Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



So last week was a really shitty week, not only because I got such little reading done but also with life.  The office has been extremely busy and super stressful lately and that is starting to wear on me. Also we have had on going construction projects at home that my husband rushed into and was poorly planned so has taken up way more time, money and effort than it should have (which has left me trying to help him and still trying to stay on top of the house and everything scheduled already). Munchkin has also been extremely difficult lately, he has hit the three year old stage and it is awful.  We butt heads non-stop and every thing is a battle that ends up with screaming and tears (for both of us), it has sent me scrambling to the internet and books trying to find a way to make our lives a little less awful.

So with all of this going on, it made me want to skip ahead to next year in hopes of better days. So I have already been setting up my reading goals, challenges and resolutions for the 2016. I also ordered my first Erin Condren life planner! I am excited to try to get all my lists and calendars onto one planner and hopefully reduce at least some of this stress.  I have also picked up an adult coloring book for use at the office, hopefully a few moments a day will help bring this tension level down (especially right before I have to go get Munchkin from Preschool).
