No truer words spoken, at least in my world anyway. 2010 was a whirlwind, busy, crazy year for me. Let me just say that I had to choose my battles and decide what my priorities were when it came to my precious down time. Geez, I thought when you got older things were suppose to slow down. NOT! I must be a glutton for punishment. In January 2010 I interviewed for a promotion and got the promotion. Yippee. “I am loving this job.” In April 2010, another opportunity for another promotion came along. I say to myself…”Self, you might as well go for it, you will still be doing the same job with a few more responsibilities and it is more money. After all retirement is right around the corner." Yes, I got the promotion. There is an old saying…”be careful what you wish for.”
Let's just say between working longer hours at the office, traveling for work and running a business, along with the usual everyday demands I was a tired girl on the verge of a meltdown. At the end of 2010 I guess you could call it an epiphany but I knew I had to get a grip and stop the craziness. Well I can't stop all of the daily demands but I can certainly change the way I looked at things. I did take some time off during the holidays and had that proverbial long talk with myself. I am now back on track.
I missed everyone terribly and the fact that I became racked with guilt about not visitng and not posting did not help matters any (well I did visit occasionally but did not leave any comments). I could not bring myself to even post anything because I knew they would only be whiny posts and I was not going to do that! Although we know the occasional "whining" is allowed (wink, wink). My new rules are: Try to post at least once a week (I just can't do it everyday. Besides I really don't have that much to talk about. LOL!) and to visit my blog friends 2-3 times a week. Afterall, YOU are my inspiration and breath of fresh air. You keep me sane. You always have.
Hugs and much love, Sue
