No doubt it has been a long week.
Between some of the dynamics at work, and the dynamics at home - it was just too much. My shoulders are completely clinched and causing back spasms. I went to the doctor and have spent the past few nights with a nice little muscle relaxer.
Heading to bed at 8:30 - 9pm and sleeping soundly until dawn. It's amazing how exhausted I am.
I am in desperate need of a real vacation - to just sleep late, lay around and read and eat really good food. Without checking email, without answering questions, without all of the fires I have to put out at work.
The post I wrote yesterday came after a little argument. It was basically the straw that broke the camel's back. Following the post - I made some coconut shrimp, took a muscle relaxer and crashed. I woke up and I felt a lot better. A little groggy - but good.
Today is Zumba day, and though I think it will make me feel 500 times better, I just want to lay low. It is supposed to storm - and I could not be happier. Let's wash the yuck of the week away.
Right now, I am sitting with a heating pad on my back, trying to stop these odd muscle spasms (which I will see an orthopedic specialist next week.) I bought myself a chic-fil-a chicken biscuit and diet coke, and I am watching the Parent Trap (the newest one with Lindsey Lohan.) I figure ABC Family is about as complicated as I need to make things today.
I am fine. I will be fine. I just hit an emotional breaking point yesterday. Needed to purge and I did.
Coming soon - a post suggestion about waking up as someone else! Dawn gave me a hard assignment, and I need to think on this one for a while!! I love a good challenge.
So the question I pose to you - how do you decompress and destress after a hard week?
