But it was *wonderful*. It had all the elements of Master Living: meaningful activity (getting that bit of cleaning and laundry done), exercise (run on Saturday, walk and swim on Sunday), good nutrition, and companionship (visit from son). What more could I want of a weekend? Another day would be nice.
This made me think of what I would want in my "ideal" job. A 32 hour week would be about perfect... but it would have to have the same kind of creative side my current one has. Maybe "set my own deadlines, reasonable ones that don't require OT". The ususal benefits... health insurance and a paycheck that covers the bills and gives me "play" money to support my athletic outings... and enough vacation time to go do them. Oh, and I only want this job for about ten years, after which I'd want to move on to "other things". Riiiight... dream on.
Don't get me wrong... I love my work. Just would prefer it not to be quite so urgent and pressured as it is this year!
Part of what got me thinking about the ideal job has to be a conversation I had with my son yesterday about his future plans. He's still deciding about back to school in September.
That said, today's pep talk reminders:
* Drink your water.
* Savor the healthy things you put in the bag.
* GO TO RECESS when it's time to do so!
* And leave on time! It will still be there tomorrow.
LIFE is good. Spark on, my friends!
