Last week was extremely stressful for me. Particularly at work. I really don't remember much stress at home, but work was enough to nearly knock me out.
So far this week isn't looking much better, unfortunately.
Despite the stress and the quickly approaching deadlines, I survived.
Friday night I met friends (who I had not seen in several months) for dinner. It was rejuvenating. I decided to devote my weekend to rejuvenating my spirit.
So, I went to Best Buy and purchased Guitar Hero. Ok, so I really succumbed to peer pressure of a friend who has been singing Guitar Hero praises. Plus the $40 price tag didn't look too bad for a video game that even comes with a guitar. Just my way of stimulating the economy.
I brought the new purchase home and boy was the husband thrilled! We played several times over the weekend. I am now addicted.
So is the rest of the family.
Hoss has been dancing to the songs (jumping on the couch) and seranading us with the songs, "Slow Ride" and "Mississippi Queen."
I don't know if it was the game which lifted my spirits or if it was the time spent with my little family laughing and enjoying life, not caring about the stresses of the world outside our front door.
Whatever it was, it worked.
I'm a new woman.
At least right now.
