Don't mess with stress

So I have realized over the last two weeks that my classes at school require a great deal of my time and effort. I am sure those of you who have ever had to read over 100 pages in a text book at a time can understand what I am talking about. I have felt like a crazy person these last two weeks trying to get everything done on top of work, church, family, dishes, laundry, exercise (which usually is the first thing to go these days), pregnant lady naps (CRITICAL to survival), cooking, eating, sleeping, spending time with Chuck...

Those were listed in no particular order... we all know Chuck is much higher on that list:)

I am sure many would say, ya that's just life... busy busy busy. Well I decided I didn't want to live my life without being able to stop and smell the roses when I wanted... Or paint my toenails when they get all chipped, or go on dates, or get to read my new book on hypno-birthing, or be able to go to the doctor without worrying about sitting in the waiting room for too long, or bake stuff... like bread, and muffins, and cookies, and wow I feel really hungry right now, or WRITE IN MY JOURNAL (something that has really fallen behind these days).... Or blog:), or or or take a long shower or curl my hair!!!

So, I am thinking about quitting my job. Just like that. Somethings are just more important. I mean who needs money anyways... I mean I am a pregnant, newly-wed college student, I think by definition I should be broke. I would hate to go against social norms here.

Plus my neighbor who is in very much the same boat as me but with 3 kids and one on the way gave me some really great advice... "Pray for free stuff."

I don't know quite what I am going to say to the boss man... I'll have to pray for words for that conversation while I am praying for prosperity to knock on my door. I shouldn't have any doubts though, God always seems to come through for me... which reminds me I should tell him thanks for a bunch of stuff today.

I feel like crying when I read your list of things to do....I feel overwhelmed with the things I'm involved in and you have more on your plate. I think you are making a good decision..good luck with the talk to your boss.

WOW you are busy! It has been a LONG time since I have been very busy. I mean I am kept busy here all day but I don't feel stressed, I have plenty of free time and things so I don't feel to stressed about getting everything done while still having time for fun stuff.So basically, I cannot relate, but I can validate how dang hard it must be! I would quit my job too. I'm bad at stress!!!! haha. Well my mom got me a book: 50 ways to soothe yourself with out food. So maybe I will become better at stress soon! And not eat the stress anymore!!!!! haha well I miss you tons!! Love ya!!!

You won't regret it! I say savor the days while you can. Our best married days so far have also been our poorest. :)
I loved the card you wrote for Sara! It was so fun to see you and your cute little bitty belly.
