I learned a new word last week: EUSTRESS
Definitions of eustress on the Web:
- Eustress is defined in the model of Richard Lazarus (1974) as stress that is healthy or gives one a feeling of fulfillment.
- A healthful, stimulating kind and level of stress
- A positive form of stress that helps us to perform, and is usually experienced when we are going through happy events like a graduation, a wedding ...
- a type of stress that results in a positive outcome.
- Refers to happy or pleasant events under which health and performance improve even as stress increases.
The school year is just about over. The kids take their last final on Wednesday, my grades are due by 3pm, and I do all of my check-out stuff on Friday.
Monday, June 22, I leave for Korea. My suitcase is currently full of sweaters, so I need to figure out where to put those in order to get started with my packing.
Ramona has been pretty good, although she's liking her crate less and less. She cries a lot when she's in there, but we need to keep her there until she fully adjusts to the house. We're trying to figure out what food is best for her. We had her on Evo, but her stomach didn't take to it too well, and she started taking longer and longer to eat it, so we've switched back to Canidae. We're also mixing in a little bit of AvoDerm to help with digestion.
And then there's the wedding to plan. Eric wants it fancy; I want casual. So, we've compromised. He's doing the planning. Much less stress for me!
I can't wait for Korea... but really, I'm looking forward to August!
