I work in an industry that is closely aligned with tax laws, specifically income, gift and estate tax laws. After President Obama’s late-night fun with the auto pen, we walked in to a cacophony of 2,000 clients wanting to know what the heck was going on. Today was the single most stressful and overwhelming day since I started working there nearly two years ago.
After 8 full hours of brainstorming, editing, writing, rewriting, consulting, conferring, meeting, answering client phone calls, putting out fires, changing articles and updating content, I came home and went immediately upstairs.
I cranked the classical station and turned off the lights. It took a full 60 minutes to soften the edges of the day.
It’s been years since I took a bath, and I had forgotten that Bella is fascinated by the water. She loves to chase my toes under the water, reaching her little furry paw in after them and then shaking it vigorously.
All in all, a rather lovely ending to a decidedly unlovely day.
