Hey guys, and happy weekend to you! Just a little update post tonight before we head out to go CURLING with a group of friends (it’s a great workout, lots of fun, and easy to be competitive at because, well, no one’s good at it!). 😉 Should be fun. But this fun comes after a stressful week that’s been full of transitions. Allow me to elaborate:
- This past week, we worked our normal jobs (Mikey from home, me from other people’s homes!),
- Packed up our house,
- Eaten the food remains in the house,
- Cleaned, scrubbed, vacuumed, and swabbed said newly packed up house,
- Taken 3 loads of gear to our 10″x5″ storage spot:
- Moved into Mikey’s parents’ basement (again ;)),
- Promoted our upcoming Shave for the Brave fundraiser at South Centre Mall on March 12th, taking shift turns while the other packed and/or cleaned and/or shuffled furniture to our future home.
Whew! It’s been a long week. We’ve both been busy, distracted (Mikey), and a bit emotional with all the changes coming up so fast and furious (me)…communication hasn’t been easy and our meals haven’t been the most nutritious (case in point):
- Green smoothie (kale!) (for her)
- So those are the updates from now. One transition to the next. We’re thrilled for the film tour and all that’s to come but are trying to stay focused in the present for the next few weeks. So my question to you before we get our CURL on is this: How do you stay focused during transitions, in times of change, and when you’re busy? I’d love to hear what helps you out and who or what you turn to when life gets crazy to keep you grounded and focused! For me, it’s generally praying about all that’s happening with my husband, talking to others’ I respect for wisdom (parents on both sides, good friends), asking for help and reading inspiring posts like this one! And I can’t help but notice two other things that really make a difference in how my days pass when I’m stressed: more time spent reading God’s Word and running! So maybe that’s what I should do tomorrow. 😉
- More on workouts, *good* food, and life later. For now, live well, be well, and enjoy the end of your weekend!
