My "fake it until you feel it" approach yesterday was successful. I felt angst ridden and sad in the morning, but forced myself to smile and be active. By mid afternoon my fake smile became real, and I was laughing and giggling with Timmy. We had a great day playing and jumping at the trampoline park. I guess all I really needed was to escape with my kids.
With Scott traveling and my juggling a lot of projects, this has been a stressful week. I'm looking forward to unwinding over the weekend, decompressing. Looking around me right now, it is obvious that I should invest significant time decluttering the house.
I always feel better when things are put away and the place looks tidy. Right now it looks like a tornado went through the Island of Sodor in the middle of my living room. Trains, tracks, figures and assorted plastic animals have transformed my living room into a minefield of sharp plastic. I know that someday I will miss the trains, but today is not that day!
