Busy and Lovin' It
When the skies turned dark and poured at the end of the work day, I couldn't be happier. It was just such blessed relief. Rain usually puts me in a nice mood. I loved that heavy pelting of raindrops against the car as it steadily drove me home. The driver was most amused by me humming (and whistling) the theme songs of Smurfs, Strawberry Shortcake and The Love Boat all the way. The end of the week marks a pause to the madness at work. There will be a brief respite before it all starts again.
That's the best part about work- the downs and the ups that bring on the frowns and the laughter. I'm not all that lazy. Just so you know, I do like using my brains. It's fairly fascinating to discover and learn what I can't or won't be able to do.
It's a big sign when all my lunches have become work lunches (and I don't mean lunching with colleagues) and many dinners are spent with clients. I'm beginning to lose track of all the meetings, project deadlines, etc. I've started using the Outlook calendar in earnest for work and my Berry calendar for social events. And what did I just say last month about keeping everything in my head?
Finally, I can use the seriously annoying line (excuse) of "I'm busy" to reject all sorts of requests and outings because I truly am! :p The prioritization of what I do with the time which belongs to me, has never been more compelling.
