Stress. There's lots of it this fall.
Every now and then, I get really worked up.
Then, I take a deep breath.
I remember that fear makes us do silly things--at least, it makes me do silly things.
I take a few drops of Bach Rescue Remedy (a homeopathic medicine for stress). Our whole family uses it when Kieran has a seizure. It works. I've even heard a rumour that Jennifer Aniston uses it--hey, we all copied her hairstyle back in 1994-ish...
When homeopathy doesn't work...
There's always wine.
