funky fresh.

I'm snapping out of my funk.

The hubs & I had a talk.
The 'rents & I had a talk.
My sissy & I had a talk.
My friends & I had a talk.

The friends & I also drank a lot of wine.

I'm sure it was the wine that helped the most.

At any rate, today is a new day.
This week is a new week.

I get absolutely nothing accomplished when I worry about things that I may or may not have any control over. So, this week I've decided to relinquish control to the one constant in my life -- God. I like to think of Him as my personal assistant of sorts. He keeps me straight & I will let Him figure things out for me.

In the meantime, while He is busy seeing things through, I've been trying to keep myself busy:
  • I made a date with the washing machine - boring, I know, but so necessary.
  • I napped.
  • I drank some of this (Barefoot's Cabernet Sauvignon):
  • I painted my toes this (OPI's Big Apple Red):
  • I went to lunch with a friend.
  • I drank my fair share of pumpkin spice lattes.

And, the plan is to stay busy:

  • I get to see my sister, brother-in-law & their dog, Moxie, this weekend.
  • I'm looking forward to a Peking duck dinner on Saturday night.
  • I plan on painting my bathroom...finally!
  • I am looking forward to getting crafty & welcoming the fall season.

It's very hard for me to give up control. Very hard. But, I'm learning how. I'm not a 'go with the flow' kind of girl. I don't think I will ever be. However, I'm certainly going to make a more conscious effort to be less demanding, less controlling and not so hard on myself.

You go girl!! I too have control freak tendencies and it is hard to just live... but whatever will be, will be.
