I stamped tonight...just because...and stamped away two days of stress and anxiety...one of the many reasons I love Stampin' Up! and what I do.
Every year, towards the end of summer break, I find myself turning into a crazy stressed out mess. Working 40 hours a week from home with 3 crazy boys running around (with dart guns most days) and a hubby gone 85% of the time tends to wear on me. Today was one of those days where I was on the verge of losing my mind...my youngest was up at 5:15, full of it from the minute he opened his door. As soon as the big boys were up, the arguing and fighting started and I was counting the minutes until it was time for my youngest to take a nap. I had to put MYSELF in time out for a few minutes after lunch...the boys knew at that point that I was D.O.N.E. Their attitude and behavior quickly changed and our afternoon did get better. I wrapped up my work day and decided to take a few minutes to stamp before I started dinner and it was my saving grace! Stamping really is therapeutic!
