Well, well, well.
Look at what the cat coughed up.
I'm surviving over here. Just barely... but I'm pulling through like a duck swimming in jelly.
I've recently started taking an ashwagandha and rhodiola supplement and dandelion detox tea and my physical stress symptoms have calmed down to a dull roar. Not even a roar. More like a wee little mew compared to what was happening to my body. Physically, I feel SO much better and brighter.
The pills make me a little aggressive though. Like, super type-A aggressive about weird things:
I'm going to clean today!
DISHES! I HATE THEM! LET'S DO IT!
GET OUTTA MY WAY! AAAAGGGGHHHH!!!
DANG IT'S A LOVELY DAY!
And then I rip my shirt off like Hulk Hogan and flex my muscles while barking at my children like a Tibetan mastiff.
So life is still pretty poopy right now and I'm still stressed but I don't feel like I'm about to have a stroke anymore! Yay!
GOOD NEWS REPORT:
My husband finally found a job after being "self employed" for over a year. He's not exactly sure when it starts but it will pay well. The bad part of all of this is it's a travelling job that will have him away from home for weeks at a time. Meh.
I already scratched of my New Year's plans of opening a flea market booth. We got an 8x8 booth in a very large and popular flea market. Since we opened it on Saturday afternoon and it's Tuesday now, we haven't had a chance to add everything and decorate but just yet but it's about 3/4 full so far.
The downside is, the market only allows 5 articles of clothing per booth! WTF??!?! Almost the entire booth was supposed to be kids clothes! OMG, we're drowning in kid's clothes piled up in trash bags here and we can't afford to just give them away so I'm hoping maybe I can butter the market owners up to get them to be a little lenient with me.
So here's what we wore to church Sunday.
ME: Handmedown blouse over a handmedown ikat print sundress layered over leggings and a tank top because it was in the 30s that day.
MISS CEDAR: Handmedown cardigan, Christmas gift dress from her Mimi, electric melon tights with unseen gold threads woven in and her favorite brown boots!
Soooo how are you all doing? Have you been sleeping well? Are you brushing twice a day and flossing?
