Coping Strategies...

Um, so much for that self-imposed book-buying hiatus. Today has been a stressful day for reasons that I won't go into. I don't handle stress and uncertainty very well...

So I figured I had earned a little field trip to B&N. Plus I thought I should buy the book for the up-coming "Books & Bars" meeting on Feb 11th. And a few others. I walked out with:

1. Eleanor Rigby by Douglas Coupland
2. Shampoo Planet by Douglas Coupland
3. The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff

I am hoping one of these is lighter than the last few books I've read & the one I'm currently reading! If not, I might need to go out & buy a Calvin Hobbes book or something!

At least I didn't resort to drinking a Mountain Dew, like I would have before when I was stressed! 27 days & no Mountain Dew! This might be a record!!! Although my co-worker is NOT helping and keeps saying things like, "c'mon, you deserve one!" or "just one won't hurt you!" NOT HELPING. But I'm staying strong!

I was spending far too much money at B&N so I got myself a library card. It's been much more cost efficient since I usually read 2-3 a week!
