The Muppets

This is really a post about a wonderful man (despite what the title says).

I've been feeling rather low, stressed and burnt out this past week - or maybe two or three weeks now.  I lost count. 

Christmas always stresses me out because the cut off date for shipping is around Logan's birthday.  This means I have to have everything sewn, baked, packaged and sent before I get any peace.

To top that off, we're planning a bowling birthday party for Logan.  My anxiety is at the max.  I know that I can handle the planning, the organizing and all that.  I can even handle the kids that show up.  What I can't handle are the parents and the inevitable socializing and small talk that will have to be made.  My social anxiety anticipation meter is at ... well... explode levels!

So I want to thank the most wonderful man in the world for sensing my incapacity to do anything when I get anxious.  Terry took the day off yesterday and we took the kids to see The Muppets.

Lane was so happy! She was pointing and clapping and singing the entire time.  The Muppets are all she can talk about today.

Logan enjoyed the movie as well.  He said that he especially loved the singing man (Jason Segel).

And I got some much needed relaxation.  I stopped worrying about everything for a little while and just had a good time with my family.

Thank you Terry for knowing me.

Thank you for putting up with me.

Thank you for knowing exactly what to do.

I love you beyond words.

Today the anxiety grows... but there are things that are helping me cope.

I am waaay behind on my reading and just saw this today. I'm glad you got to get away for a little while and watch an awesome movie (I LOVE the Muppets!). I'm glad the kiddos enjoyed themselves too. Sending you a late hug and hope that things are better!
