*sigh*

I really feel like I'm being a downer, but not looking for sympathy...just expressing how I feel.

I lost 1.2 pounds at ww today. Although, I'm not really celebrating that as a success....due to stress, anxiety and depression...I haven't been eating well. I'm going to try and do better this week....get back to exercising, lift my spirits a bit.

I've kind of made a decision to stop scrapbooking. This isn't something that's going to happen immediately. I'm going to scrapbook, until I don't have anything to scrapbook with...run out of product sort of. I'll be left with a lot of paper etc. and stuff...I'll probably let the kids use it for crafts, if there is anything worth selling/rakking I will. There's something that I want a little more than books filled with embellishments, sitting on a shelf, unappreciated, never to be looked at. It's like wallpapering my walls with money.

Alex was completely awful today. I had no one to talk to, I couldn't even get a hold of Jamie. I seriously felt like I was going to throw a tantrum. What else was I supposed to do. It was him screaming for 3 hours straight...no consolation.

I have a lot of things to get organized for the summer still, so I need to get on that. Can you imagine a meal plan for the whole summer..all the meals/snacks? 4 crazy kids...you kind of have to. :S I'm just off now to peruse some sites for WW meals to plan this weeks meal plan.

ETA: I will keep on with my JustCre8 kits, as I have a 12 month committment to those! Besides, I already said no shopping for 2009... so I will probably buy little things here and there... until then.

How do you deal with stress?

I'm finally home and am now able to comment on blogs.
1)I agree with you about the topic on your other blog topic. I think people should not judge you based on who you were and/or how you look. Why can't they simply like you for who you are now at the moment and time.

2)I may be getting old but I do remember what it was like for my youngest to cry constantly and my not know what to do or not having anyone to talk to about it. I just want to tell you you can call me anytime or if you need me to call you I will. Just say the word girl. I'm here for you.

3)You deal with stress one day at a time. One minute, one hour at a time. Which ever is easiest for you to deal with. Take a walk, read a book that you enjoy, do anything to channel that stress elsewhere. Another great way to deal with it is to grab a good cup of tea, and write about it or simply sit outside on a quiet day or evening when you can.

I'm sad to hear you are giving up scrapbooking. You are so good at it!!! :o(

I'm sorry you've been down lately. You can always e-mail me to chat. I'm always here for you Aleks! Okay?!

I think it's a great idea that you are starting to plan for meals for the summer. It's always a good idea to plan ahead, especially with meals. Healthy ones at that. :o)

HUGS!!!!!!
