From the Road.

Have I told you how much I love Hampton Inns? For the price of a Holiday Inn, you get so much more. And nice big fluffly beds and duvets. mmmmm duuuuveeeeettts.

I apologize if the post yesterday sounded so serious that some of you are thinking that I need help. My mom read the post and within seconds was on the phone, calling me to see if I was okay. I feel bad about that. She thought that, perhaps, I was trying to be funny. In no way, shape, or form was that meant to be funny. It was meant to be the dead truth, but it wasn't meant to cause alarm. These episodes don't happen often, just more often when I'm stressed. Stressed? Am I stressed? Why would I have reason to be stressed?

1) We are traveling in the winter time for Thanksgiving, NORTH to Idaho.
2) My husband is coming home. To live with us. non-stop. For 2 years. No matter how much I love him, and how much I am waiting for that day, there is stress involved with that. I haven't lived with him for more than a few weeks for a years.
3) We are getting ready to move half way across the country.
4) We are going to be traveling with a fifth wheel, in the WINTER for about 2000 miles.
5) My husband is going to be pulling a fifth wheel.
6) We are moving.

Yeah, stress? that's not even all of it. So yeah.. and to top it off, we drove in the snow last night through part of Wyoming. That was fun... NOT.

You definately have lots to be stressed about. Just try to take deep breaths and know that each day is a new day. Things WILL work out and you will be fine! One day at a time, honey!!!

hahahaha i love ron's comment. i'm so in the same boat with stress so i know what you mean. i took the board exam and since that is over i should be ok, right? no. i had about half a panic attack in the exam and got myself sick over it...and i can't get my stomach to return to normal three days later. i can only eat very small meals because i will get that stress sick feeling all over again. i figured i'd be fine once arriving in australia but i think the stress from the exam and leaving the country is still in my system. i think a round of massages is needed, don't you? oh and josh and i are officially on catch up time, having spent more time apart in the relationship than together. it's weird, isn't it?
