Warp Speed

Wait ... wasn't it just Halloween?

I didn't even get a chance to share my Halloween-decorated house, which wasn't anything extraordinary or anything, but it was cute. Skeletons, spiderwebs, and a Frankenstein mask on my fancy female bust figurine that sits on the entryway table.

I guess we are in that warp-speed zone where fall festivals, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years get all smooshed together, and we just do the best that we can! I'm trying to find that "perfect" balance between cramming in ALL of the special holiday experiences and also just taking the time to SIT with my husband and children, and enjoy.

I've been burning the wick at both ends, and I've got even more going on than this little slice of life that you may see here. Char still is not walking independently (19mo), my closet is an embarrassing disaster zone, we are all in a state of coughing/stuffiness/sore throat, ugh ... tis the season!

So, I'm literally sitting here thinking -- where do we go from here with this post? Do I swing it into a positive way and showcase my favorite oil diffuser, comfy robe, and tell you how much I'm enjoying the book I'm reading now? Talk about slowing down for the holidays, taking time for yourself?

Or do I just give you a virtual fist-bump, let you know that if you're feeling a little sick, a little tired, a little overwhelmed, that you're not in it alone? But that I do think there's so much JOY to be found in this season, and we shouldn't just plod on through it with our warrior boots on? We should actually just let ourselves slow down, lessen our expectations a little bit, and not invite uninvited stress through our front door.

Girrrrrl, you ain't the only one feeling overwhelmed!

Sending hugs.
