There you are Jenn

You all know that I've been lost in the world of work in the last 6 months. I was working so many hours I barely had time to do think let alone do anything I wanted to.

And working 50-60 hours a week made me tired. I just didn't want to leave my house...ever.

This last couple of weeks I've rediscovered myself. One evening I was sitting on the couch, didn't have any work to do and really didn't know what to do with myself. It was bizarre.

So I picked up a book and read. It was so refreshing and so nice to do one of my favorite things.

The last two weekends I've not "worked" in that I haven't had to, and only did a few things to make Monday more enjoyable.

So here I am. I'm back.

Now, I just need to get caught up with what my life is all about.

Spring is here in the NW. We've had some beautiful, hot days and we've had some wet, wet days. Typical in the NW. The Niece and I are plotting a couple road trips this year and now we have to just wait for warm weather.

We're also planning a trip to Savannah GA and Atlanta. The girls are walking the 3Day in Atlanta this year. I figured if I'm going to Georgia, then I'm going to Savannah. It's been on my list for a bit thanks to St. Louis SIL. Then discussing with the MomUnit, we've not decided to maybe also go to Charleston, SC. It's only 2 hours heck ya. Let's do it.

The rest of the life is still just too boring to mention.But beware...I'm feeling more like myself these watch out!

Where the hell have I been?

I wish I had a good excuse for why I've not been blogging, but I have none. The only thing that comes to mine is that I'm not doing anything overly interesting and therefore nothing to write about.

And there in lies the issue...

I'm not doing anything.

I had breakfast with Blueberry this morning. She mentioned she feels like we never see each other anymore or do anything together. We steal a breakfast or dinner here or there to get "caught up" but we don't "DO" anything. What happened to us?

I can tell you what happened to me. I stopped being available. I stopped being the planner. I just stopped.

I didn't do it on purpose. I didn't plan it. It just happened. Work became the focus of my life, and I let it. By the time the weekend came around, I just want to sit on my couch and do nothing...or continue to work. It was all consuming.

I need to make changes. I think now that I have a new PM there to help lighten the load, I might be able to get back to living.

Summer is coming and I'd rather not have the summer go by and not have done anything. So here's the plan...I'm going to start putting stuff on the calendar with people. That way, if it's on the calendar, I won't bail. Well, I could bail, but I won't. I want to get back into life.

I'm going to spend a good part of today planning. There are walks I want to go on, place I want to see and people I want to spend time with.

I got a new duck..well several new ducks actually. I am hoping 1) I won't lose them and 2) I'll get out more with the ducks.

OD (for odd duck), Snookie, Cheeto, Carrot, Clementine and Agent Orange.
