Stress is my middle name right now
Tuesday, August 11, 2015
I'm opening a new library in less than 3 weeks. Everyone around me is cranky and on edge. My tendinitis is flaring up big time, which means that most days using my hands hurts quite a bit. My garden is out of control. My dogs need to lose weight. My anniversary is in 2 weeks and I haven't even thought about a present yet. I'm gaining weight because food and liquor are replacing my other coping mechanisms. My pitbull wakes up 3 times a night crying to be covered back up. My golden itches constantly. (Blah blah blah, whine whine whine). So, let's look on the bright side: I have a job that I love, even though it's challenging right now. My husband and I have been married for 5 of thr 20 years we've been together, and he's as supportive and loving as ever. My dogs are in a stable, loving home and we're trying to fix the itching and leaky bladder. I can work the stress eating into my diet, so that it's not mindless any more. And walking the dogs is one more step towards healthier me and them.
