So, every other week, I have Wednesdays and then the weekend off, working the Thursday and Friday in between. As I mentioned in my last post, I have stalled on everything I set out to do this month, and even though I tried to pump myself up, I just couldn't, even with encouraging words from friends. Well, this week, I am taking that Thurs and Fri off, so I have 5 days off. That's unheard of for me. Like seriously. I'm the person who will take 3 shifts of overtime each paycheck. At my previous job, I worked the entire month of May last year, except for the 4th (May the 4th Be With You tee hee). That's how much I usually work. When I left my previous position and started my current job, I left on a Friday and started on Monday. No break. It's just not the way I work.
BUT!! I'm just not doing so well mentally right now. Not saying that I ever was ;) but I have grown indifferent to everything. I think that's what stalled all I was doing. I got super excited at the beginning of the year, but then it was just another added thing. So, during these 5 days of Break, I will be literally taking a Break. I'm going to clean my house and declutter it. I'm going to do the same thing mentally. Find out whats going on up top (not a whole hell of a lot I'm sure lol). And I'm going to start taking a serious look at my schedule, because I'm over doing it. I have work, Hubby, the Kids, my Mom (who's not in the best of health, and I'm her only source of transportation), Cub Scouts (I'm a leader), Girl Scouts, Rainbow Girls, etc... I'm about to have a Breakdown, I think.
The weather is starting to cooperate, so I think, if I get things straightened out, I might try to take the kids for a walk this weekend. I'm not going to make any lofty promises yet, because I need to get everything else taken care of first. I will also look into lightening all of my current recipes. I'm going to be a fiend on MFP with the Recipe creator for a while lol.
Needed to get this off my chest, thanks for all the support that YOU have sent my way!
