daily stressers of everyday life PIOG

 I was sitting here thinking about my day in general. I have actually noticed peoples complaints more than I used to, since I have been pregnant this time around. Anyway, as I am sitting here, I am thinking about all the things us women, men, anyone really complain about! Like today for instance, I was complaining about the floors, see being a neat freak, dirty floors stress me out..... BUT then I realized, some people would be damn happy to even have a floor, sticky or not! Same with the laundry, I do several loads a day and am always wondering how in the hell I got cursed with so many dirty clothes, BUT then I realize that some people don't get to wear clean clothes unless they walk to the river and soak them the best they can with no soap and all that mud. But even more disturbing to me was my frustration at cooking each night for my lovely family because 1/2 the time the kids don't eat it, When somewhere a mother is wishing she could cook a meal for her kids, and wishing her kids were so well fed that they would be picky about what she served! All this thinking got me to realize that I am damn lucky, and if I want to complain, I better make it damn good, because so many people would give their left arm to be me, and have my complaints! So, I am going t end this asking you this.....

Have you had that moment where you realize hoe minimal and petty your daily stressers are?

Thank you! JoLee G. Waddlekiss

Yes, once every week. I find myself in a "flip-out mood" then I just wake up.

I very rarely, if ever, got stressed. Now though, I'm struggling with handling my stress, and they aren't insignificant. Not as bad as some, but it my pregnancy and the adoption isn't a cake walk either.

 I too am having pregnancy stressers! Some scary complications, so I must say good luck! Also prayers for your adoption process!

Thank you. Good luck to you too. I was doing ok, until we started with the whole adoption thing. As careful as I've been and as easy I've been taking it, its still stressful. How far along are you? What has been going on, if you don't mind my asking?

 I am about 12 weeks ( lol have to check the calendar). I had major bleeding, and it was some sort of hemorrhage. The bleeding stopped and baby is moving and has a great heartbeat! They say the hemorrhage is clotting and should be fine, but that is some scary stuff! I will pray for you, even if you are Christian, I look at it this way, it can't hurt, right?    If you ever want to tal let me know! :)

I'm not Christian, but I believe in the power of prayer, regardless of which deity it is to. I'm sorry you've been dealing with that. I hope baby sticks, prayers and sticky dust to you! Same goes, if you want to talk or vent or whatever, I'm here :)
