do the best at this moment

doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment. - oprah winfrey

i'm posting to hopefully psych myself up, in a positive direction, about my week ahead. Â i think it's those little unanticipated things that squeeze into my week that push me to that stressful edge. it's...

the hearing aid that is not functioning properly and requires a last minute audiology appointment that happens to interfere with my picking up skyler from school.

that make up gymnastics class and sky's evaluation, which of course are on different days, making gymnastics every day this week.

the creation of a book with kiele, for her english class, that has to be bound and turned in on friday (and she's just as much of a perfectionist as i).

and i had the nerve to sign up for a military spouse's club get-together one evening this week. Â am i kidding myself? Â there is no way in hell i'm going to be making that.

it's these things, that when added to the everyday things that make me stress. so while my stomach is sick and my mind is in a fury trying to figure out how i'm going to get everything done, i will try and heed oprah's advice and do my best at this moment because really, that's all i can do. that and...take a deep breath and chill because in the end, i know i'll get it all done and be just fine. :-)
