Continuing stress at work has me down a little. I am trying to just focus on my work, the task at hand that I apparently need to accomplish on my own, and hopefully the gratification that will come later of a job well done. But frustration does put a dent in my demeanor and I must keep trying to take steps to reduce it.
Today that came in the form of a quick manicure at lunch and I have nails so dark a purple that they are almost black. Perfect. Hopefully this will lift my mood at least a little, and I timed my lunchtime outing so that I will have two hours away from the stress. This is good.
I dropped by Sprouts on the way home to curb the urge to drive through for a quick dinner. I ended up bringing home a premade side dish of potatoes for dinner and I'm not sure that was any better.
A quiet evening, no snacking, and lots of tea to round out the day.
