Work gives me the pouts.

That's it, it's official. I hate working. Especially when it makes me stressed. Typically, I pride myself on leaving my work at work. Not the case anymore. At my job I have a clear "busy season" and it punched me right in the babymaker.

On top of it all, I've been really sick. I don't want to alarm you out there, but I went to the ER on Sunday with serious abdominal pain. It ended up being a minor and treatable infection on my insides, but I can't seem to hit my stride again this week. Because of the sickness and medicine I can't exercise or have any wine. Since I can't exercise, I don't want to eat too many chocolatey treats. These three things are my typical go-tos for de-stressing myself.  Talk about a vicious cycle. ACK!

All in all, I'm trying to find my zen place and it's harder than usual. I've been using New Jersey-centric television: Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion, Jersey Shore and Jerseylicious. There's a certain escapism with watching trash television that really can't be described. And for some reason, the citizens of the fair state of New Jersey deliver a particularly potent brand of it.  Thank the heavens for New Jersey.

As another coping mechanism, I've been nesting in my new office. I figure If I'm going to be spending more time here, I better get comfy.  I've ordered a few things, but to get the ball rolling, I bought this little item:

Keep Calm and Carry On. That I will do. Or try.

Hopefully next week brings more bloggy juiciness.
