The move sounds exhausting, but at least it was activity-induced exhaustion. To me, that always makes it a little more tolerable, because you're getting some benefit. What I really hate is the mental exhaustion that can happen from work/worry/whatever. Equally draining, with no physical benefits. That's something I'm really trying to work on. So far, without much success, but...
More snow here last night. I am really crossing my fingers that this week will be the last week of snow, and I can get my bike out starting this weekend or next week!
Our move at work last weekend was exhausting. This is our seventh office move in 19 years. If I didn't beg one of the attorneys to come in an help supervise the movers on Saturday, I would have been there by myself because everyone else was "too busy" or "I've got other things to do". What about me!?!??!!?!? I think I've got everything settled but my new cubicle. I went from an office with six two drawer file cabinets, three huge desk drawers and a ledge to one two drawer and one three drawer cabinet attached under the desk. It's been an experience. I put on lots of steps over the last week (which I can log in) but I'm not sure how to log in the moving of furniture, boxes, etc.
Now hopefully, I can get my mind back in a better frame of mind. Now if the weather would cooperate ... flooding yesterday, snow today. I called in yesterday because the train underpass was flooding and I didn't feel like walking through ankle deep water to get to the train. I figured ten days in a row was enough. So I worked for a bit at home yesterday, today and tomorrow but since I didn't know I wasn't going in yesterday I didn't bring anything home which limits what I can do. Right now I don't care, on Monday I will. I need a break.
I'm going to try to focus more on me instead of everyone else. Not sure how that's going to work out with these crazy hours and getting home late. But I need to get back into the swing of things and really get back to the right frame of mind. Maybe with the sun shining and warmer weather. Ok, maybe not this week since we've been below normal temps and rain for the last 5 days and the next week.

I absolutely must get caught up with my work this spring, or at least make big strides in that respect. I've been working on it, so haven't been on SP as much. But, I've got a long way to go. I'm still doing good with my maintenance and fitness training, so I'll keep on doing what I've been doing in that regard.
