It's still snowing or raining or some combination of the two. It's the kind of weather that makes me want to do nothing. So it's not a huge motivator. But today, I worked out after work! I drove one of my co-workers home because he is without a car after having it reposessed when he lost his higher paying job. Sad story, nice boy...glad to be of service.
Then I had lunch and watched tv. I finished the book I was reading last night and also finished my online course (100% on my final exam, thank you very much!) so I pretty much just felt like doing nothing all day. Then I decided to do SOMETHING, so I worked out for about a half hour. It wasn't a high intensity type workout, but my jobs are pretty physically demanding most of the time.
I am looking forward to Sunday again. It is funny how before, my days off were my errand days...spent doing all the things I couldn't do the rest of the week because I was AT work. Now, because of my schedule, I am more likely to do errands on my work days and so have no guilty feelings about just spending a nice relaxing day with Hubby at the end of the week. I was hoping my new schedule would be a chance for me to spend more time planning meals and cooking, but I've come to realise that I don't really like cooking and our meal 'planning' system has worked for so long, why mess with a good thing, right?!
Since falling into a regular schedule at my new job, I am feeling almost no stress. I have even already put in for time off for Thanksgiving week this year! We are planning our 10th wedding anniversary trip to Las Vegas and I already know I'm getting the time off, so I am less stressed about it and the excitement of taking a vacation (the first in many years) is taking over.
Things are good. I'm feeling happy again!
But I really need to figure out if I want to be in my studio...I just never feel creative. Maybe that ship has sailed?
