Long Time No Post…..
November 20, 2008
Remember last year when I posted here nearly every day? Well, every day that I worked anyways. Know why? Because I had absolutely nothing to do at my job. It was at a construction office, and cold weather really slowed things down. Back then, work was where I updated my blog (and checked the blogs of others) balanced my checkbook, Christmas shopped, made my anal retentive Christmas gift spreadsheet, made my shopping list, tyed and copied recipes for my cookbook that I gave to friends and family last year as a gift, scoped out black Friday deals online and planned my strategy for shopping, and completed the entire process of sending out Christmas cards. Such the model employee, I was.
My how a year changes things. This year finds me paying for the workplace sins of my past. Now I’m working 8 plus hours a day, 6 days a week, and working hard, with no sign of any relief anytime in the near future. I’m way more fulfilled now, but I do wish I had time with the family, and to write those pesky receipts in the checkbook.
Oh, and if you’re expecting a Christmas card from me, look for it in mid-February, when I get my one week “vacation”.
