Wow! Thank you for all of the birthday wishes yesterday. I was receiving birthday wishes all day via text, phone, blog, email, message boards at SFTIO and Facebook. It was fabulous to have such a wide-reaching birthday "party". In fact, all of those "reach out and touch someone" moments were the absolute best part of my day.
Otherwise, I've been coping. Coping with the store closing (a third store in our community announced that they were closing as well today - three out of the five our Local Scrapbook Stores are now closing in the next month - that's crazy!) I've had to cope with everyone in my immediate family viscinity being sick and I don't want to catch it. My car was taken to the shop for some repairs that have now exceeded $1000 and that number seems to be growing. Oh, so many things going on in one little 24-hour period.
But I got cake.
And some fun little gifts.
And some time with The Hubs (even if he was coughing like crazy) to watch some movies we've had hanging around.
And plenty of rest and naps.
I love naps.
But I'm seriously flirting with a depression the size or our most recent recession. (I'm a poet, did ya know it?) I don't cope well with changes. Yes, I know they are inveitable, but that doesn't mean they're pleasant and wanted.
So, help me out. What are your tricks and tips to cope with life changes?
