Yesterday I felt the need to get my big pile of washed, dried, and piled high laundry folded and put away. Instead of spending 5 minutes a morning digging through the pile for the specific item I needed, I wanted to get the job done. So, I made an executive business decision and cancelled my first appointment for the day. I clean this house weekly and felt they would be fine. She was great when I cancelled. No problem.
In a 3 hour period with breaks of course, I got 1/2 the mountain of laundry folded and put away. This also included making certain I didn't step or trip on my helper: little Fritzi. I also had TT duties during this time: toss the toy! Fritzi kept on bringing her toys to me, placing them near by - or not! and waiting near by with her tail wagging waiting for the toy to be thrown. Oh the joys of being a Katmomma! LOL
When I got to my 2nd scheduled client of the day, my BFF in Boise, Jen called. Her DH is my doctor and they refuse payment from me. I pay them back by doing other things for them. Sometimes I sneak in extra cleaning at their house, most of the time I don't charge them full price. They are always very appreciative.
Jen's doctor DH owns his own clinic. Their cleaning service is not doing their job. I noticed when I was there for an allergy shot. Jen and I are getting together Friday morning to discuss me taking the job over. This is my dilemma: I am more than happy for the work and the money. I am also gung ho on helping out friends. It would involve me working in the wee hours of the morning twice a week thou. Can my body take it at this time? Will I take the job on, do fine for awhile and then feel badly if and when I decide to quit?
Keeping in mind that I am now a turtle, not a NINJA turtle, I am debating what to do here. I called my dear doctor and friend in Sacramento. He is the one that is coaching me on my program. We discussed all the factors. He advised me to think it over, go check out the job, sleep on it and then give my answer. If I decide to do it I will need to change things up a bit.
I'd have to come home the day before my early morning cleaning job at the clinic, and go straight to bed and rest up. That would be Monday night for Tuesday early morning work. The other day is Saturday and that isn't a problem because my schedule isn't so packed. I would also need to somehow make my smoothie and juice up the nights before the early morning clinic cleanings. It takes about 1 1/2 hrs so actually I'd be going to bed on Mondays and Fridays at about the same time I am now.
I'd also have to skip my mall exercise on Tuesday mornings. I could do a one miler Leslie Sansone DVD. I'd really have to get my rear in gear.
I would really have to focus, which is part of my problem and one of my goals on this program.
I would have to commit full board to it and I want to do it but I don't want it to effect my health or my program.
It's interesting to see this come up on the 3rd day of my program. It can be something that ultimately helps me or my demise.
What's a young turtle to do? Hmmm decisions, decisions!
Sorry for no pictures today. Spark is having problems.
Thanks for your support on this slow and methodical journey.
Spell Check is out of commission too! LOL
