This week was a rough one. It seemed to drag on forever, I had restless sleep nearly every night and my anxiety was off the charts for a variety of reasons related to both personal and professional matters. Tears were involved (this is rare for me) and I’m not kidding when I say I had a whole crop of new gray hairs sprout. Needless to say, I’m very happy it is Friday and I’m looking forward to a low key weekend and some time off next week!
WHAT I DID THIS WEEK:
- Indulged with a much needed massage at my favorite spot.
- Got to taste test the newest Red Bull flavor – coconut berry – and it was so summery and delicious. (My friend works for the brand and was in from LA!) while getting my nails done at Paintbox.
- Had some good meetings and got tons done at The Wing.
- Did a lot of planning for next week’s trip – officially SO excited! It’s a place that’s been on my bucket list for many years.
