Of Spring & Breaks!
Alas, I tend to learn my act in public.
Don't get me wrong - I am truly grateful for the opportunities that have come my way in the last twelve months or so. It's just that I'm experiencing the first warning signs of plate-dropping. And I like to think that, over the last few years, I've learned to stop at that point and re-adjust rather than stubbornly soldiering on. (Crazy, I know, but I used to think, "Well, that's okay! If I work harder, I can keep the rest of them from dropping! Hey, let me add another one over here! Whoops!" Did I mention crazy already?)
So this post is a few days late. Trust me, it's better this way.
I have a few days off from school and I'm trying to be very strict with myself. I've already said "no" to at least two get-togethers and I'm (trying to) only check work e-mail once a day. (Shouldn't do it at all, but one class is an online and they don't have break, so there's my justification.) I took the Spookster for a long walk in the sunshine today and am ignoring the dirty kitchen floor. I have a couple of old movies that I plan to watch and some "non-work work" I plan to turn my hand to over the next few days. There's a book on the nightstand and a kitten at my ankles.
Billy Joel had this one right.
See you soon.
