Must remember to breathe.
Just because I am trying to fit in an 8 hour day in 6, no one else is.
Breathe some more...think calming thoughts...fluffy bunnies or whatever...
DO NOT REPLY to the inane email that made you want to stomp over to your coworker and shove his job description in his face...
Instead, breathe lots more. DEEP, cleansing, TV birthing-class-breaths...Let. It. Go.
It's been rough, this re-entry from being away. Work-wise at any rate. The balance is skewed in a very bad way right now. In the shower I think about uploading my pictures and sharing with you my bits and pieces of share-able vacation news...and then instead I rush-rush-rush to get out the door so I can take rein of the various wild horses that have become the best metaphor for my work/workload.
And right now? Hi, howzit? The camera? NO IDEA where it might be...but we're breathing about that one as well.
Did I mention there might be moving involved?
The lease is up and as much as I like this neighborhood, I can't do another summer of smelling the sulfur-propane-exhaust mix that comes in through my living-room window. Not if the temperatures we've been seeing the past couple days are what summer will be this year. I pay too much money for toxic fumes...I'd rather pay too much money somewhere else. (That and the small thing about the break-ins earlier this year? Yeah, not liking the living here all that much.)
More later, promise.
