Relief at Work and a Mini Vacation

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

I realize that I created unnecessary pressure for myself at work. Now that I officially started the new job, I still have two assignments from the old job. So, nothing really has changed. Yet I feel like an incredible weight has been lifted! I guess something has changed. I'm able to get out of meetings that were eating up about 1/3 of my week. Imagine the capacity I got out of that! No wonder the pressure is gone! I now have time to get it all done!

I rested Monday and Tuesday. I mean, really rested! I was in bed by 6 or 7 both nights. It's messing with my sleep schedule, but I'm on vacation until Tuesday after today. Whee! It's been a long time since I had consecutive days off. What's the occasion? My mother in law is visiting. Apprehensive excitement probably explains how I feel about her visit. She knows about my daughter's engagement, so I'm sure that topic is unavoidable. My husband has his own opinions on that, which could make for some interesting debate. I am Switzerland. I gave my daughter my candid opinion. I haven't totally given up on trying to talk her into an extended engagement. But now that I've said my piece, I support her and hope all her choices bring happiness.
Sooo...I can't wait to see Grandma Thelma. She's 82! I hope to be as active as her at that age. Praying for minimal fireworks this week!!
