This week is kicking my ass. It’s been so stressful that I had to use ass, rather than booty. It’s been that bad.
Work is going crazy and I haven’t been able to work out and I feel like the kids’ activities are slowly taking over our lives. I know that this is just the next stage in parenthood, where we play taxi cab and juggle our jobs and all while trying to eat dinner before 10pm, but right now it sucks.
And I’m exhausted.
Both physically and mentally. I find myself zoning out during dinner, just staring out the window behind Huz. My brain feels foggy and it takes me a few minutes to process information. I don’t think I need to be medicated or anything, I just have an overwhelming amount of information flying around in my head.
The only thing that calms me down is just repeating, over and over in my head, “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.” I was in a particularly stressful situation yesterday and anxiety started to kick in. I could feel all my emotions, specifically my all-out bawling emotions, rising to the surface. So I just started saying, “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus” and soon enough I’d calmed down quite a bit.
I know this is probably just a season and it will pass. I just need it to pass soon.
What do you do to combat stress in your life?
