Ohhhh I soooo needed time away to find a little peace. My head has been pounding, my senses on overload and my stress level over the top. I really believe too much tv and news has done this to me in great part. Work is the other part that attributes to my anxiety and stress. Every where you turn, it seems like our financial world is going to you know where in a hand basket. And you are reminded of it. And reminded of it. It' s almost as if all the doomsday talk has manifested itself by word of mouth. Of course it's more complicated than that, but when all you here is negative, negative, negative....it becomes reality. I needed some peace and time away from it all.
Away we went. We rented a little cabin in a not so secluded place but just far enough off the path that it seemed as if we were out in the wild wilderness. Okay, so maybe the paved roads gave it away but who's being critical here. It was nice and quiet and full of laughs and good times.
Surround yourself by loved ones and it all becomes so much more clear. You need to have bonding time with those closest to you, after all...without friends and family, you really have very little in life.
Ohhhh those silly boys who are growing so fast and furious, they are becoming mini men before our eyes. **my two are in the center, Zack and Josh***
Caught in the act of marshmallow sacrifices. Good times that will be remembered by all.
And back to reality tomorrow, but a back a bit more refreshed and relaxed. Talk to me again on Friday and we will see if the feeling stays...lol. Perhaps I should limit how much I read and how much news I intake. While I don't want to be ignorant of what' s going on in the world, I don't want it to kill me either.
That's what really matters.
We visited Carowinds this weekend for their Haunted Halloween themepark. What a hoot. Scared so bad I about tinkeled in parts. LOL It stinks getting old. Bladders aren't what they used to be especially when you have bloody vampires chasing you with a chains saw. All in a days fun. I even rode 4 or 5 rollercoasters. sighhhhh. Fun yes. Scary oh hell ya. I'm a chicken you know what. But I did it. For awhile, then took a few breaks--no you go ahead, I'll wait. Ya right, I was too scared..lol
After (okay so I should have put the before first--who am I to follow the natural order of the world?)
Take time out this week to escape from the choas and enjoy what really matters.
