Stress management

Or rather, lack thereof. I ♥ my job, but last week was hugely stressful, and I didn't seem to be able to deal with it. By the end of the week, I was writing long, frustrated, and brutally honest email replies, and I actually asked for a Tom Sawyer day. I was going to take a half-TSday on Friday, but ended up leaving even earlier when I realized that it wasn't my keyboard's fault, even though I seemed to be taking everything out on it. The extended weekend seems to have helped, even though I was still very tense for most of Saturday.

Exercise is supposed to be good for stress, and I have been going to the gym. I don't think the endorphines are kicking in, though. I don't feel good after exercising. I don't feel bad either, but I don't feel good. I feel the same as when I walked in. *sigh* Maybe I'm expecting too much too fast. And I forgot to weigh myself Saturday! Darn it! I just remembered!

A final note: I discovered this weekend while cleaning the bathrooms (YES!!!! THEY'RE CLEAN!!!!!) that our bathtub doesn't get dirty, because we don't use it very often. What it does get is dusty. If I didn't have to dust the bathtub, cleaning the bathrooms would be about 15-20 minutes shorter. So if anyone has any ideas for how to make a bathtub dust cover, I would love to hear them!



How about you use your tub as a dirty laundry hamper. The dirty clothes will cover all of the tub surface and thus protuct it from dust. Attractive? Hell no. Practical? Yup!
