I'm in the middle of what feels like the most stressful week of the year for me. Although, just as the grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence, a stressful week always seems like THE MOST stressful week ever. So, who knows? In any case, I'm coming off of the natural "high" from the holidays, which makes me a little sad. We bundle so many get-togethers and events leading up to Christmas. It's crazy and hectic, but also very fun and magical. Then, afterwards, I'm dumped into my "End of Year" craziness at work. However, unlike the holidays, with work there is no hectic/magical balance at the end of the year; just busy, hectic, crazy and more hectic. Everyone wants this or that done before the year-end, and unfortunately I'm still as behind as I was all year long, so these deadlines are impossible. And, I'm not talking the "I'm Possible" kind of impossible; I mean impossible impossible. Some stuff will get done and unfortunately a lot will not. So, I will probably spend most of the week just stressing out. At least now I have exercise to quell some of the stress rather than the go-to tub of ice cream I've used in so many past years. Anyway, this is just a quick "poor me" post to get it off my chest. Maybe a cup of herbal tea and a good night of sleep will have me singing a different tune tomorrow morning... I can always hope!
