Note to Self

July 24, 2009
  • Breathe in.
  • Breathe out.
  • You might be stressing out if The Husband instructs you to lay down based on a quick phone call.
  • Figure out how you can go almost a whole week feeling excited and incredibly happy and then in a matter of minutes become completely overwhelmed by anxiety and nerves.
  • Maybe take a cue from the dog.  Look at her — sprawled out on the couch, twitching in her sleep with her tongue sticking out.  You could do that.  Minus the tongue.  And the fur.  And that strange yipping noise she’s making…
  • Or maybe you should take a cue from your daughters and grab a coloring book and some Crayolas.  They always seem very content when they’re coloring. 
  • Or maybe even take a cue from John Cusack’s character in America’s Sweethearts.  Be grateful.  I’m grateful for the earth… I’m grateful for the stars and the sky…
  • Wait, no.  You are grateful for this apartment that has been more than just a place to live, it’s been a home, for three years.
  • You are grateful for the house you are about to make your home.
  • You are grateful for the MANY people who have made and are continuing to make this transition smooth.
  • You are grateful that God has been so extremely patient with you!
  • Breathe in.
  • Breathe out.
  • Take a nap.
