Living with anxiety

don't know if you know this about me, but a year ago I suffered my first major anxiety attack. having gone through some life altering changes, I was not ready for the stress that was going to be thrown my way. Now a year later, taking myself off of medication, I still struggle, but I am trying hard to except it and try to live with it. being a perfectionist, I blame my mother for this, is my down fall. I hate making mistakes and when I do, that is when stress comes at me 100% causing it's return..... Praying has helped and laying off all that caffeine I was drinking. I still don't feel and probably will never feel at peace, but I try to live with it. I thought I would share just in case you might be suffering from this as well. YOU are not alone... just me!

St. Louis Gyspy Caravan

What fun was had by all.. I took my son and two
friends of mine Leslie and Michel. Thank you all for
the great time I had shopping and eating and a little more
shopping for all the great finds we all found. Another exciting thing
that happened was that I ran into my friend Linda Harre from Studio Stuff.

Hello Linda! It is amazing that even though there were probably hundreds of people
that attended the caravan some how Linda and I were meant to bump into each other.
Call it fate or it was just meant to be we crossed paths and met again. AMAZING! It was nice
seeing you and hopefully I was not to sweaty or smelly...because that sun was really beating down
on us.... I think that is why I finally threw in the towel and I did not finish all of the show...

Pictures below of all the goodies we found...

Is it shabby or what?????

Well this is one of my treasure finds at the flea market
yesterday. So I jumped at it, stuffed it into my highlander
which can I say fit just right (like it was meant to be) and sped home
to give it a good cleaning. What? you think I am crazy..... That's okay. It
will hold some of my art supplies.

What's your mother's day plans?

Would I be mean if I passed on the Botanical Gardens to just stay home
and enjoy a nice day in the yard planting more flowers..... Every year for mommies
day the Botanical Gardens seem to be the picked choice by my hubby......

Mother's Day + Flowers = The Botanical Garden...

This year I turned down the invitation to just stay in my yard bare footed with water
flowing and maybe some more plants being planted.... A few pictures taken.... and maybe
a little bar b que of some kind of meat... preferably a big steak......

Happy Mommmies day to you and may it be relaxing....
