If you are anything like me, when you're stressed and there are too many things beyond your control that are sneaking into your thoughts and causing you even more stress, you deny it all. Okay, you don't have to be like me, but I just keep myself busy because if I stop to sit down, it's all going to fall apart and I don't have time for an emotional breakdown at this moment.
Half a dozen Thanksgiving Day cards? Check. I don't normally even send out Thanksgiving Day cards, but you do what you have to do, you know? Pay bills that aren't even due for three weeks? Check. You know, why do I need that extra money hanging out in my bank account?
Hair cut? Quick trip to the nearby town to buy unnecessary makeup products? Console myself with random online purchases that I know I will later regret but being unable to stop myself from retail therapy? Check. Check. Check.
|The thread on the third button is red on purpose. It adds a pop of color to the coat. People comment on the red thread all the time.

Some things you can control. I'm going to focus on those.
