Just breathe, just breathe . . . it will all get done and everything will work out. That's what I told myself last night right after I almost worked myself into a anxiety attack. I don't think I've ever had a real panic or anxiety attack, but I think I came pretty close last night. I have waaaaaayyyy too much on my plate right now (and for the next month and a half) and too many stressful things being thrown at me at once. But I know I will get it all done, and everything will work out (as it always does). I just have to tackle one thing at a time. My mantra for the next month will be "just say no" . . . to any further social engagements, extra scrapbook pages, holiday parties, school volunteer duties, favors etc. That's what I need to do in order to maintain my sanity and also save time for my family, sleep and meals. Breathe in, breathe out.
To lighten this post, here's a Prima layout I made a little while back. The title is "Jeune Fille", which in french means "young girl" (to my French blog readers, please correct me if I'm wrong!).
I know the holidays are a busy time for everyone. Just don't forget to take of yourself! Eat well, get enough sleep, and say "no" if your plate gets too full!! It's okay to say no sometimes. :)
