This is the first Friday evening of the last several where I've felt calm and relaxed and feeling like the weekend will be ok.
The last few weekends have, in themselves, been ok - but the pressure of the preceding week has, on those occasions, left me tired and grumpy on Friday evening, waking early Saturday morning, and only starting to feel the benefit of a break from work when it's almost time to go back.
I don't wish to tempt fate, but the crisis points that have been a real challenge of late seem to be lessening. I'm not making any assumptions about what next week will bring, but I'm not feeling burdened by the residue of the (working) week that I've just left behind.
Which may leave me better prepared should there be any more nightmares.
But right now, I'm feeling lighter, and that's enough.
Update - Well, not really an update, but I should add: have a good weekend, all.
