There are many situations that are stressful. Many of which are classed as life events that everyone should go through, this doesn’t make it easy or on any way better.
You see, my experience of stress has been plenty as of late. Mainly due to taking on allot of resposibility for this little person I made (he has his fathers attitude). On top of that we are in the middle of moving and planning a wedding. Crazy, right?
So our house has been chaos for what seems like forever. Little money due to deposits and double rent means we can’t just pop down to the local takeaway and eat the stress away. Which sounds like an awesome idea until you have to burn that fat off. Not fun.
Having a baby also means that we can’t just stay in bed all day. Long gone are the bed days or lie ins and to be frank I don’t miss them as much as I thought. Little cheekysaurus is a great distraction when those niggly thoughts and worries appear.
Packing and unpacking is he’ll and whoever does that for a living, I feel bad for you. Like allot. I mean the boxes themselves vary between large and heavy to tiny and light. We have got our bedrooms mostly done which is a godsend but downstairs looks like a building site.
Which brings me to another stress point. We have no kitchen. I don’t mean that figuratively either. Before moving our landlord decided to revamp the house and got all new equipment. The downside? The builder he hired is pretty much taking his time. Which leaves us with a kitchen without a cooker, fridge or drawers. I miss the days where I could cook in my own home and didn’t have to worry about traipsing dust onto my lovely new carpet.
How have I stayed sane during this, I hear you ask? Truthfully, I havent. I’m as crazy as you think I am. Close to pulling my hair out if it weren’t for this lovely invention called daytime tv and chocolate. Cuddles help too.
So if your going through a stressful time right now and feel like the world is going loopy. Best thing to do is breathe, have a day off (turn your phone off and just lay in bed if you can) and play some games. Or maybe go for a walk to the park?
That or eat your weight in chocolate like I’m currently doing. I do not feel guilty whatsoever because I’m sharing with my baby and he loves his buttons!
