Why am I Trying To Stay Calm?

I had someone ask me through a comment why I am trying to stay calm. So here's the answer to her question... I am re-posting some of this for all my new followers that haven't see it before :)

My mom is always telling me "calm down my dear". Another reason, HELLO... I have three teenage boys :)

I just got called to teach the Sunbeams. After my first day last Sunday I really need to stay calm :) I am trying to take things minute by minute and some days second by second to stay as happy and calm as possible :) Hope you all have a great day! ♥ Hugs!

You seem so nice and calm on your blogs and in person!

Melissa said...

I echo Kristina. When I met you at the lunch, you seem like such a calm, cool cat. Who knew??
Good luck with the three teenage boys. Been there.Done that.

Kristie said...

I need to calm down quite a bit too! I love 'calms' an herbal sublingual through Hylands, it really works- my issue is teenage girls!

Tink said...

You seem to handle things with such grace! You're an amazing person! I love you.

Honey, don't try to be calm....embrace the chaos! It's much funner!
Besides, the true joy comes years later when you watch those teenage boys carry their own screaming little ones out of church after a huge tantrum.....it's a beautiful thing, makes me warm and fuzzy inside!
Love your blog!

KC Mom said...

Your retro banner cracks me up...love it.
Deep breaths...staying calm...I think we could all use that advice!

Ginger said...

I can totally relate to the 3 teenage boys...been there done that, (just like Melissa said)
I used to get so stressed out all the time. Now I hate to say it, but the empty nest gets a little boring for me.

Ya know girl, when I met you on Saturday you seemed anything but STRESSED. I would never have thought of you that way. You were outgoing, anxious to talk to everyone, made people feel comfortable, so willing to include me in your converations, warm, funny, beautiful---------stressed?? Nah

Kathleen said...

I can only imagine what 3 teenage boys would be like, def. agree with other people that you seem calm on your blogs. :o) You are always spreading the comment love - which just brings smiles to people's faces.

Kathy said...

I'm always reminding myself to breathe...and my 3 teenage boys are all growed up!

Liz said...

Of course I don't really know you, but you just seem so sweet and laid back...I'm gonna need some tips about raising teenage boys in a few years...At least all 5 of them can't be teenagers at the same time!

Rachel said...

I would never know that a stress ball existed behind your fun, happy, and relaxing posts!! You're like me, I'm constantly stressed out even when there's nothing to be stressed about, I find stress!

Shultzybabe said...

You are crazy. That's why you are you. And I'm glad that someone stresses out as much as me. I just hold it in better I guess. ♥ ya!

Mechelle said...

3 teenage boys ... say no more. m

Liz said...

I couldn't imagine trying to keep up with 3 teenagers. I can see why you are always so stressed! :o)

Michelle said...

Sunbeams--hope you can take Sunday naps!!

I only have 2 teens--1 boy, 1 girl. But have 4 little ones and they tire me out!!

Calm??? or Sane!!!

nikkicrumpet said...

I love the Sunbeams...that is the funnest job. They are so darn cute!

Kristin said...

I think staying calm should be a goal for everyone!

justabeachkat said...

I've received a few yucky comments over the years, but not too many. It's hurtful though. I say just consider the source and move on. There are too many nice people out there to worry about those that aren't.

Hugs!
Kat
