Frazzled

As much as I try not to let it get to me, the city environment really gets to me. This has been the first holiday period where I didn't actually get the chance to go away not even for a day...and it's starting to become obvious. I haven't managed to unwind and get relaxed...only to be looking down the barrel of another hectic semester...in a way I will be glad to get back to routine and not let my mind 'hyperventilate' so to speak lol. I'm looking at the week ahead though and wondering...is there any way I can escape to the mountains, or SOMETHING, even if it's just for a day of peace? Or will I have to make do with a quick trip to the beach again...it seems like despite all the time-I guess cos I was sick for most of it-I didn't actually get too much done AT ALL! I think it would have been more effective to actually take a real holiday away and actually rest and rejuvenate. Very important for me actually...ARGHHHHHHHHH.

Maybe I can make do with a massage, or several...I'm such a hopeless city slicker.

I feel like this too.. Like I have a few great days only to stare down the barrel of a whole other week of work. Where are our millions of dollars?

I. am. not jealous. heh
I'll be happy at home w/ my kids and routine of trying to catch a nap while having to get up and yell at the kids. Will not envy you your schoolwork.
Have fun, though.

You are right - sometimes removing yourself from your familiar surroundings is the only way to get some rest. Even just one night away can rejuvenate - and that's do-able on the weekend. Maybe find yourself a little hideaway?

Sorry to here you are frazzled Macs. It was a nice day today though wasn't it. (weather wise) And tomorrow will be even warmer.
Take yourself off to the beach and let your worries drift away out to sea.
BTW what beach do you go to? I love Freshwater and Coogee.

What did you actually want to 'get done' in your holidays? The past is the past. Put a smile on your face tomorrow and unwind and relax.

Get rid of those negative thoughts.

Take care mate.
