The blog has been quiet this last week due to work. The second to last part of a 3 year-long project occurred the weekend of September 24th. That resulted in a 60 hour work week, which I freely admit I am to freaking old for. Or maybe not. This week is vacation. Kind of.
The long work week wasn’t too bad, but the problem is that I am not that person any more. Killing myself for work isn’t fulfilling any longer. I still get a feeling of satisfaction by helping people, but I don’t appreciate being the contact for all issues because I am single and don’t have kids. The other factor is I don’t use work to prove my value as a human being. It is just a job. It pays my bills and allows me to support my family. I no longer live for it.
This is the week of my “kind of vacation”. Every year I have a week in which I bring my mother to New Jersey to visit her family and friends. It is a ton of running around as I accompany mom on most of her outings. It is actually a rather exhausting week for me. The upside is that this time I get to see my sister Neece and cousin Boop. I can’t wait to spend quality time with both of them.
Last week and this week will end up in the busy column and that is okay. I am not going to resent them, but am going to go with the flow. There won’t be a lot of computer time as I need a break. I need to read, write and relax while I can. This year has been busy and I’m tired. So the next couple days my job is to regroup.
Peace and blessings my sweets.
