That’s what it feels like every week…suddenly, it is Sunday! The last week is over and a new week is on the horizon. Time is flying by me. I can’t believe it is already almost 2014! But, I have to face it and embrace it! Hmmmmm…I kind of like that as my 2014 motto.
Face it and Embrace it!
Today has definitely been a good day. I am still in my pajamas. For the first time in a long, long time, I have had a day with nowhere to go, no one to take care of (my daughter is at my in-laws and my husband is traveling for work – I guess I have the dog and cat, but they are pretty simple and don’t call me by name), and no reason to get dressed or go out the front door. It has been GLORIOUS! Really, it is just what I needed and proves to me that this is something I need to make happen more often. I need to send my husband and daughter away for a weekend once every two months or so and just take a weekend to myself. I am productive – I’ve been grading, cleaning, organizing…and I feel good about it. I am relatively relaxed and positive. It is refreshing. Definitely a good thing. And I even had to work all day yesterday, so really it was just one day that I needed.
Speaking of work, I am going to be instituting some major changes in the coming year. I will talk more about those changes tomorrow on Management Monday, but I think that is one thing today has allowed me to do. Just sit and think about things, reflect and recharge.
