Taking a Break
I’m doing it! I’m taking a.. wait for it… a short break!
I’m taking a break with family and friends and food and fun and EVERYTHING.
It’s my son’s 13th birthday on Monday, so we’re heading away early in the morning and I’ll be back on duty by Tuesday, so expect your next post and email by then (are you on the list? Go Join the Mailing List and get the updates first!).
Problems I am having with this plan:
- I knew it was coming, and I didn’t batch or get ahead of my work well enough to not be in a panic and probably working til midnight again tonight and be wrecked before I even set off in the morning. Sigh.
- I promised ye daily emails. Well, daily (ish), to be entirely fair to myself. And a lot of folk have been in touch saying how helpful they’re finding this. So now I’m LETTING YOU DOWN. Sigh.
- *mumbles* I don’t really believe I deserve time off, because I haven’t done enough. Super sigh.
Yeah, not all of that makes sense. I know, I really do.
But you know what? I’m taking a break anyway.
Because logically, I know the world will not end if I don’t stay working all weekend. Logically, I know that my family will not starve if I’m not at my desk from 9am to midnight every single day of the week. Logically, I understand that my body, mind and spirit all need proper down time.
So, see you Tuesday?! What can you do to take care of yourself this weekend?
