Take two deep breaths and call me in the morning

So I’m stressed out. Really stressed out. Nothing in my life that is earth shattering, but just a bunch of little things that all add up. This month is particularly busy for me. A new job where I’m still in learning mode, packing and moving my elderly father to a new apartment (closer to me, however, which will decrease some stress in the long run!), hosting Thanksgiving, having a house guest…stuff like that. I literally do not have one free day off this month for relaxing. Today I was supposed to go to my monthly dinner group and I snapped. Running over to my dad’s to fix his computer, going to the laundromat, battling the crowds at the store to get groceries to make my appetizer course. My head was pounding, I was in a hurry, my chest was tight. All of a sudden I couldn’t take it anymore. So I cancelled on my dinner group (which sucks and is flaky, but oh well) and decided to take this afternoon and evening off. I need some ME time. Accordingly, I will reflect more on this subject at a later date. As for now I’m off to take a bath and listen to my “Shanghai Girls” audiobook. The world is just going to have to go on without me… In the meantime, here’s a very helpful stress management link for you all who may be feeling the same way:
