I need to shake off this job stress. I knew late last night that I wouldn’t be going to work today.
I called in again and simply told him I needed to be off and was taking some vacation time. Tall Poppy makes all the decisions so I thought I’d let him without my interference. 🙂
I slept in and that felt great. I have always bragged about being a good sleeper but the last few weeks have been different. I slept decent considering we were awakened by tornado sirens going off a few times during the night. We do live in “Tornado Alley”. Kevin, the dogs and I headed to the basement a couple of times so needless to say, that wasn’t the best night’s sleep.
I’ll go in tomorrow refreshed but not happy about it! I normally shake off work stress by the time I fasten my seat-belt in the car to go home. I usually never bring my work home. But with other shifts and more people and a new supervisor in training..I’m on call all the time to help direct them. My content life and running really is my savior.
I have enjoyed my day immensely! I walked the dogs twice and then ran 6 very hard miles. I just ran where I felt like it and let my runkeeper GPS tell me how many miles. I actually thought it was going to end up as 5 miles but when I finished, it was 6.01! It’s a beautiful day and that run made me feel great, after I finished it!
I cleaned hardwood floors, mopped and got some groceries and played with Peyton and Eli in the backyard.
I was energetic so I mowed and weed-eated the yard. It looks awesome and now it’s about to rain. Yard-work gives me almost as much satisfaction as running does. I love admiring a beautiful yard that I help make that way.
Tornado warnings have been off and on today. Peyton and Eli won’t leave my side. They are big babies.
I wish I were rich so I never had to work and everyday was like or could be like today.
I’m now kicked back on the sofa watching “Criminal Minds.” That’s my veg out TV. I guess that might say something about my mind? 🙂
