Saturday, October 19, 2013Remember a few weeks ago when I talked about how I have to schedule time for fun or I won't do it at all?
That totally got thrown by the wayside when I picked up a temporary side gig doing some data entry. It was awesome - I'm not going to complain about extra money - but was really draining to come home from work, have a quick supper and then work another 4 hours. To everyone who works two jobs, I salute you! I am very excited to get back into a somewhat normal routine that balances life and work, but that doesn't mean I won't rule out evening work in the future to get my potential business off the ground.
I think this double working was also the reason that I took Thursday off work to wallow at home with cold medication and the Anne of Green Gables movie series. In the past when I take on too much and have very little me time, I always get sick when it's over and this was no exception.
I started feeling crappy Wednesday around noon and when I woke up Thursday I knew that if I went to work, I would be unproductive, and just make this cold last longer. It sucks to be sick, but it's actually nicer to be sick at home than at work!
Other than that, my week was great! I got to hang out with one my bridesmaids twice (once during brunch and on Wednesday when we went to an election rally), had a blast in Calgary with my sister & brother-in-law to be, and got to spend quality time with Ian, which mostly included him making his poor, sick fiancé supper.
Low of my week: Being sick. I turn into a really big baby when I'm sick.
High of my week: Toss up between hanging out with Heather on Saturday and spending time in Calgary over the weekend.
