Just Wishin...

What am I wishing for you ask? For today to be over with. Usually I don't wish time away, aside from that last month of pregnancy each time around, but I wish I could go to bed and wake up to Thursday or Friday. Tonight is YW in Excellence night and being the YW Pres. means I don't get to get out of speaking, even with pink eye. I know I should suck it up, I can hear Brett telling me to get over it in my head, and yet the evening looms over me. I passed off conducting on one of the laurels who enjoys talking, and I even wrote out what I'll say, but I get in a panic in front of a group and I'm just a sweaty ball of nerves who mumbles, speaks too quickly, and reads verbatim off the page instead of using appropriate pauses and making eye contact with anyone in the room.

So what do I do when I have a monkey on my back that I don't want to think about? I bake. I'm off to the kitchen right now. What do you do when you're stressed out???

Good luck with that. When I am stressed I talk on the phone, clean, watch TV, or do anything to take my mind off of the stress.

I wish that I liked to bake. Instead I redecorate my house. Yeah, it is an expensive stress reliever. With the whole economy in trouble and Travis' bank being taken over by a new bank, I have redecorated nearly my entire house. I am thinking about retiling my hall bathroom...

I bake, too. In fact, I just found an awesome recipe for those super tasty molten lava cakes...maybe I'll email it to you.

And I feel your pain. We had our Activity Days Mother/Daughter activity on Saturday. And I was having contractions...
