Rain King, redux

Its Wednesday. The week up until this point has been quite the bust. Storms have been barreling through all week, and the atmosphere has been ripe and heavy.

Its dark and gloomy.
I am swamped at my job.
My hair is continuing to frizz
Rainy weather means I can't walk outside at work.
My house is a little bit disorganized right now.
My prayer life is quite a mess right now.
I need to clean out my guest room by this weekend.
I am just BEAT.
A week from today the little man is having surgery. Its just a tonsillectomy, but its still surgery and my anxiety level is ramping up.
I need to rest and recharge my batteries.
All of this stress is making me gag, much like a cat with a hair ball.

All it takes is a few changes to my routine and plans, and the apple cart is upset. My menu plan for the week was changed, and as a result, I am feeling like I am drowning.
I have had a lot of stiffness and tightness in my hips and lower back, which is scaring me. I don't want to wind up crippled by arthritis. The problem is, it hurts for me to move right now, and the more it hurts. The more it hurts, the less I want to move, and so it goes.
My blog traffic has dropped off significantly. Its making me wonder, am I doing something wrong? Have the last two weeks worth of posts not been good?
I have been told by several people that no one really wants to hear about my kid, all the time. Ouch.

I have omitted what is working right in my life
I have spent time with my family.
We had a picnic
I made an upcycled t shirt bag like this.
I made a yo yo necklace and am writing a tutorial.

the little things that make you smile like a simple picnic make all the stress calm down. Hang in there as I used to tell myself this too shall pass. Prayers for swift and totally recovery for your child from the surgery.

I can relate. The angsty- blues came to visit me. Damn unwelcome guests! But I know it's passing, and soon gone. Assure yourself of this, too.

I hope things look up for you soon in all ways. Hang in there.

I'm the same way when faced with a change in my routine, and the blog traffic usually slows down in the summer. Keep writing what YOU want to write about!

I get thrown off for months with a routine change. I seem to have two modes exercise and clean nonstop and do absolutely nothing both last months. Its terribly unhealthy to be so extreme but I have no balance. I really wish you and your little boy the best =)
