Honestly, I really do feel a lot of pressure these days, but I drew this because I wanted to draw me with just a skull for a head. I thought it turned out well.
But about that pressure. We haven’t even finished October yet and I already feel like my head is about to explode. A lot of it is due to Girl Scouts. Both Princess and Pixie are in Girl Scouts now, so last week we had 3 troop events. This week I have two meetings and a training class to go to. Next week we’ll have another troop meeting. And very soon, cookie sales stuff starts up again. We don’t actually start selling cookies until January, but we do start paperwork and training prior to that, and it’s my goal this year to get started before everyone leaves for Christmas break, because once folks are gone, it’s kind of hard to get all their permission slips signed and turned in on time.
So yeah, a little bit of pressure these days. I saw a news piece last week about how more and more women are taking anti-depressants and it really struck a nerve with me. I know why those women are taking meds. I’d like to figure out how I can avoid taking them myself. As I told the Hubster, the problem isn’t how I handle the stress, it’s how much is being piled on me. If I can reduce that load, then I’m good. The question is, how do you reduce that load.
If anyone has any ideas, let me know!
