One more day! I just have to get through today, and then I will be on vacation for 11 days! I feel like I have been waiting forever for today to get here! I have not been on vacation / taken time off from work since February. This desperately needed break is 6-months in the making! And I am hoping beyond hope that I can have eleven days of NOT thinking about sexual assault. I dont want to hear about it, read about it, see it on tv - nothing. Is that really too much to ask??
Especially given that the past 3 weeks have pretty much been unbearable. The past few nights had been a bit better - I was focusing a bit better and able to block out work thoughts pretty well before bed, but last night was pretty bad. I was struggling a lot - it is definitely time for a break. In order to block out work thoughts, I've essentially been obsessing over re-organizing my craft room. So when I start thinking about work when I shouldnt be, I immediately turn my attention to craft room organization. Probably not what the social worker had in mind when he said I needed to work on new coping skills. I havent even written in my journal like he told me, too. So, yeah I should probably do that instead. But, I really do want to re-organize my craft room - again. I need more storage space because my desks are seriously cluttered! I've been googling and searching on pinterest for "craft room desks" or "craft room ideas" or "craft room office" and there are so many great DIY desks out there, but I dont think J is going to want to help me build a large desk for my craft room - us doing DIY projects doesnt work out very well! I have a few ideas so I think whatever I end up doing will work out, and will likely involve a new desk - whether I build it or just buy it, who knows, but I'll share pics eventually :)
I may not update much while I am gone :)
