invading my thoughts

Now everyone is talking about the drones. #Late

————–

I want to say, “Please stop! I’m sort of having a nervous breakdown and just need a break.” Work is kicking my ass. I’m going to have to dedicate all  my off hours to work (meaning no pay). It is kind of hard to work when you are thinking of ways to kill yourself all day but that was in December. This is February. I have to do better.

I feel like I’m sinking and that I’ll never catch up.  But I don’t have a choice. I must catch up. I must work 24/7 if I have to. That is easier said than done. Our system isn’t always up. To have the flexibility to work whenever would be so nice. I’m a night person. I would love to get extra work in at 11PM or whenever I felt like it.

Just typing this up has made me think clearer. On Tuesdays I go to water aerobics at 7PM. I can leave my house at 3:45, go to the mall (free wi-fi) and work from there until it is time for water aerobics. The mall is actually pretty quiet. It isn’t popular.  My laptop battery should  last for 3 hours.

That solves extra work one day a week and I will as I always do work extra on Saturdays. I might add Friday nights to this. On Fridays I like to quick work just like everyone else! But I might need that catch up time. Whew. If I have to do more off the clock work than this, something is seriously wrong.

So tonight I’m working. I will either do it with a music marathon, a Daily Show marathon or the last two episodes of Homeland (season 1). At least that makes it fun. I might even try to work while consuming my last wine cooler. I only brought them for the Superbowl.

If you want a great workout and hate the machines in the gym, do pilates. I went to pilates class yesterday. It is sooooooooo hard. I can do 80% of the stuff but the 20% I can’t do is making me not want to go back next week. (Unlike the pilates class I went to a year ago where I could barely do anything!)  Also, it is a small class. They are regulars. I don’t know. There is a small chance I will return. Very small. If I could figure out how to do this:

I would go back but I cannot lay down and lift my back from the mat/floor. If it is a strength thing, it makes sense. I have no strength. 😉 I guess that is what I’m missing. Athletes do pilates. There were runners in our class. I definitely recommend it. I just wish I could figure out how to rise from the floor. Oh well, there is always yoga and water aerobics.

The longer I do water aerobics, the less likely I think I will learn how to swim. I love the water and I get to be in the water during class. Besides even if I learned to swim, I don’t think I would actually swim at the Y unless I could find a time when it is almost empty (maybe weekday mornings around 6AM?) So…I don’t know. I’ve seen swimming lessons at the Y and I’m not impressed. It scares me.

Walgreens has 40% off prints so I may post my January Project Life spreads in a week. I’ve had good and bad prints from Walgreens. My last batch was good so I’m going back to that store again.

Off to work. I’m watching The Daily Show for inspiration. I’m so tired. My neighbors decided to blast music for an hour after I went to sleep so I don’t know what I’ll accomplish tonight.
