The newsroom was all swirly yesterday. That's code for stressful, which is also code for fun (post-stress.)
But before I worked much longer yesterday than I had planned or anticipated, and before I got all worked up and then decompressed, I took advantage of a quiet morning with my dog. And a river.
It works well.
Swimming is her favorite form of exercise and watching her swim is one of my favorite forms of relaxation.
