A Week of Good Behavior
- What’s the dumbest thing you did this week?
Allowing myself to get drawn into the Friday Bitch-fest at work yesterday. Everyone's crabby, one person was a complete jerk all week, and it's frantically busy right now with programming. I need to go back to "stay the hell out of the emotional quagmire" mode I've been in fairly successfully all winter.
- In what way did you save yourself time or energy this week?
I didn't park at the hospital for two days waiting on Beast. Actually, despite my answer to #1, I think this week I handled myself very well. For the first time in awhile, I feel pretty good about things.
- How were you wasteful of personal and natural resources this week?
The emotional-eating monster reared up, but in clearly identifiable mode. I went through an awful lot of gas driving hither and yon. I'm sure there are other things but they're less concrete.
- When this week did you take advantage of the opportunity to keep your mouth shut?
Yesterday: not nearly enough! Monday and Tuesday, pretty much every minute of both days!! "Does it need to be said?" Does it need to be said by me? Can I say it kindly?" And, of course, walking away from horrible behavior online after the shooting; I refused to get involved in evil comment-strings.
- In what way this week were you blessed or fortunate?
Right now, it seems that Beast has made some positive, long-term healthy decisions. I (re)discovered how many wonderful friends I have who back me (us) up. Work was mostly interesting and I didn't get overly wrapped up in the drama--till yesterday, and even then not like I used to. The weather has been OUTSTANDING!! I'm really more blessed than I have a right to be.
