I’m so glad I took last week with ML. Filling up the emotional bank account with good stuff has definitely been great.
ML and I have different interests and due to our work schedules we often take separate vacations. When we do take vacation together we often have big plans: renovations, road trips, etc. It was nice to spend time together yet apart.
We did things together but also enjoyed our own interests in different rooms. It was a bit of a relief to find out we could do it without one of us feeling neglected.
It was a great lesson! Here are a few more to help me maintain my calm:
- Reinstitute morning tea with Bunny. The one on one cuddles does us both a world of good
- I’ve got loads of things that relax me; aim to do more than binge watch Netflix with ML on an evening
- The doodling helped me in a way that lists don’t… Maybe add it to my work format
- I’m going to keep up the doodling journal but maybe adjust it to weekly “bank deposits” rather than the daily ones I’ve been posting
Here’s to a great week back at work!
Thanks so much for all your tips and encouragement!
