WIP Friday

WIP Friday

So Alicia has challenged herself to post everyday in February to ward off the February blues. I figured she might like some company so I committed to doing the same. Amanda is doing something similar by posting a photo everyday next week. I told her I’d join her too — I figure I committed to posting everyday anyway. And speaking of commitments, I’m commiting to try to take a little better care of myself — starting now. I told you about the pink eye but I also started last weekend with a cold and then last night I was up sick in the night. A visit to the doctor today confirmed I have a sinus infection. The doctor told me lots of fluid, lots of rest. I laughed.

Really though, I need to start paying more attention to myself and stressing less about the non-important stuff — like Katie’s valentines for her preschool class. Last year I made all of them to my type-A standard. This year I’m letting go. I mean seriously, they’re three and four year olds, they could care less about the perfectly placed embellishments. What they want is the candy. So Katie is making her own valentines this year — with some direction and over-all plan from me. Folks, this is me trying to let go — a WIP for sure.

    I couldn’t agree more…..don’t stress yourself out over these things. Believe me, I can relate! Those little kiddos will take one look at the Valentine and will probably never look at it again. They are going for the TREATS! Hope your sinus infection goes away soon. Those are no fun at all. Take care of yourself!

    Think of it as an exercise in creative exploration… and an exploration in which disenfectant will clean up after the best. 😀

    I am working on letting go too. It hard sometimes but better for us in the long run. Good luck with your WIP. 🙂
