My brain has been a bag of squirrels today. It keeps straying into uncomfortable territory and my survival instincts keep pushing me towards anything I can use to distract myself. Can't remember where I heard this, but there's some proverb that goes, "If you're washing your hands, just wash your hands." I'm about to try "just making dinner" instead of using a podcast to check out during the process like I usually do. Here's hoping that will corral the squirrels.
