Surviving October

I'm counting the days til Halloween is over. November can't get here soon enough.
There's so much going on, inside and at work and at home, and it seems like I'm constantly busy, constantly behind in my work, even when I work after school and in the evening and on the weekends and go to work early. There's something always going wrong or getting in the way (from someone else-- outside people or outside situations) that keep me from getting my work completely finished. Its so frustrating. I haven't been handling it well at all. I've lost a few pounds this month, as well as a few pieces of my mind I think. Just need to get through a few more days.
Something that has been helping is keeping a journal, but its an art journal, and we're still doing that. So we're all getting addicted to needing to do art nearly every day, although we rarely have time. Been spending a little bit of money on chalks, scrapbooking supplies, ink pads, things like that. We're starting to need artwork like we need air.

I'm glad for you that October's almost over!!!! Art is a GREAT way to journal and to "get things out." Keep it up! Has therapy been helpful lately, too?
