  1. Thank you for helping me feel better about my little meltdown yesterday! I have the same (I guess, anxiety) when people show up at my house unannounced. We had the nicest neighbor stop in yesterday and my husband had to talk me down from my “freak out ledge” I was on. It’s strange because I’m usually very welcoming, but when it’s random and in my home, I become a mess! He had to ask me to offer her a drink! That’s how blank my mind went! (Especially if I haven’t even brushed my teeth yet and I’ve got piles of clothes on the couch waiting to be ironed!)

      You’re more than welcome Greta! And thank you for following me again on my new site! Anxiety is so much about a lack of control and I think that’s why it panics us so much when things either don’t go to plan (I used to have full on meltdowns when plans went awry!) or are completely unexpected! It’s the ultimate vulnerability letting someone into our house when it’s not ‘visitor ready’. xx
