I have no idea what’s going on today. Money? No idea what I will end up with. It ain’t looking robust, but I’ll be fine. I think Karma sent me a little reminder on why I am choosing gainful employment over this Maggie & Co. gig. Thank you, Karma, but a little extra money won’t taint me, I promise.
The Hunter is wooing me. He was hurt that I wanted a clean break. He is using his favorite tool, sex, to try to win me back. I can’t complain about that. We still have so many months of co-habitation that my plan is to just go with the flow.
I said good-bye to two clients this week and put them in the hands of a colleague. It’s bittersweet, but I’m glad to close those chapters. I have one to go. Plus many memos and follow up with these colleagues to insure a seamless transition. Sigh.
I got on the scale and it was ugly. Very ugly. I really have to figure out how to plan exercise into my new daily routine once I start working. This company works 9-hour days, 4 days a week and then 7 on Friday (including 1-hour lunch). Add in my one-hour minimum commute each way and I’m occupied 11 hours a day. Maybe a lunch workout? Can I handle getting up at 5:00 to get 45 minutes in before my day starts? My first thought is to work out after work so I can miss the rush hour, but will I be too tired?
My diet sucks. I’m eating whatever is put in front of me and I’m not making healthy choices. Ugh. I have to fix that, but I haven’t really put much thought into how. I do plan on taking lunch and I will probably also take breakfast since these days start so damn early. That will help me get back on track. I’ve been Pintresting like a fiend on lunch ideas or grab n’ go breakfast ideas.
Now on the positive side, I have been working on my sleeping habits. I have been making sure I’m in bed by 10 and up by 6. Next week I will tweak it a little more so I’m up by 5:30. I’ll need to leave the house by 6:30 to get to work with a little buffer in case of traffic. I’m driving over 50 miles each way, so my goal is to be early rather than on time or late.
I am keeping myself busy every day. I have a dentist appointment this week plus I may go ahead and get new tires so I’ll be safer driving in the summer rains. I have my final industry networking event tomorrow night. I’m not even sure I want to go.
I also have lots of paperwork to cull through, a call to the IRS to figure out what I owe and troubleshoot why I can’t use the online system, packing up my office or at least cleaning it out really good. I might as well throw stuff into boxes and be done.
My future looks busy. Very, very busy. I hope it translates into money. Steady, good money.
