I am not much of a beer girl, but I do have a soft spot for Sam Adams Light. It’s one of the best light beers, in my opinion, on the market. I’m more of a gin and tonic sort of gal 🙂
Today and this week have been going by so slowly and have been trying. K and I have been working with two VW dealerships and VW corporate on his car and we FINALLY got it all worked out. We have come to a point where we don’t feel that we are getting ripped off. We’re so happy with the two people, one at each dealership, that we are going to get them a gift. They have been beyond kind.
Although this week has been tough, it has not been depressing. I am really proud of myself actually. We’ve had a few illnesses in the office and I’ve been doing great at not constantly worrying about catching it. I have told myself, so what if I get a cold? I’ve had them before and it will NOT be the end of the world. I have been so much calmer and really just tried to smile more, even when I was feeling a little stressed. I have also tried to cut back on the number of times I go to wash my hands. I feel a lot less anxiety afterward, even if initially the anxiety is pretty heightened.
I’ve had a great week with my coworkers. We’ve had a lot of laughs and I feel closer to them for some reason. I don’t want to jinx it, but I love going to work! I feel I have a purpose and place there and it makes it 10 x better to feel comfortable there too. That’s why I’ve been working on some of the work-induced anxiety that I experience. I’ve just tried to be nicer in general and not grouchy to anyone. I’ve been working hard to do this at work and at home and I notice a difference in my anxiety and happiness. Smiling and being genuinely nice works! Who knew 😉
Regardless, it’s been a busy week for K and I, with work, the car, going back to school, and an endless stream of birthdays (dad, brother, K). I’m just glad everything seems to be turning out for the better.
Also, something great for a long, tiring day is a Chester burrito.
As always, thank you for reading.
