I have been worried and stressed and a bit stretched thin in work lately. A lot has been going on and my normal teaching load basically doubled over night. Between some family concerns and some work concerns, my mind has been racing again when I am trying to sleep. Today I decided I am going to take the afternoon, just me, relax with kittens, eat pre made ham rolls for dinner and relax. I may even go soak in the hot tub. Tonight, there will be no work, no number crunching, grading or planning. Just breathing. I am going to make an effort to sit quietly and enjoy my evening.
