An Ugly Word: Stress

In the last few weeks, I have experienced feeling a large amount of stress. I think that it's normal considering the situation that I'm currently going through...

I'm working 5-6 days a week. 
I'm trying to pack all of my belongings to move. 
I had to figure out and reserve a moving truck. 
I'm trying to close on a new home. 
I'm reviewing, faxing, emailing, signing said home documents everyday.
I am going through yearly tests at work. 
I'm watching my savings account slowly dwindle (nothing is cheap folks).

Yesterday the stress shot through the roof. One of the above mentioned things went completely down hill and I had a breakdown. Like sobs came out of me. 

That was yesterday. 

Now I have to get back up on the horse and just try to keep moving forward. I have to keep boxing things up, I have to keep signing documents and I have to pass tests. 

I must do this. 
I can do this.

You'll get through it lady, just remember that soon enough you'll be moved and in your NEW HOME. Keep the end in sight!

I'm so sorry! It always does seem like EVERYTHING happens at once right? You can totally do this! In fact, YOU ARE doing it.

You're amazing.

Well it's only natural lady! You are moving across the country!! That's just crazy on its own & then add the home and work and tests?! You need to let yourself have big cries here & there otherwise you'll explode! You can totally do this! Keep your head up :)

Sooner or later the paperwork will stop.
