I've got nothing today... nothing. I'm grasping at the wind, trying to alter my skewed lens and find gratitude in my heart.

Tonight was probably the worst I've had with my daughter--out and out fight over eating her dinner. Her persistent disobedience astounded me; I knew I had to put her to bed. I think someone needs to tell me to go to bed too. The last week and a half has sliced years off my life. I'm beginning to wonder if I'll make it to 40... without having to check myself in.

I suppose I should laugh; after all, it can't last like this forever. Right? ....Right???

So, tonight I'm going to encourage you to do what I'm going to do.

It's super spiritual.
It's healing.
It's productive.

Okay... no, it's not at all.

But, it's sometimes okay for your break not to be that. You know?

Here's what I'm going to do.
I'm going to sit down and watch an episode of Numbers.

That's it.
That's my inspirational "moment of peace" for you.

:) Relax...


  1. Aw, Kristin. I wish I had some glimmer of peace to hand to you right now. And, NO, it WON'T be like this forever...

    (someday she'll be a teenager. Oh, wait, I'm trying to be helpful here.) Oops.

    Well, deep breathing is not only for childbirth, this I know!

  2. :) Thanks, Amy--so true.
    Btw, we missed you at Book Club.

  3. you know what this post says to me: FREEDOM. proud of you for watching some mindless tv. and i mean it. it's not always the answer, but sometimes, it is just what the doctor ordered. you go girl! and i promise you WILL make it to 40.

  4. Thanks, Carissa. Yes, I'm learning to walk in more freedom. Now, the guilt that tickles my mind while I am walking is another battle, but one thing at a time. :)
