Calming the Stress, Photo 28
A guild mate of mine got engaged to his long-time girlfriend. They are wonderful people and parents to a trio of very, very cute kittens. I had to send a card. I also had to be out in the field, yet again. So, I combined the work with the play and ran by a Target store to get a card. The thought crossed my mind that Target sells carbonated beverages and having some of those wouldn't make the long hours and the travel go away, but it would make them easier to bear.
To my surprise, there was a sale. You had to buy 5, but even the regular price in this Target was cheaper than the regular price in the Target near me. Although I prefer cans or bottles for portability, one must always be open to price, particularly on soda. You can see I dove into that Dr Pepper as soon as I got home.
Now, it hasn't made the travel any less of a bear or eased the knowledge that I will be working overtime through the rest of the month to get everything done. But I am grateful for ice cold beverages in the fridge for those days I stagger home and just want to collapse.
Beverage: Scottish Breakfast tea
