the closet as a whole.
As for me? Well, after my woe is me week, I released my stress with some socializing. J and the girls had some great quality time together. I caught up with friends with no children in sight demanding our attention. I escaped my reality in the movies, quite easily, with the most beautiful scenes of Greece compliments of Momma Mia, topped off with lunch that included Buffalo Wing Sauce and Blue Cheese. A beer one night and some appetizers. Sangria and a nice spread another night. Holy, moly talk about a world of difference. I can't forget the playdate for the girls that included fresh cupcakes, how splendid. (and a huge thank you to my girlfriends that reached out to me this week, it meant way more than you could ever know!)
Enough of a difference, to create this serenity. Can you hear singing when I open the closet door and see this? Can you hear singing because I've slept in, had breakfast in bed, and most importantly seized the opportunity to have time to myself. So thank you dear hubby for letting me recharge my batteries. Inside I feel harmony to start the week ahead that will bring about much more of what last week had to offer. It's amazing when I feel better how my home just seems to fall right into place, just like my linen closet.
I guess with out those Woe Is Me moments, you never can truly grasp how lucky you are. And here's to a week, I'm probably not going to want to remember! Can't wait for my
