Off Kilter.


I'm off balance.

I think I have been running on empty too long. This is the second day in two weeks that I haven't woken up with a headache and how incredibly fortunate for me two set of blisters have popped up on my lips over the weekend - which means things really aren't right. How cute. One on top and one on bottom.

It's embarrassing that I wear my stress on the outside like this.

I'd like to think that I appear to be put somewhat together, but unfortunately I live with the curse of stress induced cold sores so my smile has a hard time hiding my frazzled mind.

Some of the biggest moments of my life are marked with them. I can't exactly remember how many grade school photos they've ruined; second grade was particularly bad. I do remember that one time in high school I had (count them) five! One was even in my nose.

Another - A souvenir from my honeymoon.
Next - A gift postpartum.
Now - A reminder that I am trying to make it through my last semester of nursing school.

8 more weeks. It's really so close that I can taste it.

(i'm planning my escape...with my family of course)

Maybe then I can get myself put back together.

I somehow came across your blog and I think you have an adorable family! We haven't even met, but maybe one day since our husbands are cousins (on the Brown side).

Had to leave a comment to thank you for sharing the naan and masala recipes!!! Made it for dinner last night and we both loved it. It's my new favorite meal.

I admire you.

Sorry things are so frazzling right now. You will make it through though... you're tough like that.

Love you, and miss you.

See you when it's all over- (it'll be here before we know it!)
