distress and de-stress

i spent two weeks being a mess. a great big honking mess.

i had a headache that started at my eyebrows, went back, up, down, and spread out into my shoulders.  it lasted for three days.

i had a digestive system that was in knots.  and knots.  and knots.

i blame the election.  i get nervous about things, and i was beyond nervous about that. 
i blame conferences.  i get nervous about things.  and i was a normal amount of nervous about that.

in the middle of the mess, i took half a day off work for hubby's birthday.  that was nice.  we had starbucks and ate cupcakes.  he opened presents.  i made tacos, because that's what he loves the most.

then the election happened.  and i felt like i could breathe again.  and my headache went away.  so that was good.

then conferences happened.  (they started the day after the election.  who planned that?)  and they went well.  and that was good.

my digestive system started to unknot itself.  (that usually takes awhile, but still.  it's happening.)

and then one of hubby's dreams came true (okay, he made it come true, but still...) and everyone came together on a saturday afternoon to play flag football.  we called it footballpalooza 2012.  and that was really good.

and now?

haul out the holly.

the holidays are on their way.

and that is wonderful.

you capture

Aww, I'm sorry you were feeling so unwell...but I'm glad you're feeling better!

I was an anger ball yesterday. Actually, I've been an anger ball for several days. But yesterday was pretty bad. And then I went for a run. And despite the fact that I haven't run since before we went to the States, and my knee was whining about it, I ran for longer than I usually do. (Okay, maybe that last 15 minutes was mostly walking.) But I wasn't an anger ball anymore. In fact, one could say I've actually been in a *good* mood since then.

Amazing how that works.
