Sometimes I don’t think I post anything truly personal here. I think it’s all craftiness and food (but I mean really, that is my entire life after all). But today, as the snow falls for the first time, I wonder how much of myself is really left here on this blog. I also think that I worry about over-sharing and someone reading this and thinking I’m crazy (even though I am.) But today I just feel overwhelmed. Wintertime does the strangest things to me, and I feel at odds with myself. The holidays make me want to spend, spend, spend in a never ending whirl of tinsel and wrapping paper and cookies, and then another part of me doesn’t want to spend a dime. There is some part of me that feels the need to pinch every penny just.in.case. The added stress of the additional cost of registering our new car adds another layer of panic to my already stressed out brain. I have friends and family who expect presents and even with t-minus 24 days and counting to finish them, I have finals next week and I feel like I may just have a break down. On top of that, this is the season of giving. Which means I am constantly reminded that there are people who are worse off than I am, and yet I still feel that panic wavering in my mind. What’s a girl to do? So my plan is this, today I am going to sit down in front of the TV, put a blanket on my lap, and work on my sweater. I won’t think about any of my problems or the fact that everyone expects something from me. I’m just going to watch a fun kids movie and relax. Perhaps that will bring things back into perspective.
