Monday Motivation

by - April 25, 2022

Happy Monday, friends. I came across this self-care series on Pinterest, and the slide about stress is what I need in my life right now. I am stressed, y'all. From work to personal life, there is a lot going on right now, and I feel like I'm being pulled in a bunch of different directions.

We are officially putting our house on the market this week, so this past weekend was 'crunch time' for getting things in order. Alexis spent the weekend with grandparents so that made things easier, but Chris had to work both days so that meant the bulk of the cleaning fell to me. However, I was able to get pretty much everything done and even a few things boxed up (Alexis is not happy about all her art supplies, LOL).

Last week was... Well, stressful is about the only word I can come up with to describe it.

On Monday, I took my car to the shop for the bumper to be fixed from where I was rear-ended in February, then had a truly aggravating experience with the rental company. I made the reservation but then couldn't get them to answer the phone for a pick-up, so Chris ended up leaving work and sitting with me at their office for over two hours! At least I know it wasn't just me. When we got there a lady told us about how she'd been calling for an hour and finally had to come up there just to add another day. Then, in what might be the best part of that entire experience, a lady came storming in, threw her keys at them, told them she didn't have time to keep waiting on them to take their car back, and stormed back out. So, whew. A lot of unhappy people dealing with Enterprise.

In terms of work, this past month has been almost a carbon copy of the previous month in that people just are not responding...even for the free services we offer. So it's been frustrating and stressful on that front. We also are officially transitioning to our new photographer, so that's an added level of stress. And one of the editors who works on the trio of magazines based out of Mobile's computer crashed, so I volunteered to help with their layout so they would make deadline. That wasn't really stressful because it's what I actually like to do the most, but it was something I hadn't planned on being part of my schedule so I had to shift stuff around.

Anyway, I feel like this post has turned into a doom and gloom situation. I'm find, really, just got an overflowing plate at the moment. It'll all work itself out in the next week or so, though. I hope.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
