Any takers? My sister Ashley is my usual sounding board but I think I'm wearing her out. She is really good at giving sage advice. And she isn't afraid to tell me the honest truth about things. She lives in California and we talk nearly every day. There have been times when she has said, "If I was there, I would grab you by the shoulders and shake some sense into you" or something like that. Sometimes I need someone to do it.
Sam is good for it too. Sometimes I get so wrapped around the axle about stuff like the cabinets or a family issue, that I just need a calming voice of reason, a life coach. Sam is always reminding me that I'm 32 because sometimes my behavior would lead you to believe I'm 13, or when I'm really bad, 3.
I finally had to back off of the cabinets for a little while. They were consuming me. Guess what? I could do the cabinets but it would bug me that it still didn't look quite right. We don't have the money to do it anyway so that makes the decision really easy. And we don't know if we are moving, or staying or what, so now is not the time to dive into a massive home-improvement project. I realized that I'm restless. I get bored and I pick something like my cabinets to focus all of my energy on. I know I just ended that sentence with a preposition.
But I still need a life coach.
