Even more work

So apparently yesterday was an anomaly. Today was only a twelve hour workday, but I still didn’t get home until 8:30 PM. I’m completely exhausted and I don’t know how long I can keep this up. Even though we met our “deadline” yesterday there is still a mountain of work that has to get done before next week and it feels like most of it is on my plate. I don’t know how much free time I’m going to have this weekend and I have no idea when I’ll be able to pack for DC. The Washington area had a big snowstorm last night so I’m really not looking forward to this trip. Hopefully the weather won’t be too bad. I can handle the cold (meaning, I have a very heavy coat that will keep me warm), but snow and ice aren’t my friends. Especially when driving. I would really like to spend some time with Dan this weekend since I’ll be in DC for ten days starting Monday. Too bad he’s been getting home from work even later than I have every day this week. I need to add a resolution to this year’s list – “Make more time to enjoy life.” I keep remembering the old saying – “No one ever said, ‘I wish I’d spent more time at the office.’ ” I want to spend more time with my husband! So why can’t I manage to get out of my cubicle with enough time to enjoy life after work? Sometimes being a dedicated employee can really cramp your style. It’s probably one of the reasons I’m still employed, though, so it’s not like I can slack off. Sorry for another post full of complaints. I have quite a few topics that I want to write about if only I had the time and I’m keeping a list of them in my notebook/planner. I’m seriously considering signing up for NaBloPoMo again next month because even on days like this when I can’t wait to get in my pajamas and go to bed, writing a little paragraph about my day and posting it is very therapeutic. Good night.

  1. I understand the frustration about work. I currently have a pretty good work/life balance (although I don’t love my job) and I like that. There’s a possibility of a promotion on the horizon, (which I don’t really want anyway) and I don’t think I’m going to take it because I don’t want more work in my life. :)
    Good luck finding the balance.
