The Week That Was
It’s been a big week here but I don’t have much to show for it. Lots of things happening yet nothing much progressing. It’s exhausting and frustrating in equal measure – I hate these sorts of weeks.
And as a result I’m physically and mentally exhausted.
I’ve had a head cold mixed with sinus that certainly hasn’t helped. I’ve had a voice that has come and gone and instead of being husky and sexy when it’s around, I just sound like a man. So unfair.
I just want to feel better soon or get fully ill so I can justify some time to rest – is that really too much to ask?
Meanwhile it’s been crazy busy at work and I never seem to have enough time there. But I suspect even if I were full-time, it would be the same story. In the end you can only do what you can do and hope it’s enough.
I just wish my brain would accept this fact and stop making me feelt guilty for working part-time. I also wish my brain would stop encouraging me to double-guess my ability and make me feel inadequate in my role. Stop with the mind games already!
Closer to home I hope we can finally come to a decision about our house design. We are heading off to see some more display homes tomorrow and fingers crossed we’ll have a winner soon. At least we are starting to get a little more excited about the building process now – I can’t wait to start looking at decor and interiors!
On the personal front, I started Weight Watchers yesterday for the second time. I have been thinking about starting back for a while but I finally took the step when my workplace initiated corporate meetings on site. I really had no more excuses – it was a case of now or never.
I’m so glad I went. I am heavier than I thought I was but it is no real surprise. Tight clothes and hard to zip up pants don’t usually lie, do they? My first full day was today and I was so pleased I had the willpower to stick to the program. I hope that is a sign of things to come as willpower has not been my strong point recently…we’ll have to wait and see.
So that’s all I know from this frustrating and exhausting week – I really, really hope that next week is a little less full on!
