My good friend Melody just got a job, after being out of work just about as long as me.
Our offices are now fairly close to each other, and yesterday we were making lunch plans for next week. We decided to meet on Monday.
Today, we realized that Monday is a holiday. This tells you how long we've been out of work.
I'm looking forward to this 3-day weekend, as I really don't have any big plans. I mean, I have things I want to do, but I don't have anything I need to do. I'd like to plant some mums, but I don't have to. I'd like to clean out my closet, but it's not necessary.
I feel like I've been packing my days to the limit, trying to check off everything on my list in the short time I'm alloted. But is it really an accomplishment if I'm exhausted and cranky?
So this weekend will be time for me to recharge and regroup, and do what I want to do, instead of telling myself I have to.
What are your plans?
