  •  What drove me nuts....and what didn't (1+ / 0-)

    What drove me nuts was the constant, constant, constant  "Are you doing anything for the holidays" the day before from my co-workers and rampaging "we're-all-just-one-big-happy-family" (trust me, we're NOT) lunatic of a boss.  

    What didn't drive me nuts was waking up when I felt like it the next day.  Having a great big breakfast with my husband.  Being lazy for awhile.  The weather's been unseasonably beautiful this year, and we went for a long-overdue hike in a nearby park area. Cubicle dwelling rots my soul if I'm not careful, and walking the trail was unbelievably restorative.  

    We worked up quite an appetite, and a big dish of black beans & rice & sausage really hit the spot.

    Working on my book when I wasn't exhausted and stressed out was wonderful.

    Hanging out with my husband was even wonderfuller.  I'm so lucky to be married to somebody who accepts me just the way I am.  I wouldn't want him to be anybody but the self he really is, either, so I guess we're both lucky!
