Hands up, I'm not okay
Had to communicate with husband that I was feeling overwhelmed today. I was not having a good mental health day. Baby is super cranky at the moment, I think he's teething on top of a cold. I've got the baby cold. We're both not sleeping particularly well. I'm hitting heads with everyone around me, and getting upset with myself that I can't control my tone or my waspishness.
I went to our house and decided I needed to do something destructive. So, I ripped a weird, useless piece of wood off the fireplace wall. Then I stripped half the wallpaper off.
The menial task with just the stripping to focus on helped me calm down and chill out. I came out of the house a few hours later feeling much calmer, more centred and balanced.
I'll do the rest tomorrow and that's a good job, done! One more step towards our new home.
