Oh Maw, thank you! It is so comforting to be understood! I AM going to ink in my own time and then protect it.

emoticon Leslie! As a former CPA I can sure relate. It still amazes me when things are planned during tax season. Extreme self-care sounds like the way to go. Be sure to put it in your calendar - in ink! - so you can honestly say that you have other commitments when someone wants you do to do something when it's "your" time.

Hi all, I'm checking in late too - I worked so hard and fast today on a lot of different things and it fried my brain. I feel like if ONE more person needs or wants anything from me I will break.

This evening a good friend texted me to find out what time I would be coming to her scrapbooking retreat. Me, being the careful planner that I am, texted back to find out what weekend it was. Her reply? Now. Oh %$#@#. Told her I'm working all weekend and can't go and haven't heard back from her. I'm sure she's disappointed, but I'm so frustrated I want to scream. Hasn't anyone in my life heard me?? New job in an unstructured, developing organization and I kept ALL my clients and have to finish out their bookkeeping so they can file their tax returns - I am probably going to be working every weekend until 4/15!! Why do my dear friends listen, walk away, and then expect me to do something else???

Sorry to rant - I'm tired and I do not want to let anyone down, but all I can see is how much I keep letting myself down by trying to keep everyone else happy. I should have told her not to count on me at all, but she also failed to email me a retreat schedule and I doubt she has realized that...

Okay, I'm done ranting and wailing! LOL I did errands after work and then walked the boys. Now they are fed and I had a cheeseburger with sea salt and it was so good I licked the plate! Yup, I did. Now I am having an adult beverage and thinking about how soon I can go to bed.

I think my post here has highlighted what my March Madness Challenge will be: Extreme Self-Care!!!

It was a good day here. Baby James is already 11 months! It is spring break here, so we leave for a ski trip on Monday. It is at Jay Peek, the same place we went for Christmas and loved it. A few friends of ours are also going, so it should be fun.

Never too late to start a topic, eh?

I had a short work day yesterday and today (which meant I did 8 hours' work in 6 hours both days) but it seems to disappear on me! Was supposed to meet some friends, but I'm really tired and I'm just not up for the gossip-fest that usually ensues. Gossip makes me uncomfortable, but, just like watching a train wreck, I can't look away! Best to just chill at home tonight. Hope tomorrow I can carve out some time to think about the March challenge. I'm not sure what I'm on to next.

Have a great evening, all!

Labour is prior to, and independent of capital. Capital is only the fruit of labour, and could never have existed if labour had not first existed. Labour is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.
