Phew

This hectic day deserves a jaunty point form post.

The holiday season has hit my place of work:
- window displays need displaying
- lights & greenery need untangling
- stock needs making, preparing & wrapping
- labels need cutting & affixing

When work & the 3rd trimester collide:
- I just barely fit through parts of the front window display
- my balance is shot these days
- my blood pressure is so low that I often need "sitting breaks" and my boss fears that I will faint at any moment
- all of that fun pregnancy mucous means that though my cold is subsiding, my nasal fluids are not
- I'm completely exhausted & it's a shameful 8pm

Things to remember:
- we move in 17 days (oh my)
- we must pack up & de-clutter (merci, to the boy who starting packing today)
- our prenatal classes begin next week
- posting everyday for NaBloPoMo
- tea dates with friends to stay in the calm
- move slowly & thoughtfully so I don't faint

Alright. My brain is feeling a little less frantic now that I've got that all out. Sometimes it's good to write (or type) out all the of the little things that are on your mind. It helps put all of those ideas, which can seem so difficult or crowded, into perspective. If you're a visual learned like myself, it can be helpful to see the contents of your mind on a piece of paper (or on the screen) before you. I find it to be cathartic & a fabulous stress reliever.

What do you do when your brains feel all muddled? Hmm, perhaps a nice warm bath with some epsom salts would help -- along with some peppermint tea before bed.

Ha. Yes, I'm thinking about bed this early. Guten nacht friends, sleep tight.

I make lists too when I'm lacking focus (which happens all the bloody time thanks to ADD) but I had to learn to do that. My natural tendency is to look for things to do which engage my body, like cleaning and yoga and bicycling, so I can just let thoughts be thoughts.

I'm a list-maker too - words are like anchors to me.
Feel better and take care - lots of hot drinks and snuggling is in order :)

Lists are the best... I am an avid lister (on whatever I can find; train tickets, bills, other people's "important documents" you name it) and all my lists turn into doodles.. Ah. Thinking you today xx
