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!

This is a marathon, not a sprint.
