Simple things

This last week has been a celebration of the simple things....

The joy of stopping to take a picture on the way to work...

Baking cookies with K3...

Decorating a tree I didn't pick out...

Finally coloring a friends hair so she can look groovy for the holidays...

Allowing myself time to finish decorating in a day or so instead of stressing because I didn't get everything done in one day...

Today I have someone else's recipe in my crock pot. Dinner will be simple.

I will try not to dwell on:

How many chins I now have...

The size of my behind...

How many cookies I've eaten this week...

How much I've spent on Ben for Christmas...

The fact that I haven't wrapped a single present yet...

The dream I had about cleaning the bathrooms in the mall... (what was that about???)

Everything will come together. I have time this weekend... Barring any unforeseen disasters. (And I suck at the whole foreseeing thing, so any impending disaster would by default be unforeseen.)

I have so many of you to thank for sending good advice on destressing. Keeping things simple is really starting to work for me. What works for you?

AG out!

PS ~ A couple years ago, I wrote a post about a night that changed my life. Last night, out of the blue, the phone rang... and it all came back. I have to find the post (issues with changing blogging platforms!) and then I'll write the update. Stay tuned! It'll blow your mind!
