Is it Friday yet?


After a two week break, I headed back to my day job (as a social worker) this week. It's fairly typical, after such a break, to feel completely overwhelmed with my job. Every day I come home feeling more tired and completely drained.  Sometimes it's hard listening to people's stories.  Trying to sort out how I can help make things better is the overwhelming part.

It's not helping that I'm starting to get a cold and even worse, that the temps here are hovering around zero (lower with windchill). The roads are a mess. I hate driving in the winter. It stresses me out. I can feel the tension in my body. Today there was a mini-storm. On my way to work I saw a big SUV that had hit an icy spot, went up on the median and knocked down a light pole. I am thankful to have make it home safely.

I had hoped to make it over to the studio one night this week, but I don't think it's happening. I am going to nurse this cold tonight. 

One more day of work and then I'll be ready for the weekend.

And my studio.

Just a few more hours. And I know the feeling, it's like every meeting and every crisis was put off until "after the 1st".
