Signs I May Need a Vacation
I am literally the busiest I have been in my life. Between a crazy-overwhelming workload and taking care of a Kindergartner who spends more time being shuttled from place to place than attending school, a Preschooler who goes to a different school, and a neurotic puppy that needs attention all the time, I am stretched thinner than a rubber band. I've tried to remain calm, stoic, but I have no outlet to vent my stress. Recently I have noticed that my lack of relaxation is starting to take its toll on me. I've started exhibiting odd behaviors:
I went to go get supplies for work, and drove halfway home without thinking about it.
I dialed 9 to get an outside line.... calling my Mom from my home phone.
I sometimes aimlessly wander into the kitchen at work, and wonder why I got there (it usually has to do with going to the printing room).
I've totally started to talk to myself.
I only really want to watch one show right now: "How I Met your Mother", because there are no stressful situations in the show.
I sent an envelope, a bill and NO CHECK to my childcare.
Seriously, I am in need of some palm trees, warm beaches and Corona, stat. Who's with me? And better yet, if you're with me, are you paying?
