Lately I have been stressing over a few things.
The first: My DVR. This, I'm sure was invented to ease the stress of TV-Watchers. But, for me, it adds to the stress. It haunts me with unwatched shows and exponentially increasing recordings. No longer can I relax and flip channels, I have a need to clear them out!
The second: Bubble Bath. Any of you that know me, know I love myself a good bubble bath. It is my way to relax at the end of the day. Bubble bath seems to be a frivolous thing to spend money on, therefore I rarely buy it for myself. I got some for Christmas last year and I will only squeeze a tiny bit out-- and not even every week! Actually using the bubble bath makes me anxious about the fact that it's going to run out.
Both of these situations are pretty ridiculous. Two of the things intended to relieve stress in my life, have added to it in the end. But, in all honesty, if these are the types of things that stress me out, I'm doing pretty good. Life is much more stressful for many other people. I am thankful for my blessings, and bought a few bottles of bubble bath so that I will actually enjoy it!
