Well, paint me pink and call me overwhelmed!

Do you ever have those moments where everything that's going on in your life just slaps you in the face and leaves you feelin' frazzled and overwhelmed?

Be honest, baby.

Yep, I thought so!

Well, for whatever reason, I've been going through that this past weekend. All I see around me is a house in upheaval, what with all the house repairs/remodeling still going on, my brother temporarily moving in, the usual funny business that goes along with two younguns and a hubby and.........*sigh* I think you get the idea.

So here's my query: What gets you through the frazzled and overwhelming moments in your life?

Prayer? Music? Exercise? Beating a defenseless piece of wood into splinters with a hammer?

From the simple to the silly, I'd love to hear your methods of relieving stress!

Unless it's illegal.

Peace, y'all!

Writing in my journal, photography, sketching and editing photos on Picnik. E-mail me and tell me why, oh why, is your brother moving in with you temporarily!?

Well dang. Guess I have to cross off a couple on the list. Just kidding!

Journal, music, anything that makes me laugh. I feel more alive after I've dinked around with something creative. I was thinking of getting a paint by numbers just for the heck of it.

I always say that I'm an introvert masquerading as an extrovert--and when loads of humanity is stomping through the house and I begin to feel that little tickle of overwhelm, I find a pocket of 'time-out' is what I need--a long run, a session at Panera with my Bible, a good book with a great story line--yeah, it may be a bit of avoidance but I do come back refreshed!
