Today was the first day in a while that I actually felt relaxed. I didn’t stress over the homework I need to finish or the housework or the dog or what plans I had or didn’t have for the weekend. Of course, all of those things were on my mind, but I didn’t have the familiar knot in my stomach that I’ve had for the last six weeks. Whatever the reason, it was a nice break. I’m thankful for that and for the lovely evening tonight that included a vacuum demonstration, puppy play time, a Dr. Who repeat, Chinese take out and time cleaning up the piles of papers in my office. I’m actually using my office computer tonight for the first time in weeks. I hope tomorrow follows in similar fashion.
