Pamper Yourself

I'm feeling kind of sick.  With a sore throat and a headache.

I'm tired, because my sick daughter has kept me up late and gotten up crazy early for the past few days.

I'm trying to set up some interviews down in GA.  I'm sending out resumes to all the really cool places I'd love to work in the ATL.  I'm searching job sites after dinner until bedtime each day.  It's not great fun.

I'm behind on laundry (Have I mentioned laundry is my nemesis?).

I did cook and do the dishes tonight, so that's a plus.

I had about 300 e-mails and phone messages from recruiters today because a few days ago, I thought it might be neat to see what options there are in travel therapy jobs. (BTW,  If I ever get this curious inkling again, tear the laptop from my hands and make me go to bed instead.)

So, all that is to say that I'm feeling a little. bit.  o. ver. whelmed.

So, tonight, I did what I always do when I'm overwhelmed.  (Just ask my college roommate.  You should've seen the artistic projects I took on during finals weeks.)  I took a break from reality, pampered myself, and finished a good book.  Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, to be exact.

And now, I feel much better.   Or at least not super stressed.  The messages and e-mails (oh, and laundry, too!) will still be there tomorrow, and maybe I'll be in a better place to dive into the things that must be done.

How do you deal with life when you're overwhelmed?
