I’ve missed a couple of weeks … I took a little vacation to get my head mellow again. Caregiving is a stressful job and one that I’ve been involved with at some level for 14 years and full time for the past 8 … my last break was 3 years ago. I had a lot of fun in the Puget Sound area of Washington State that included going out for an 8 hour whale watching tour in and around the San Juan Islands. Eight glorious hours in my ultimate happy place … on the water – bring on the chop!
Since returning to work from my vacation whenever I start feeling stressed I just picture myself out on the waters of the Puget Sound … feeling the breeze and the spray of water breaking across the bow of the boat.
So, I’m back at it and ready to get back into the swing of things.
