I’m so glad it’s the weekend. Yesterday was so long. I didn’t get a chance to eat lunch until 3:30. I thought I was going pass out. It was a very busy day for me and around the world. The second I got in the car at 7AM yesterday, I heard that Chuck Greenberg was resigning from the Rangers…crazy! Shortly after that, my morning radio station informed me of the major earthquake and tsunami in Japan. What a tragedy?!? I’ve definitely been praying for everyone affected.
I had training meetings all day for work. It wasn’t too bad because I actually learned quite a bit and I got a chance to spend time with the other outside reps in my region. It was good to hear their perspectives on the job. I laughed because when I first started, they were like, “this job is so easy, you might work 30-35 hours a week.”
This time, they were like, “See? Didn’t we tell you that you’d work 15 hours a week…MAX?”
I said, “Next time I see you guys you’re going to be down to 5 hours a week!”
I compare this job to being a pothead (I’m sure my parents and grandparents appreciate that…sorry guys). I’m perfectly content, but I’m definitely going to get lazy. Now, don’t worry, I had to take a little trip down memory lane to my college years to remember what that was even like, but the comparison is spot on and I think I turned okay despite my experimental years. Anyway, I can feel my aspirations being sucked right out of me. Like I said before, this job will be perfect when I have others things to deal with – like kids. Until then, I guess I’ll have to deal with the great schedule, company car and 0 pressure. It sounds easy, but it’s not quite as simple as it seems.
I took a little nap after I had dinner last night and spent the rest of the evening watching TV/Sopranos in preparation for a busy and productive day today. When Wade got up, he went to starbucks and got me my croissant and some coffee. That really makes a Saturday morning! He’s so great! I’ve gotten a ton of school done, gone to the grocery store, had lunch and all while the projects continue around this place.
It’s a beautiful day, but I’ve got so much to do indoors. I can’t wait for 100 degrees and swimming pools!
