For awhile I wasn't getting excited about Fridays anymore. I work weekends, even if just for a few hours. I can't remember the last weekend that I didn't work. So Fridays were just another day.
The last several Fridays I've gotten a little more excited. Only about a third of my appraisal clients work weekends. So weekends are a time to do more fun realtor work and try to catch up on appraisal work.
This week just started out so bad. I don't remember having a day as bad as this Monday was in a long, long time. Tuesday got a little better. Wednesday got a little better, especially ending with fun family time at the fair. Thursday was better with the fun ballgame with my son. But even with that, I had to keep the mindset not to stress about the work I left at home. Believe me, I kept that mindset and we had fun! And we walked out of the ballpark and I saw all the voicemails on my phone, I intentionally did not check a single one until we were back home. Today was the best day yet.
And I'm excited it's Friday. I have a lot to get done this weekend! But, there is a whole lot of possibilities to kick some butt for two whole days without constant phone and email distractions!
Tonight I am thankful for Friday. I am thankful for a weekend without impatient people. And I am thankful for sleep . . . 'cause I'm going to bed right now. I am excited to go to bed at 8:10 on a Friday! Seriously excited!
