So in the last few weeks I’ve come up with a list of needs….weird they weren’t things I needed a month ago and my life situation really hasn’t changed….so why all the sudden do I need these things? Turns out I’m a stress shopper…and I can justify things pretty easily.
This round was bags and thankfully I only bought on and it was with the hubbys blessing. I’m not sure I really talked myself out of the other bag I was going to buy though, more like I got lucky. I delayed long enough looking for a deal that my friend finally said “don’t buy it that was going to be my gift for baby #2.”
I did however make an impulse buy of a new baby carrier that was on SUPER sale…I love the design I have been looking at it for a while but I’ve never purchased it because it is basically a slightly different version of our Ergo. Oops! Well when it gets here hubby and I will check it out see if it will get used and if not I got such a good deal I should be able to sell it at a small profit so it will work out.
Blah blab blah, the point is why is my stress ‘reliever’ something that will just cause more stress ($$/adding to clutter?) I’m not sure it always is my outlet, I think when I’m able running is most of the time but right now that’s no longer an option.
For now I’m not going to beat myself up, I recognize it and hopefully next time I can catch it sooner. I didn’t blow the budget and I didn’t buy anything outrageous so it will all work out.
Do you have a stress relieving habit that just causes more stress?
So I’m not sure what to write about these days, I’m not really doing anything new and super green…in fact I’ve probably slacked in that area. I’m not super active or training for a race. Right now I’m just focsing on keeping it all together.
My entire life right now is Apple, Work, Apple, Clean, Apple, Photo Editing, Bed. You see Mac is working an evening shift these days and that puts me on full time Apple duty, if I’m home I have her. Having Apple isn’t a problem, she is such a good girl. However add that to 33 weeks pregnant, lack of sleep, a few minor medical things (that have nothing to do with the pregnancy but could impact delivery) a lack of running and I’m just barely holding on to my sanity.
I love to keep things happy and such on here, and don’t let this post fool you, over all I’m still a pretty happy lady, just tired, and wondering how I’m going to survive the next 7 weeks. However this blog is also about real life and right now, real life is not ideal.
I am keeping it together though, just barley. We are eating, the house isn’t rotting from lack of cleaning and I’ve yet to show up late to work. Apple knows she is loved and gets plenty of spoiling but I’m drained. Not to be a whiner but there is no me time…none, at a time in my life when I really need it and that is probably hardest of all.
I’m just focusing on today, that is all I really can do right? Eating healthy today, getting to bed on time today, tomorrow will worry about itself.
