Have You Done a Selfie Page?


For a Facebook group I am part of (PLxSU Trio Challenge, closed group to Stampin' Up! Demonstrators I believe). They do weekly challenges. This week is Selfies. Doesn't have to be yourself. 

This turned out to be a timely challenge for all that is going on at home. Our double move, which is nearing completion, and how it has affected our family. I certainly have not been caring for my own self. Little and horrible sleep. Eating somewhat crappy. More coffee than I'd like to admit or worse, instant coffee at times (ew!!!). Family stress and drama. 

We are so close to the end of this very long (9 month) process of moving out, cleaning out my parents house (still far from complete), getting set up there, things breaking at my parents house (of course!!!), redoing just about everything in our house (it really is like a newer better house, can't tell we were there 17 years), shoving stuff in a storage locker to deal with later (but not much later), kids adjusting to new area and new schools, son joining a high school sport and the time requirements of that (hello 6 days a week Lacrosse), mom in rehab, mom out of rehab and finding her a new place, getting mother adjusted to new place (she has been the least cooperative in this whole process), cats adjusting to new place, cars getting attitudes, knees falling apart again (more later), daughter now driving (as Martha says "this is a good thing"), husband and I sleeping not well on camp cots for 5 months, a savings account that is now zero (but grateful we had one), a million little decisions (the most draining part for me), packing, unpacking, packing, and then often repacking stuff, health problems (not me this time!), hubs and I living apart most of this process (need a date night honey ;-), many nights in the hospital, no holidays or birthdays really celebrated, moving into a house that's more than a third smaller and about one fifth the studio space for me, more IKEA runs with my friend than either of us will admit (goes beyond retail therapy and more like hiding out there), 3 am calls from my mother about some invented crisis that really doesn't exist, living on a roller coaster instead of a merry-go-round, having to say good-bye to my Miche business and idle back on my Stampin' Up! Business until this is all done, not stamping for long periods (hello! This is my therapy!!!!), in general not taking time for myself). 

Which leads me all to this week and near the end of a long road and finally taking a little time for myself and having a little fun at my own expense. 

So, have you ever done a "selfie" page?
