This is me. (Via Cuteoverload.)

My mom says I have to make some changes, and she's right. Long workdays plus weekends, it's too much. No prospect that my hours will change, really. They tell me things will settle down this summer but I don't know why they would. I don't see plans being made even two days ahead, let alone two months. It kills me to do it, but I'm looking around. I like my job but I have to have a life.

I've been there and the best thing I ever did was make a change. Think about it and do what you need to do. Don't think about work...THINK ABOUT YOU.

Did you think about you today Princess?

Laura(southernxyl) said...

Yes, I did. I had to go in to work today. Apparently the CEO has decided that it's not necessary to work me and the plant manager to death. Because they have to do some stuff in the morning that does not require my presence, he told me I can drift in around 10:00 or 10:30. I'll work no later in the evenings. That will help because I'll have some time in my house when I'm not completely beat, to either do housework or just drink another cup of coffee and bum around. I could actually go in at 8:00, or 7:00 or 6:00, and spend all that time doing paperwork but it's not getting done now, so what the heck.

I'm still looking around, though.

Thanks for your concern. I mean it.

Actually ... as to thinking about me and not work, I guess I didn't actually do that. I'm too close to it. Dang.

That's what I was thinking when I read your comment. You were thinking waaaaaaaaay too much about work when you SHOULD have been taking some time for yourself.

*sigh*

I thought about myself today, Monnie. From 8:00 AM to about 9:45 AM. And I plan to do it again tomorrow, because I didn't finish.
