I can’t deny that the last weeks have been rough! Work on the one hand was intense but I can handle this. The thing that made it hard to cope was the emotional pressure we were under. I told you how bad things looked with the two grandmas and sadly after a few ups and downs both passed away last week. So next to everything that’s going on we have to cope with our grief and travel through half Germany to attend the funerals. So one sad weekend is to come but today I won’t think about it!
Today I am trying to release a bit of my stress by doing all I want just for myself out loud!
First thing this morning I went to Crossfit and had a really good workout. We did some skills training, a bit of gymnastics and ended the hour with a WOD were we got to do ball slams. Yes this is exactly what it sounds like. You rise a ball of 12kg over your head and slam it back to the ground as hard as you can. We did this 60 times in total. Yes my body hurts a little but it felt good to slam out all the pressure!
I had a minor break-through at work yesterday with an article I am working on and I am very keen to keep working on it. Besides that I have some time-consuming other things to do I just work on this today. It’s fun at least and the shit stuff will still be here tomorrow for sure!
My lunch is awesome! Yesterday I took some time in the kitchen and made good, healthy food from the scratch. Exactly what I need at the moment. Lunch leftovers for me and the husband! And when I ate my lunch I will go for a short walk around the building because a bit of fresh air will do me right! And probably I’ll call my husband because I love to speak to him during the day.
I am going to work for 6 hours today and not a single minute longer. Because when I go home after 6 hours I can go to the groceries before they close (German shop opening times are just ridiculous!), I can make a nice dinner and I can make some on-the-road snacks for the weekend.
When I come home I will do a bit of sweet nothingness first! Maybe I’ll take a bath, maybe I’ll read a good book, maybe I’ll pour me a glass of wine. And to be honest I am already picturing me with a glass of wine and my Harry Potter book in a hot bubble bath!
I will cook something nice and not time-consuming and then I will have a nice conversation with my husband about all the fun stuff that still exists in our lives even when we can’t remember quite well at the moment.
After dinner we will catch up on the latest episode of Castle. And most probably I will indulge in a second glass of wine because well I can and it gives me a good feeling that I can find content in something so simple. Most probably I will crash on the couch soon after at approximately 10 pm.
Did I forget something vital on my list?
Oh did I mention that I intend to end the last chocolate easter bunnie’s life tonight, too?
