Dealing With It

As I mentioned my stress level has peaked. It peaked to the point that I got shingles. Oh my goodness - shingles are painful. Did I mention that shingles are PAINFUL?! I believe that I have been given a warning. Shingles are brought on by stress. I have never experienced anything like it! I have stepped back and looked at several things. I have found that my outlook has got to change. I'm not even sure what happened to my outlook. Really!

I used to be this happy go lucky free thinking person. But I'm getting back on that track and laughing more and more every day.

Oh yeah - an 8 year old little boy has taught me how to play chess!

Oh you poor baby! I have not had shingles but my uncle had them a few years back and I remember him being very very sick!

Stress sneaks up quite easily when you are homeschooling. I have finally worked out to cut back and relax a bit. The kids are still learning just as much, we just don't harp on the traditional school room work books as much as we used to. We still hit the books but we spend a lot more of the day doing other things. Much more peaceful!

I hope you are feeling better now? Take it easy!

I am so very sorry that it has taken me so long to get to this point. This point is...where I want to do anything.

You are so right about stress! Stress is such a horrible little thing. Ha Ha - little thing!

I am so much better! I am learning to deal with things each and every day as they come my way. Thank you for hanging in there and not giving up on me!
