Oh wait, I just got back from one!?
Yep, one week, That's all it took to get back to square one.
My vacation started on a real roll. I cleared my side yard and filled 15 tall leaf bags FULL of limbs and yard waste and TWO van fulls of branches.
I sorted through all my STUFF and got rid of SO MUCH of it.
I pitched furniture and doors and old bikes and that little trampoline!
(Don't worry! Most of it was carted away by pickers!)
I worked in my garden transplanting my daisies and catmint that is now growing EVERYWHERE.
And I gathered together my art supplies and got them closer to my work space where I can begin to CREATE. I felt HAPPY and SURE about how I wanted to LIVE my LIFE. I would not let my Day Job cause me stress any longer. I would put in my time and FOCUS on my time at HOME.
I felt at PEACE.
Then I went back to work.
After several months of everyone covering for people who were gone on maternity leave, working various hours and overtime in a team effort for the good of the clinic we have been told that our hours will be cut from 40 hours to 35.
That's 10 hours off of every paycheck. Most of us work paycheck to paycheck. Those 10 hours is what pays for gas and groceries.
Oh well, I wanted to lose weight and
I wanted to have more time to work on my PASSIONS.
I have to remember that "when one door closes, a window opens" (Is that right?! or is it another door? Hmmm, anyway....)
I wish that window wasn't so damn high.
