Genius: Asking for a whole bunch of help. With David being so sick and my work routine thrown off, I’ve relied heavily on my parents and in-laws for picking up the kids and babysitting to get things done.

Fail: Losing my cool in front of Meredith. Last weekend I reached my breaking point, but at least instead of lashing out in anger I just broke down and cried instead. It kind of marked a turning point within me, though, and after some time alone and prayer, things improved.

    From Sarah @ Beauty School Dropout:

    Ooh – church craft night sounds fun! I am really itching to get back into a knitting/craft group, but I’m not sure where to find one. Maybe I need to start one at church!

    I can completely relate with losing it with a three year old. I have some parenting moments that I am not proud of! Three is a REALLY tough age for everyone involved. It really does get better at 4.

    From Kathleen:

    You definitely should! That’s what one of the ladies did at our church (which is pretty small). She just has everyone over one Friday night each month and each person brings their own crafts and a snack. She also has supplies to make cards for church members in case someone doesn’t have a craft to bring. Usually only a few people come but that’s fine. It’s an easy setup!

    From Melissa:

    I hope you get to go to craft night! Sounds like you need some You Time. I’m also sorry to hear that David’s still sick, but so glad you have help. It really does take a village to raise a family. Hope he feels better soon, not just for health sake but also so you’ll get your partner back!

    So intrigued by your creative biz plans/dreams… I have the same dream in my back pocket. I know it’s an “excuse” but it’s hard to carve out time to even think about developing that dream.

    From Nora:

    Good luck on the 10k tomorrow! Will be cheering you on virtually. I hope David feels better very soon and am very glad that your family has been there to help. Invaluable, I’m sure.

    Too bad we don’t live closer as I’ve been wishing for a mani/pedi, too. We could make a date to make it happen!

    From Amanda:

    Good luck on your 10k! That’s fun. I haven’t run a race since the spring, and I am DYING to do one. I have a Tough Mudder next weekend, so that should be fun! Although I’m super nervous too. It’s 12 miles and might kill me. Also, what do you think about that book?

  6. 6

    From Kathleen:

    I’ve heard of the Tough Mudder and it sounds intense! Also kind of fun though? I hope you write a recap, I’d love to read about it!

    Just finished the book and I really liked it! Excellent writing.

    From Holly:

    Good luck on your 10k! I can’t imagine running that far, I barely survived my 5k! I totally lost it on Topher today … he has days where he just refuses to listen to anything I say, and I get so frustrated with him! I snapped at him a few times … I felt like such a horrible mom!

    From jenna @ dearest love:

    Ohhh, I’m intrigued by these creative business plans! Do tell! I’m also starting to think about gift ideas. I’m trying not to wait until Christmas!

    Thanks so much for linking up with us!
