Here's my second stress blog for the stress busting challenge.
Things that are stressing me:
*Work. I went from not having anything to do, to having too much. It always works that way!
Deep breath. I know I don't have to get everything done today, and there is plenty of time left in the day to do things. If it comes down to it. I will talk to my mentor when we make phone calls this afternoon, and see if things can wait.
*Hubby's bday. It's on Saturday. I have no gift planned, no dinner or cake planned. I was hoping he would tell me what he wants to do, since he's feeling 'old' and his work schedule has him exhausted to the bone. He hasn't come up with anything yet, and now I'm feeling bad for putting it all on him.
Deep breath. I know he doesn't want to make a big deal out of it, not that he ever does. Get a nice card to put in his car that he can see on his way to work, and if you find anything else put it there too. If not, that's ok. Take him out to dinner and a movie, or netflix a movie, on Sunday if he doesn't decide what he wants to do. Don't push the museum on him - he may be too tired.
*My workouts. For some reason, I'm stressing my lack of workouts. I can't even explain it.
Deep breath. It's fine. My knees have been bad lately, and yesterday's yoga got skipped because I was having dizzy spells/head rush feeling. That's health, and that's an ok reason. I'll focus on either arms or legs with Wii Fitness Coach tonight, and tomorrow I'll hit the gym and do the opposite after the doctor's appointment. Ican't jump in with both feet - slowly get myself there. It's fine to skip the pool, last time it was so cold I was shivering.
*Doctor's appointments. I've been taking so much time off lately for appts, I feel like my work won't be able to help but notice. Not the locals, the higher-ups. I have notes and appointment sheets, but still.
Deep breath. I know they know I had a major surgery earlier this year. That in itself should keep me in the clear. Until someone says something, I have no reason to worry. I know my supervisor would give me a heads up if she heard anything. She knows all the gory details, so she would also stick up for me if it came down to that. Also, I just got my 5-year recognition and gift, so that's got to count towards something.
Whew! Stress is wearing me out. Glad to get that all off my shoulders.
