Things have been insane around here with Ben taking some huge exams (it feels like we haven't seen each other in ages), my work holiday party last night (and the post-party recovery today), and the upcoming plans to move apartments (down a few doors to a unit with a garage).
Most people are able to compartmentalize their stress in some way or another. Home stress belongs in one bucket, work in another, and as long as they don't all convene, we're ok! But there always comes a time when the anxiety cup runneth over and anxiety and stress floods into everything we're experiencing. I had too much going on last week and by yesterday mid-day I wanted to go home, put a blanket over my head and just sleep for the rest of eternity. I couldn't handle the excitement/nerves/pre-holiday rush/party planning/everything going on in my life.
So that's why I've been a bit MIA, but I am back! And I am on vacation for the next week to celebrate the holidays with Ben and his family. Commence an insane amount of joy about the week of freedom I am facing. No waking up early, no stress, just pure happy. So to celebrate, I'm going to give away a sterling silver branch necklace from Blue Nile! I'm absolutely in love with mine (so dainty!) and Blue Nile was kind enough to give me another necklace to give to a reader.
