um... what blog

I am certainly the slackest blogger this side of the black stump

I have been sliding onto one side of my chair and off the other mostly in the past couple of weeks.

Mindlessly playing endless games of Bejewelled Blitz. Escape from reality.

Plus a bit of photo editing as you might have noticed. I ♥ Faces. I ♥ that blog.

Working working and more working.

Money money money.. all good.

Trouble is, I am a person that needs a day a week, or at least a few hours of ALONE time. Total alone. No one here. Silence. Just my thoughts and me. And my computer, or book, or camera or artwork.. whatever. sometimes I will play a cd and sing along or quietly meditate. This is my recharge time. If I dont get it, I get further and further disconnected. I start to get neurotic (well more then usual) and sad.

I have one more week of full time work in this block, but another six weeks could be added on top of it. I definately have six full weeks coming up, we just dont know when it starts. Hopefully i will get a few days off inbetween. Only problem there is my husband is off work and doing some renovations around the house for the rest of august. Aaaggghhhh. I shouldnt complain. I will probably complain when all the work and money dries up.. although the way i am going I get more and more and more.

I am off to shop now and cook for my biggest girls birthday dinner, she will be 17 on Tuesday and we will be having the whole family over for dinner this evening. yay. sigh.

Enjoy your sunday.

yeah, you are pretty relaxed about your blogging, that is true. Have fun tonight. :D

Hmmm, I just looked back on the calendar, and with the recent school holidays, it was early July that I had my last 'recharge' day.

No wonder I am in such a bad place now... am maxed out... sigh

Hi Jen ....thank you for your lovely comments ...

I try to grab hours ....a me hour here and there ...

I also write gratitude lists ...

Somehow that helps me.

Jenn~ wouldn't it be nice if we had an extra couple of hours a day? Hours that we were to dedicate to ourselves? Time for reading, art, photography, or Blogging? I must demand from myself just an hour or two per day, and then be really strong when the girls, husband or pets, are trying to divert me from "my time". Maybe I should do as at work,;;"Janis, I need..."(my hand goes up and I say)"Can you give me a few minutes? Not quite done with my break." Ha Ha.. Maybe I will try. I will let you know how that works=D

Wow Jen I could have written this myself!!
Husbands with broken toes, oldest sons not at school much due to time for myself whatsoever.

I hope the birthday dinner was a good night :)
