  • Dealing with Stress and the Stomach

    { 152 comments }

     When I am super stressed or anxious one of the first symptoms I experience is digestive issues. It seems to be one of the ways that my body physically manifests the emotional stress of anything from a job interview to an argument to receiving really bad news. I have had this post in the "to [...]

  • Pausing

    { 13 comments }

    It seems I'm having to really work for this vacation as this week is off the charts busy. Recently, I've tried to drop the whole, "oh my god I'm so busy" thing. I say yes to (most of) the things that make me (off the charts) busy. Honestly though who isn't "busy?" The things that [...]

  • How Not To Deal

    { 47 comments }

    I don't know that there is much more I can say about myself over the past few days other than the absolute fact that I have been a little bit of a disaster. In all fairness, I do have quite a few stressful/emotional situations occurring simultaneously but I can't say that I'm doing the best [...]

  • Busy Week Eats and Lollihop Winner

    { 3 comments }

    In case you haven't noticed, this week has been a little crazy and I have been focused on things other than the blog. Apologies. Even when I'm busy and stressed, I try my best to get good meals in. It can be a challenge because sometimes I lose my appetite when I'm stressed and the last [...]

  • Stress Less

    I am far from perfect. There are many things that I need to work on in life. I will spare you from the laundry list for now (we’re all a work in progress, right?) but one I want to touch on today is stressing less. Or more specifically – stressing smarter. This kind of covers [...]

  • Let’s Get Real

    Fresh on the heels of my post preaching the importance of staring the week with a positive attitude, I’m finding myself in a bit of a funk today. My stomach is in knots and I’m feeling a little off. Normally, I would just recognize it and quietly wait for it to pass but this morning [...]

  • Friday Already?

    { 0 comments }

    How is it already Friday afternoon? This week has flown by – busy, busy, busy! We’ve been working like crazy on the house trying to get unpacked and establish a small degree of order before our friends Cristen and Graham arrived Friday. We planned this visit months ago and it just happened to end up [...]

  • A Mid-Move Update

    ***RSS Readers - Sorry Wordpress went down midway through posting this. Sorry if the post did not show correctly in your reader. I'm so sorry I have been MIA the last couple days but my life has looked a little something like this. With just a little drama (nothing too terrible) we closed on our [...]

  • Moving Stress

    This post is going to be super quick. There is way too much going on right now! Today was the weirdest day I've had in a long time. All day I was forgetting things and mixing things up. I'm hoping I can blame it on stress. I started the day at Y2 for a hot [...]
