taking a break...perhaps a long one.

i've been sick a lot lately and sadly it's not looking like i'll be better anytime soon. the doc suggested reducing my stress. however that's suppose to happen? so between beinig a mother, putting our house up for sale, finishing the semester with 14 credits, fullfilling church callings and still finding time to spend with my family i've decided to let the creative side of me take a break. so no more sewing all the ideas that linger in my mind, no more recipe searching or food network watching, no more savy grocery shopping, no more room redecorating (all though i still haven't showed you the last three i've done and the one i have to finish....maybe!) and no more thrift store shopping. and you may be asking how can you reduce stress by taking out everything fun? well, for now anyway, every spare moment is spent resting. {sleeping} and so far my body is liking that better than anything i could ever bake. so, months from now when i decide to be domestic again....i'll let you know! untill then, may God bless you and your crafts!

Marci...I am worried about you!!! PLEASE PLEASE let me know if there is anything I can do for you! I can watch Bowen for you (I'm sure Jack would love a little buddy), I can clean or cook (okay, TRY to cook) or anything. I hope you are okay :(

Marci! Try yoga!!! I went last week to the rec center for the first time. They turn off the lights and turn on that crazy yoga music. It was different, kinda weird, but SO nice!

I had to do the same thing when I started school full time...give up all of the 'fun' things in my life. It is only a short term loss of fun, for a long term gain of knowledge.
Good luck!! Don't be to sad, you will feel better soon and it will be worth it.
Hang in there girl!!
