Let down your hair

I feel like I need to let my hair down and just relax a little. I've been so super stressed out lately...and sometimes I wonder if it's that I just don't have the coping skills to deal with every day life, or if maybe it's that my every day life really is stressful. These last few weeks I've been particularly busy dealing with my church calling (i.e. visiting with sisters in our ward, planning a special breakfast for the Young Women coming to Relief Society, planning our upcoming activity this month and so on), I've been kind of busy with the girls and making sure they are in all the places they need to be (preschool, naps, baths, potty breaks, meals etc), I've been kind of busy with Ben working so much (i.e. last week we didn't see him at all...unless you count the time I spend in bed sleeping, because he eventually made it there), we've been busy buying a new vehicle (hello minivan), and we've been the MOST busy showing our other house, renting the other house, and getting our other house ready for our renters. Seriously, that was a LOT of work.

This is good news...and maybe this will be a huge stress reliever (because in case you were wondering, we've been paying 2 mortgages for three months. And in case you were wondering, it's not fun at all). Anyway, it's been the kind of month where I think I might just develop an ulcer, or the kind of month where I literally forgot to eat all day long, or the kind of month where I realize I haven't showered in DAYS.

So here's to a new month, one where our financial burden is less, one where I am driving my kids around in a nice roomy mini van, one where we might see Ben more often and one where I might actually get some laundry done, and shower, and make dinner and clean my house! Good things will come our way!

So...speaking of letting your hair down, this one sure knows how to:

I was cleaning the bathroom today and could faintly hear "Rapunzel Rapunzel let down your hair" So I snuck into the room and found my very own Rapunzel letting her 'hair' down. So sweet.

Also, while we're talking about hair, this one sometimes makes me want to pull my hair out:
Or at least give me some more grey hair with all the climbing and getting into stuff she does around here. She's kinda adorable though hey? We'll definitely keep her:)

Boy do I ever know how you feel!! All I ever do on my blog these days is complain about how stressed out I am. Your life does sound insanely busy and it sounds like you can handle it. I almost snapped but instead I made my husband take three days off work and came to Banff for a few days with the kids. You should try it, I feel much better. :)
