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!!!
