My heart is about to explode. I feel like I’m thinking in lists these days.

Long lists. Grocery lists. To-do lists. People to call/ email/ Skype-with lists.

Lists that don’t make much sense.

Lists that only make sense to me.

Lists that have no structure, but a clear plan (again, to me).

Lists that are simply put- organized chaos.

There is so much on my heart.

God is waaay too good to this girl, because I have a handful of amazing friends that are genuinely concerned for my well-being, telling me to take a little time away.

I’m thinking a road trip somewhere to a sandy beach is in order once Still Standing Magazine launches! Any takers? ;)

I’m not sure if it’s stress, or joy or a mixture of just so much going on in our world, but I can cry at the drop of a hat.

It’s ridonkulous.

On the bright side (and there IS a bright side… thank God!) our meeting this past week at Texas Children’s for the NICU was amazing. I don’t know how much I can disclose here, but the changes that will hopefully be implemented to make the stay of the NICU babies and their families will be nothing short of amazing. I’m still so humbled to even be a part of it. Aside from that frizz ball on top of my head, I love my badge!!!!

On Sunday afternoon I met up with a group of gorgeous women – all in h-twown, all bloggers just like me! For once I felt normal in my hometown! ;)

No seriously, it was great to meet Lindsay in person, and so many other beautiful ladies. Lindsay and I swapped ads for a while before we accidentally found out we were both in h-town (thanks to the annoying Linkedin emails being sent from me to the whole world)! ;)

Hope your Monday is gentle on you friends xxxx

ps- I will be auctioning off some of my subway art pieces on the facebook page later today :)

    We are still very close with the staff who cared for our sons in the NICU where they spent their all-too-short lives. We’ve been raising money for the hospital and offering input to the staff of the NICU on our experience but I’d love to know more about how you’re getting involved at TCH. Would there be any way you could share? My husband and I have made recommendations based on our experience and they have responded positively but if there is more we could do, we would love the chance. Maybe follow your lead? So glad I found your blog – the common threads are humbling.

    I assure you that I’m feeling just as stretched and overwhelmed with lists right now! And lists seem to dominate my life in an odd way. Years ago when I was in the hospital, I was actually told that I need to rest. One example of that was to “let go of your lists”. NO JOKE! I did for as long as I needed to, and then… BAM! I was back! ;-)

    I LOVED getting to meet you yesterday! Wahoo! And Cypress is fairly close to Tomball, right? We should definitely hang out again once Mr. TBS and I are settled into our new place! Thanks for sharing the picture too! It is officially saved to my laptop. AND… I will be posting it along with the photos that Michelle e-mails to us.

      That is so crazy but I totally believe you. Lists are the only way things get done in my house, but they are major stressful! Did your doc happen to have an alternative? seriously, I’m all ears. I am really bad at time management.

      And a big yes! we def have to hang out :) I think you’ll like Tomball. It’s much quieter than Houston, and open space. I love the berry farms and the cute shops downtown Tomball.

    It makes me so happy to find bloggers from Texas! And your post mentioned Texas Children’s, a place close to my heart right now! Praise the Lord nothing happens on accident :) My roommate’s little cousin has been spending a great deal of his time there battling a recently discovered cancer. I’ve only heard wonderful things about the hospital though!

    I’m also loving your subway art, by the way :) Fantastic!
