In Between Christmas And New Years

Why is it between these two holidays you feel very lost. The days and hours blend together. Let’s add to that I have started my new job. Worked for two days, off for two days, work for two evenings, off for three days. I’m going to be off a little for a few days. Wish me luck.

Tomorrow I have the nieces and nephews over for some auntie time. We do arts and crafts, eat some pizza, drink some hot chocolate, read a book, and watch a movie. It’s my time to have a little fun with them. I just wish I could get them all together. That would require way to much brain power and dealing with their parents and their schedules. Why can’t people just be civil?

I have increased my vitamin D due to lack of energy. Its only been a week but I am still struggling with energy. I want to get a handle on this since I will have a rotating schedule that will most definitely have an effect on my sleep, exercise and eating habits.

We traded in our 12 year old truck today. My husband did most of the dealings but I still had a full on anxiety attack in the middle of the dealership. I don’t melt down but I can only imagine what my face looks like while I’m going through it. I’m still having effects from it but that will eventually go away. Not sure yet what we will do with my car. We can always sell it or refinance it. Just need to think about it.

I see so many posts of I’m just doing me. I’m not dealing with the drama this year. Guess what, no matter what you do or how you live your life there will be drama. It will happen. It’s all in how you handle yourself. It’s all in how you react. You can’t escape drama but you can escape the stress of it by changing your mind set. Choose to have an open mind and actively listen. Choose to make sure your message has been received how you intended it to be received. Choose love and kindness over hate and meanness. Choose to be educated by truth in stead of ignorance.
