Are you at your last straw?

Real Estate Agent with Edina Realty

I'm gonna write a nice sized post regarding this later, but I had to stop by and tell this funny.

Work has been a challenge for me this past five weeks. Heck, life has been a challenge. Hubby has been out of town visiting his family and I've been here with the two ver busy toddlers. Without a minute to myself it's been a crazy long run of it...

On Tuesday I was beyond my patience level and my kiddos were testing EVERY one of my buttons. I was truly at my last straw and I told someone that. I don't remember who it was, but I remember saying it out loud.

Today we were on our way to the airport and stopped by to check my mailbox. Someone had taken pity on me and dropped off a whole package of straws with a note that said.... "I heard you were on your last straw and I had a few extra."

Too cute to pass up.


In the meantime... if you are looking to move into the area... I'll wait for you to call!

Excellent!  A thoughtful acknowledgement is all it takes to make a huge difference.  We'll keep this in mind to 'pass it forward' when needed.  Thanks for sharing, Lindsey!

True Carra - I do.

George - That's true. It's just the simple acknowledgment that made me smile instead of frown. :)

Scott. I think that it's quite common amongst parents of growing children. You must have really young'uns yet. :) You'll find that they will provide you lots to write about over the next years.
