Planning, Stress, AWOL, and a little Red Wine. - the little lioness

Planning, Stress, AWOL, and a little Red Wine.

The organisation of my trip to Germany is taking shape, finally. We have flights to and from Vienna, I have train tickets for once we’re back in Frankfurt to Cologne, Hamburg and Berlin, and have started sorting out / looking at accommodation.

Getting there.

Still need to get back to Frankfurt from Berlin, but that will be with Rish, so we need to organise that one together. And harass friends about Vienna :p

I’ve enrolled in a “Stress Containment” course, which is running over the Thursday nights in May, through the Women’s Information and Referral Centre. I can tell that I’m not exactly managing my stress well at the moment, and I’m hoping that it will give me strategies to improve my well being, and general awesomeness. To learn to breathe. We were doing a mindfulness exercise, and it’s amazing how scattered my brain can be!

I have a lot to do over the next few weeks (in 3 weeks I’ll be on the plane to Germany!)… There’s one more essay to submit on the 14th, a conference in Melbourne from the 16th – 19th, I fly back to Canberra on the 20th… I have this course I’m doing. And life. And then work, to make sure I have everything in order in case someone calls wanting something NOW. *heh* So I may be absent. But, I still love you!

I’m off to cook up a pot of bolognese sauce… lamb mince, fresh basil, and a little red wine, among others… noms.

    I’m glad you’re taking the time to put yourself first :) hopefully you’ll get some good strategies to avoid stress-fests (and can you share them??)

    That course sounds like a really good idea – something I should probably look into, too! I’ve had help with mindfulness before and I find it really hard. Probably should keep practising it…

    Very excited that you’re going to Cologne – I would have loved to get there, but couldn’t make the itinerary work. Make sure to tell us all about it! :)

    You think I WON’T tell you about it? ;)
