Chit Chat

Last week was my first week back to work after a long summer vacation and I am already feeling stressed. It just feels like there is so much to do and accomplish. Time seems to just be disappearing faster than it should. So on Friday, I decided that I need to calm down and relax. I have my plans made, everything scheduled, and there is no need worrying about things before they happen. Right?
Friday after work I set out to have some fun and to de-stress. I had a great time on Friday evening going shopping with some of my siblings. I only shopped for things on my must have list, but I had fun. Saturday I slept in. Hopefully after this week I will be use to my normal work schedule and the early mornings. Then I went out to the movies with one of my best friends. We watched 2 Guns. I thought it was an alright movie. It had a good deal of humorous parts and kept me laughing, just what I needed. I also had a great time hanging out with my friend. She has been super busy at work recently and hasn't had a lot of free time. So she probably need to de-stress too. Then I spent an hour on the phone talking to one of my best friends that lives in another city. We had been playing phone tag all week. It was good to talk to her and hear that she has good news her job was turned into a full time position, so she doesn't have to look for something else! On Sunday I spent some time watching reruns of Smallville, playing with the cats, and painting my nails.
I am also already planning some things for the future that will let me take a break from work and stress. If I buy tickets for things and go ahead and make plans now while I have the time- it just makes everything easier. Also, I then I have things to looks forward too. What do you do to de-stress? What are some of the things that you do when you need a break from work?

  1. Sorry your already stressed doll. I know how that can be. I think sometimes you just have to do the little things to de-stress at the end of the day, like a warm bath or music or something like that. It's the only thing we can do sometimes. We need to release the built up stress, so we're ready the next day :)) Hope it gets better xxx

  2. I have not at all mastered the art of de-stressing...and I really need to. I hope you're feeling more relaxed after the weekend.

  4. Hope you feel better...stress is no fun!

    I always have to plan vacations in advance so I have something to look forward to. I need a big vacay every six months. Like clockwork, I start getting run down and tired so it is just what I need! Next up Hawaii in Oct! Yay.

  5. Going back to work after a vacation is always stressful. Hang in there!

  6. It's so hard to go back to work after a vacation. I usually go to the movies so I can completely just zone out for a bit.
