Don't they know all that stress is bad for our health? Sorry to be joking about it, but I'm feeling maxed out worrying about friends and family this week.
I'm grateful my biggest crisis today is that I forgot to bring my snacks to work with me today. I usually pack two apples - one to eat mid-morning and one to eat mid-afternoon. I'm always hungry and eager for my snacks.
I'm worried if I go over to the cafe across the street to buy a couple of apples I'll come out with a bagel or a muffin too.
I think my best strategy is to have a piece of gum at my usual snack times. That will give my mouth something to chew on and (hopefully) distract me from lack of apples.
I'll report back how it turns out.
I learned a coworker's son is in the hospital from shrapnel injuries from Monday's explosions at the marathon.
Otherwise, today is a good day. I feel like I'm making progress. I'm wearing a springlike outfit and that's cheering me up.
