Work stress

After 10 consecutive days of cooking dinner, I didn’t cook tonight.  I didn’t even eat tonight.  I screwed up.  I had a teriyaki stir fry on the menu, which requires chicken, and we don’t have anymore chicken!  Kelly got away with leftovers, but I just skipped dinner.  I was busy working on a CSS style sheet for a new site design.

Another ridiculously busy day–one of those days that flies by because I’m so focused on my work.  The world around me fades away.  I didn’t even break for lunch today, but sucked down my sandwich during a meeting.  This type of work is mentally draining and I’ve been coming home and avoiding both reading and writing.  I want to do both, but I can’t get the focus I need.

I felt the baby kicking again last night, which always makes me feel better.  Kelly has been working on a wedding photo album and she’s done a terrific job.  Kelly and the baby are my happy thoughts during these hectic days.

NEW SCIENTIST arrived in the mail and I am once again 2 weeks behind.  Plus I’m still an issue behind on SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN.

Another draining day is in the works for tomorrow.  Mentally, I’m not planning on getting up at 4 am, but we’ll see how things go.
