I've made reference on here before about this nifty little time sheet app on my phone.
In the past I haven't wanted to know how much I work. I knew it was a lot. And that was really enough for me. Well, this week I stayed diligent and entered in my hours every day. It is a little sickening. BUT, this was the busiest of busy weeks.
You want to know the number don't you? Morbid curiosity, is it? Maybe I shouldn't tell you. Maybe I should make you bribe me with candy? Well, ok, I'll tell: 71.33 hours this past week. Sad, isn't it?
I'm not crazy. Really, I'm not. Besides all our Dave Ramsey budgeting plans, we got a little screwed with taxes this year. I won't go in to details because I don't like discussing politics with people. I'll just say that I'd like to pay Uncle Sam off as soon as possible . . . greedy uncle that he is.
Anyway, so it wasn't all a horrible, grueling week. I did get to attend the fourth grade field trip this week. I did go have lunch and spent some time with my grandma this week. I did have very important talks with the kids. And I had some very important laughs with the kids as well.
Working that much makes bad habits. I didn't sleep near enough. And I ate absolutely horribly. I over ate. I ate crappy foods. I didn't work out. It wasn't pretty.
Tonight I thought I would have a little "I survived the week" celebration! I made myself a scalding hot bath with nice smelling bath salts. I bought myself a bag of cheesy popcorn and some Smirnoff's. And I brought in a fiction book with absolutely no educational or real life relevancy. And I had a good ten minutes of relaxing before children started knocking on the door. Silly children!
Tonight I am thankful that I made it thru this week. Next week will be better. I knew going in to this week that it would be rough. I had just pushed too much in to the week. Next week looks better on paper so far, anyway!
I am thankful for my 10 minutes of relaxation and junk food tonight too! Next week I must eat better and exercise more. There are no "maybe"s on this one for sure!
