A LONG Week

Ever have one of THOSE days? THOSE Weeks? I sure did last week. I had a number of personal and professional disappointments. Maybe it was the full moon, work stress, maybe PMS (as my loving hubby blames all bad moods on!), or maybe just exhaustion. Most likely it was a combination of those things and more. Running a business is exhausting and makes me crazy sometimes.

Here's what I felt like:

What I ate for dinner one night:

(What, it's peanuts, right? That counts for something)

I need to relax and let things go. I just need to remind myself of my favorite quote from St. Catherine of Sienna, a wise and holy woman..."Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire." Learning to let go and believe is always the hardest thing to do when you're a control freak like me.

Like most things, the week passed. That's not to say my stress level is any less - it's probably more (AHHH...Christmas is almost here!) - but I'll just take it one day at a time. As one door closes, another one opens. Although last week was stressful and seemed to be full of disappointments, this one is starting our pretty good with lots of new opportunities!

AND - don't forget to stop by to see me this weekend (Nov 6-8) for our DEAR Hunter Widow's Weekend. I'll have fresh Cranberry Punch and samples of all of our new holiday creations. Hope to see you soon.
