Off Day/Vacation Day

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

I have been "off work" both yesterday and today, took them as "vacation days". Used them for an extended weekend out of town. Drove back in town last night. After actually getting back in town, made it home about two hours later (clearly I did not go straight home).

Before I left, the house was a bit of a mess, as I packed in a hurry. Didn't want to plop down in a mess, so I tried to pick up/organize a little bit before heading to bed, needed to check in with folks to let them know I made it back safely.

Then somebody (that would be me) got online and wanted to get caught up with e-mails and what not and IM-ed a friend until the wee hours and went to bed really late/early depending on how you look at it.

Got a text early this morning from a gal at work that they're moving my office today (the day I actually planned to get some rest) and I need to be all packed by 5pm today. (This move has been imminently pending for a little over a month and it's finally happening.) At that point, I hadn't gotten four hours of sleep yet. Did I mention this was the day I actually planned to get some rest? So, I made it into the office, just wanted to pack and go, but that didn't quite happen. At least there were no major catastrophes - I'll take the good news where I can when it comes to work, nowadays. After a couple of hours at work on my vacation day, I cut out of there.

I did manage to get a little bit of rest today, but it was no vacation. I'm looking forward to my next off day (Sunday - I'll be certain to be working on Saturday). No rest for the weary sometimes. Heavy sigh. I recognize I complain about work a bit, but I'm thankful for that privilege.

    After a trip, I always plan on a day at home before returning to work. Sorry you didn't get that. Good luck. I hope you like you new office space!

Darn that Mind Clutter!

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

I seem to be a victim of that darned mind clutter again!

I realize this as I have the recurring theme in my head that I need to "be still." My mind is restless, not at peace. I'm not sure that there's too much on my mind or that I'm not thinking enough about things...the right things/the things I should be focused on. Either way, my mind is restless.

Perhaps if I was either better organized or meditated or I'm not even sure, I could either fit it all in and solve the world's problems (along with wearing that gold tiara like Wonder Woman...not sure what I'd do with that lasso or invisible airplane, though. Hmmm.)

I recently spent some time with some folks who "Just Do It" so to speak. Made me feel awfully lazy. There's sooooo much more I could get done in a day with better time management. There are some overachievers like that out there in the world. I've resisted being one of them for a long time. Not sure if I'm ready to turn that corner yet or not. Been a little too comfortable with a certain amount of restfulness. I think that sounds better than lazy.

Perhaps if I put me on a schedule for my time at home, both during the work week and on weekends, I might get more done, feel more productive and then, yes, feel as if I've solved part of the world's problems - even if only my small corner of the world.

    I am the same way. I hear other people and it seems like they get so much more done than I do. I feel like I should get more done. I honestly don't know how they do it!

It's a family affair...

Monday, May 28, 2012

I'll make this brief...for me.

Visited relatives out of town this Memorial Day weekend. Exceptionally nice trip. Saw family members it's nice to see and visit. Good for the soul to visit with them. One of my cousins graduating from high school. Interesting to see other family members (her siblings) growing up!!

Many times family can be a bit frustrating, this has been a really nice trip!!



Happy Memorial Day Weekend

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Thank you to all our Veterans and their family members for the incredible sacrifices they make for the freedoms we take for granted.
