Stress Management????

Well I have just royally f***ed up my sleep pattern for the evening by falling asleep after work. Now I am totally awake and 5:15am is looming!! My main goal for this particular blog is to get some advice. I have now been working my new job for a little over a month and I AM EXHAUSTED, both mentally and physically!! I am trying to leave work at work so I am not bringing that added stress into my home life. But I am not sure how to do that.
Aside from being too tired to buy groceries or cook dinner, (many many thanks to my lovely husband for keeping us watered and fed!!) I have also fully neglected my jewelry. I am starting to feel like I don't even care about it. It is enough for me to feel prepared to make it through a whole day of work! I know I can use some good old fashioned exercise but how do I bring back my creative energy without feeling like I am forcing it?

Any suggestions for staying balanced that you use in your own life?

No time!!!

Dear Blog,

I miss you. I miss the days of pondering what to write. Now I have little time to chat. Please forgive I will be back soon. Between work and the Walden Market this weekend I am swamped. But I love and miss and will talk soon!!! If you are in the Nashville area this weekend join us!!

I have been back to work for two full weeks. Other than having absolutely no time for anything else in my life due to complete and total fatigue it has been okay. There has been only one full-on breakdown. I tried so hard to wait until the end of the day to lose it but instead I burst into tears in front of two of my co-workers and found myself sitting on the bathroom floor. What can I say? It is a real job and I am getting paid pretty good money. I think, therefore, you have to take the good with the bad.

I hate that I haven't felt inspired to make anything new lately but I am sure I will get back into the groove in a couple of weeks. I have to remember why I am doing this! It is for Z and I. The only way we will ever be able to move forward in our lives is to be responsible now. And this is not a time to be out of work. So I spend the weekend preparing for the coming week. At least I know that every two weeks I am that much closer to being debt free!
