Heigh-Ho.... Off to work...

I wish that my job was as simple as digging diamond out a deep dark mine... or at least as straight forward. But it ain't. It's messy and complicated and sometimes hard to tell if you are doing anything right.

And after a couple weeks staying home it is hard to go back. As much as I know that working is better for me, gets me up and out of the house, gives me a schedule and sense of purpose, it is always an adjustment when I first go back after a break. I am totally used up by the time I get home. By the time I get my chores done... I am empty. I can't think of anything witty or thought provoking or even sexy to write on my blog. I can hardly think at all.

It is a process I go through the first couple of days back. And to tell you the truth, it is the same for the kids. They all seem a little shell shocked and very out of control... which drains me even more.

I am home today. I am not sure if it is a blessing or a curse, but I have a dentist appointment right in the middle of the day so I am taking the whole day. I have a long list of things that I procrastinated about for those two weeks, errands, bills, bank... (like I have said many times before, unstructured time just does not work for me. I am a deadline type of girl.)

And I have already gotten a good start. And the last two things on the list are get my nails done and then go for a nice long walk around the Mall with permission to buy a pair of earrings.

You guys have a good day.


  1. Nail done, and earrings, nice! What kind of earrings?

  2. Wow, that is too funny!!! As I am sitting here watching Snow White with my daughter I clicked on your post and saw the video. They were even singing the hi-ho song just then.

  3. Sounds like a lovely day - hope you enjoyed it!
