Weekend Assignment: Frazzled! How Do You De-Stress?

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

Well, I hope I'm not to late with this one.

How do you de-stress when you're feeling frazzled?

Well, I have several options. One is my weekly bowling. That's my big stress-buster. The other is to take off and do something else - which I'm about to do right now.

I'm digging back into the bio of Queen Victoria I bought last week. In my copious free time I'm supposed to be working on a book. I've a feeling I'll end up at the funny farm, first.

These last few weeks have been particularly busy. I've had a push with a couple of projects, one of which I thought I was going to wrap up a couple of weeks ago. Tomorrow, perhaps, but I won't hold my breath. We've also had a little pet intrigue this week. The cats are fine it's one of their entertainment centers the fish tank that's been the problem. The light fixture blew out. And the light fixture is integrated with a filter system that's been discontinued for several years. Thanks to a local aquarium shop we repaired it with the fishy equivalent of chewing gum and bailing wire a few years ago, but now the fileter part is also leaking. So, it was off to buy new parts. Did that, cleaned the tank, stressed the fish to the point where I thought I we might lose them. They've bounced back, so I'm thinking about getting a few new community fish tomorrow.

So yeah, nothing going on here. Nothing at all.

Extra Credit: The Weekend Assignment may soon have a co-host. That okay with everyone?

Hey, that's what it takes to get the job done sometimes. No problems with me.
