What I'm worried about

I am a worrier by nature. I am always worried about one thing or another.  Usually lots of things.  Here are a few things on my mind this week.

- Money.
Always and forever.  I don't know what it feels like not to worry about money.  I wonder sometimes if I ever will.

- The Iowa State men's trip to the Sweet 16.
They'll be playing UConn in NYC.  Basically UConn's backyard. I'm not sure how they'll hold up without Hilton Magic and lots of cardinal and gold. 

- My boudoir shoot on Saturday.
I did not lose as much (or any of the) weight I wanted to before this shoot. I'm concerned about how I'm going to look.

- Putting together an entry for a fiction contest.
A friend told me about the contest, and now I'm obsessively trying to get an entry together.  It has to be less than 1,000 words and be an interaction between two original characters. A thousand words isn't that many, y'all.  Eek!

- Friends and friendships.
Some people in my circle are going through some tough times. I want to help, but there's honestly not much I can do.  And I hate that feeling.  I also have a few friendships that feel a bit (or a lot) shaky at the moment. Friendships I value a lot.  I hate uncertainty.

- The sale of my house.
Communication with my renters (prospective buyers) has been sporadic, and I'm just ready to be settled.

- The Rangers' roster.
There are so many injuries.  The start of the season might be rocky.

What's on your mind?


  1. Girl I am worried to death about the Sweet 16 too! I can't believe my Vols are dancing still! :) I'm forever and always worried in some form about money.

  2. That's a lot to be worried about. I hope you find some ways to have a little bit of peace.

  3. I am so proud of you for entering the contest! I can't wait!! You know I am sending you prayers!

  4. Also worried about the Rangers roster... my poor little Rangers... They need a good year to boost confidence (and make Ian Kinsler eat his words... dick...)

    The boudoir shoot will go awesome!! I did one a few years ago. It's amazing what lighting and poses and a professional can do (even without photoshop... trust me, just take a few looks at the camera display between shots). It's the ultimate confidence booster. I caught myself saying "is that really me?! I look hot!" several times.
