Have you ever had one of those melt-down days? I had one yesterday. I decided I need to get out of the house, alone. Working from home is great but there are days when you feel like such a hermit! When Lovie got home with Brockstar, I took off for WalMart. I didn't have a lot of stuff to purchase, but a few necessities...diapers, dog food, and sippy cups.

On the drive home, my brain was in turbo mode and wouldn't slow down. Tears started coming out of my eyes, just running down my cheeks. I hate that. I decided to take the long way home while I sorted through my thoughts to see if I could figure out what was going on with me.

My final conclusion was that I was stressed out. I think that because, in general, life is good for my little clan, I expect that I shouldn't be stressed but that is a really unrealistic expectation. It doesn't work that way. I have a business trip coming where I am presenting some new ideas. Not a big deal, but as I learn more about who will be at the meeting, my blood pressure goes up a little. This is a "big wig" meeting...worse, a face-to-face big wig meeting. I have grown accustomed to working in pajamas and doing all work-related stuff over the phone. It's time to step out of my comfort zone. sigh.

By the way, I made the most awesome crockpot meal yesterday. Curry Chicken with Sweet Potatoes. It was a hit! I fed our family and the neighbors and there were no leftovers. Even the pickiest eater ate it. I found the recipe on another blog. Try it out.

Maybe you should treat yourself to a little shopping trip to look good for the 'big wigs!' :) Nothing like retail therapy!
