I have always been that person who, on the day of a test or before something major, checks out or daydreams about after the stress. Its a form of escapism and its rather enjoyable really. I find I’m always more at ease when I’ve detached from the crisis and am floating high in the clouds. Even as a child I would hum while my parents would be addressing some bad behavior of mine. Probably not the best way to handle every situation, but it comes in handy when I think I’ve reached my limit(see virtual cigarettes) and not so handy when Eddy and I are arguing.
All that to say, I stumbled onto a wonderful blog called Journey Mama during a recent escape and what a find! This wife and mother of 3 (with one on the way) recently moved to India with her family. She writes so beautifully you won’t be able to stop thinking about her. . .and her journey is so gracefully displayed, you will be inspired. Read the 100 Things About Rae it will touch your heart and make you laugh.
