Sometimes it takes a break from reality to put things into perspective, to realize that the world will not end if you have to do x, to realize that life really is good. Today was my first day back to work since before Christmas. Z and I did a whirlwind holiday season – first in Texarkana with my family (4 hour round trip) and then in St. Augustine with his family (roughly 30 hour round trip). Then, we went on a much belated honeymoon to Disney World. We caught colds on our last day at Disney. We visited the beach while 9 inches of snow fell on Little Rock (our home).
All the stress in my body has melted into a puddle of happiness.
