Trying to reduce the stress in our house is not easy

Today is a totally blah kinda day. We are in a weird place at the moment and that’s creating some unneeded stress for everyone.

The boys (meaning Elliott and Emmett) are very stressed out over the enormous tree in our yard and are worried that more of the tree is going to fall. This has them on edge, which influences their behavior and mood.

I want to get them out of the house today and away from what’s stressing them out.

It’s a really nice first full day of Fall and a trip to the park could be a great way to spend the afternoon.

Unfortunately, Lizze is not doing so well today either and her migraine is limiting her movements right now. Anything that we go and do this afternoon, will likely be without her. 😔

Gavin doesn’t appear to be stressed out like the boys are but he’s off in other ways. I don’t know how to describe it other than saying he’s just off today.

Anyway, aside from being a constant reminder to the boys, how close we came to having our house smashed, the tree itself is relatively benign right now. It’s absolutely taking up most of the yard but it’s also not creating any more problems than what it already has, at least in the short term. We can’t do anything about it right now and so I’m trying to pretend it’s not even there. The boys are unable to do the same.

I figured that getting away from everything for a little while might do everyone some good.

There will be plenty of time to worry about everything else when we get back. Right now, I just want to usher in some stress relief for everyone and maybe we can finish the weekend off on a positive footing.
