18. Slow down.
19. Be kind.
20. Get organized.
21. Quiet time.
22. It's okay to say NO!
Sounds easy, right? NOT! But it reminded me of WHY I'm so STRESSED, since I'm not doing nearly all the above! Which leads me to what's STRESSING me now! I went for a haircut and color last night....yes I left my sick child at home...with his Dad. And I beat myself up for it all the way to and from. BTW he is some better today, thanks for your prayers! Anyway, when I got home my hubby who never notices little details, proclaimed..."you've got a hickey:)" lol!!!!!!! Go ahead....gasp.....and laugh....and breathe! No, it was not from mad passionate love...like who has time and feels like it....do I hear an Amen from my sisters?...my hairdresser shaved my neck. She is a great hairdresser, it's just that I have sensitive skin. I looked in the mirror and yes....IT LOOKS LIKE I HAVE A HICKEY! Hubby is walking around all proud like and aggravating the hound out of me:) So, now consider yourself family, since I've shared all that. Really people.......it is from a haircut! I guess that's what I get for going. Hopefully by the time I venture out again, oh let's say next month, IT will be gone! Does anybody have a quick remedy for Hickeys? Besides wearing a turtleneck:) Please do tell!!
