Monday Musings

The weather is a little overcast for the holiday but that's okay as we just had a mini heat wave with temperatures in the 90's and high humidity so can't complain.

Overall the weekend was quiet.  The man slept through much of it, think the heat wiped him out. Well that and the mens basketball league he plays in at work on Mondays.  At 40 the man isn't used to those highly intense, competitive pick up games.  By week two his groin even suffered a minor injury complete with bruising and he was overall sore.

Saturday I went shopping with my mother. Unexpectedly found some really cute summer shirts at the Gap, better yet in the kids department, on sale for only $8!  That's one of the benefits of being small you can fit in the kids clothing, which helps to save money too.

Sunday was more of a lounge day.  Did a little laundry, played with Cooper outside and also tried on some wedding bands.  Neither the man and I can find what we are truly looking for, at the price we desire.  I'm torn between a simple plain band or a small diamond anniversary band.  The man wasn't in the mood for shopping, or doing much so I browsed myself this time.  At least Cooper and I had some relaxing moments outside enjoying the beautiful weather. 

The man and I had a competitive game of chess later in the evening.  It's so funny how everything with the man has to be so competitive, he reminds me of my sister and brother in law.  I'm just not that competitive, honestly the only thing I ever care about really winning is the lottery!  ;)

Today involved a light cleaning of house basically floors and touching up bathrooms.  Cooper was in need of a bath as well.  Dozed a little in the afternoon as for months now the dizziness hasn't been allowing me quality sleep.  In fact, I'dd say overall my brain and head are not in good shape. 

The intense head pressure is back, combined with dizzy spells and even now headaches at times.  I'm sure all the stress of the past few months hasn't helped at all.  The specialists say stress is one of the worst things and that it can really hinder any progress.  Lately it's hard not to feel frustrated and overwhelmed by it.  The amount it interferes with my life is just unacceptable, it's so frustrating knowing there is no cures or even sure fire medicines to relieve it.  

Meanwhile, on the house search front we made another offer on a house we toured Wednesday evening.  We were the first to look at the house but had to wait for a sellers disclosure before being able to make an offer.  After receiving the disclosure we got the offer in first thing like our realtor said to do.  Only to find out the owners were going to continue to show it all weekend long and not be ready to make a decision until Tuesday.  

Of course by Saturday our realtor informs us five offers have already come in.  Given we can't afford to partake in a bidding war it isn't looking good.  Though I did write a heartfelt letter to the owners explaining how much we liked their home and would love the opportunity to at least have a chance at it. You never know right? 

All I know is some how I need to find a way to reduce all the stress, or find ways to cope with it better. There's just so many things going on in all areas of our lives right now, truthfully it's very hard to get a grip on any one area. There are so many things on my mind lately.  I've been on the fence about some things as well which is causing all sorts of emotions to surface.  Feel like my mind is constantly in some sort of thought process, that or in a state of adrenaline rush.

One of the hardest things in life is learning how to handle the uncontrollable, you know finding ways to deal with life in spite of the things we cannot control. While the serenity prayer is good to focus on, I've yet to even come close to mastering it's wisdom. 

Here was a moment from the weekend where Cooper and I tried to relax outdoors.
