Anyway, moving on to something where I am not begging for money! Last Thursday I was offered a position which allows me to telecommute! I am super stoked about this for many reasons but I can't decide which is the best perk... getting 2 workouts done in a day, working in my pj's or workout gear, using my Keurig like it's my business, or knowing that happy hour can start at 5:01pm (just kidding! ...no but seriously..lol). I think for me, those are all stellar reasons to be so excited, but the biggest thrill, being needed. Don't get me wrong, my current position needs me, but this new position will tap my creative side, put my brain to work, and *hopefully* provide me with the job satisfaction I have been yearning for! Oh, and not having to pack a lunch, awesome. It really was a great way to kick off last weekend!
Now this week of course is the division of my job duties and everyone who was putting off things they wanted to request me to do, have been flooding in...yikes! The past few days have been full of me preparing the next person to handle my projects. It's nice though, at least now people are acknowledging how much they appreciated me, albeit would have been nice if this would have trickled in over the past *almost* 5 years, but hey - it's all good. When I worked at Vassar College, Marge used to make me homemade chocolate chip cookies, I adore her.... and loved the cookies!
So last night I set up my home office, I am beyond excited! I am one of those, once I start I can't stop until it's finished kind of people, so 8pm last night I am moving furniture and sorting through things, and getting irritated because the balance was off in the room - throwing some 'tude, moving more stuff...But I think I got it figured out...balance restored.
Friday - yay! Today I have a LIST of things to accomplish...as I can hear my hubby in my head now, 'another list, awesome.' but it is what I do, I am a list maker... I blogged about it once, so I must be official right? Well today I will finish work, hit the post office (finally getting all those packages sent!), get my hair cut, yes cut, not trimmed but lopped off! It's too long, it's getting tangled when I try to brush it - even the pick went on strike...then clean, clean, clean, so tonight at my party people don't think I don't have any free time!
Things I dream about... a maid, a nanny, a chef... that would make today go a lot smoother - don't cha think?
Long run on Sunday, hoping for 10miles, but we will see...lol The Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon (which is a 1/2, not sure what the mini is about) on the 23rd, so that is 9 days!!!
So happy weekend everyone! I hope you get to do something fabulous like spend time with your family, get some exercise, oh and relax a little too! Remember, it's all about balance...
