Worked from home today, and while that’s generally a relaxing thing… I found myself feeling stressed out with the upcoming holidays. Lots of things to get done, and the day was getting the better of me.
In most cases, the holidays should be a time for relaxing. But I kept feeling the opposite. Reminded me about how I was, prior to our trip to Portland, a few months ago.
Just feels like I need to shake my shoulders more or something, because there just feels like something lingering overhead that I can’t get away from. There’s a sound of a ticking clock in my head, and some days I can ignore it and other days… it’s a little louder than I’d like.
