Baby steps?

well, i didn’t accomplish as much yesterday as i hoped.  it has been a challenging few weeks with the kidlets.  i was hoping to get a chance to visit with our behavior therapist and get some suggestions for how to handle challenging behaviors.

i let myself imagine that she would come, it would all be resolved and life would be a little easier.  so when she called in sick, it felt like a punch to the gut.

so i didn’t get any suggestions, i didn’t get a break and i did some wallowing in my misery.

but, i also did my radio show.  which i consider one of my few outlets for creativity and me-ness.  since it was the 41st anniversary of the release of the queen song “bohemian rhapsody,” i focused on the year 1975 and found some great songs from that year.

and i made my own granola!  it came out strangely chewy (rather than crunchy, maybe i need to cook it longer?) but it is full of healthy stuff and it tastes awesome.

so i didn’t get around to working in my art journal, or starting that crochet project i had been eyeing.  but i didn’t raise my voice to the kids, and i was the only one that did any crying.  i will take that as a victory and move right on.

baby steps right?  did you accomplish anything great?

  1. I had a challenging day yesterday, too (yeah, maybe a little crying as well.) 🙂 My great accomplishment was getting through it half-way sane. It’s a much better day today. Wishing you one as well!

    Baby steps is better than no steps and probably the best way to remain productive *virtual hug*
