hey there.

IMG_0343 .
ok guys, it's been a little while. i have been so busy and just haven't had a bit motivation or thoughts or feelings of wanting to write or share here. i've been in a blogging void, really. which is nice and necessary but this morning as i was culling through some emails and thinking over some blogging opportunities i realized i may as well touch base here before my blog just falls off the face of the earth!
.
i'm starting to build up my infamous personal wall of stress. it's ridiculous really but i see those little bricks stacking up before my eyes and realizing that i need to take a minute and start to deal with all these little things that hindering me from getting things done. i'm much better at ignoring the situation at hand than i am at diving in and dealing with it. school, work, my kids, money ... even little things that are on my to-do list like sending a birthday card to my grandpa: all these areas are starting to just tumble into a pile of stress and i feel overwhelmed.
.
this morning though, i'm off work and SO thankful. tuesdays and thursdays are the days that i usually work at 9 am and don't get home until 9 pm after school. so today i am just sitting here, so stinking happy to not be working and hoping to get a few things done and get back on track for myself. we'll see though; it sounds like an easier said than done situation!
.
maybe i'll be back soon to share more. i haven't picked up my camera much lately besides for a project that i did for a class, which is what the above photo is from! it ended up being pretty neat to think outside of my box and photograph in way that isn't my go-to. i've been painting and drawing and feeling inspired artistically in different ways than usual and it's a good thing i'd say.
.
meanwhile if you have any great stress reliving tips or fabulous words of motivation ... i'm all ears. :)

  1. activity (specifically running) usually seems to do the trick for me. something about the physical act of forward movement gets my mind and motivation thinking ahead too. you've got your plate full and have still managed to keep your head on straight so kudos. I'd live to see your art, if it's like your photography, than it must be good! ;)

  2. Make a list and add every stupid thing you can think of. Sometimes I immediately lose the list, but even writing it is cathartic. I struggle when those tiny tasks (birthday card!) begin adding up and I know things are slipping through the cracks- lists help. I hope the boys are well and it sounds like school is keeping you inspired! You're doing awesome.
