The All About Me Challenges are back!!! Head over to the Designer Digitals blog for all the details. Smile


Journaling: This picture captures my life perfectly at this moment. I was trying to shovel the driveway, get the dog in, and take a picture of the snow piles because they were way over my head. You can see just a corner of the mailbox over my hat and see that thereís nothing but snow over my head.
But I was trying to do too many things at once and this is the picture I got. Going too fast, worrying about too many things, and something didnít work out. Itís a great reminder that we will all adjust to me going
back to work if I just stay steady, breathe, and take some time for myself. Writing it all down is always a huge help so here are my thoughts and reminders to myself.


At this moment:


I am...wondering how Iíll get it all done and
still be the parent that I want to be.
I love...my husband so very much for always
trying to help even when he canít.
I feel...so much responsibility towards ensuring that my kids feel loved and valued.
I see...their stress as we all adjust to me
going back to work after being home for five years.
I hear...my gut telling me that weíll all be fine as long as I stay steady and remember that they all follow my lead.
Iím looking forward to...finding the balance
that I know is out there.
I dread...the day when theyíve left the house and I no longer have these worries.
I am scared of...missing parts of their lives and letting them down.
I am okay when...I remember to take deep breaths, give them all hugs, and let the other stuff go.
