A brand new week

All the drama of last week is over.  Well not really but I am moving forward.  I need this week to be drama-free and Monday has been good so far!  I hate dealing with stress.  It's why I left my old job a few years ago and started to exercise in order to release the mountain of stress from being in an unpleasant situation.  I'm not pleasant when my stress level is up and I think everyone prefers the reduced stress life so much better.

My weekend was good and 100 times better than the last!  A monumental step in the right direction.  I was able to do some swimming for the NovGTD challenge.  I know that I can't possibly reach my goal but I am still going to give it a decent effort.  It feels great to be in the pool and truly not thinking or dealing with anything that happens outside of the water.  But boy, is it tiring.  I remember being a kid and passing out after swimming ALL day.  How do I get that energy back?  :P  

My birthday is next week.  I'm not all that excited.  I used to love to celebrate it but now it seems like just another day.  I took all week off because I don't think anyone should work on their birthday, plus Turkey Day gives me two holiday days!!  More bang for the vacation buck, lol!  I am counting on the drama-free zone extending into next week too!  Hopefully, the karma Gods are listening.  

Enjoy your day! 


  1. Hope you can stay in your Drama Free Zone for a good long while! :)

  2. I like the idea of taking your birthday off. I have one coming up as well...I may just have to borrow that idea! I hope the rest of your week is drama free. xo
