The Art of Worry: A Mommy Chronicle

The Art of Worry: A Mommy Chronicle I worry about writing this post. It is 3:24 am and I wide awake, heart pounding, throat tight, rear end in agony.  Yes, I will clarify.  The first two symptoms are because of worry, the last is the result of a nasty fall yesterday afternoon.

I am tired. And – we are almost out of peanut butter.  I leave for Dallas today; leaving is a lot of work. And I can’t help but worry. I impress myself with my ability to worry.
