I'm Back


Last week I lost my mojo, which is why I didn't really post anything.  I had a hard time staying focused at work.  I had a hard time staying motivated on the home front.  One day, last week, I left the office "early" at 5 PM and just came home and got in bed* to read on my iPad.  I'm much better today, but my analysis of last week is that I miss my husband and I finally reached my work limit.

I miss my husband, because my husband's work, school, and recruiting is keeping him on the road all the time.  He's only clocking approximately 36 to 48 hours a week in Dallas.  My life is much less enjoyable without my husband around.  But nobody wants to read about how hard my life is, right?

Poor little me.  My husband is working on an Ivy League MBA and everyone wants to interview him for a job because he's very much a supernatural individual, which means I don't see him enough.  Again, poor me.

And I've reached my work limit because my assignment is long and tedious.  I've had more career success in the last 18-months than in my previous 9 years combined, but it's wearing me out because I'm driven.  I am motivated by delivering results to my clients, but that isn't always easy!  Last week I was in a funk.  

My husband and I had a really nice weekend together, and I told my client that I am not (and my team is not) working any more than 40 hours each week for the rest of the year.

Onward.

 *Can you blame me for wanting to hang out in my bed?  My mother and father sent us the bedding and it's soft and bright and beautiful.

  1. You are so right about limiting work hours so that you have some town to rejuvenate yourself. . .
    The bedding looks great! I did such a good job of picking it out!
    I can't wait to see your home with one wall down.
