Back to the Grind

It’s back to work in a few hours. In fact, I am giving myself 9 minutes to type, publish, and settle down. At bed by 8, I can still take a two-hour nap before getting ready for a full day’s work. That should be enough, I’d slept enough this weekend.

Of course, if I were to be honest, I’d rather stay home on a Sunday night. I’d rather work at home. But I can’t. Until I find an alternative way to earn the money I get from my day(night) job, I can’t give it up. Don’t get me wrong. I do love my job, and I own it. There were times when I didn’t, and times when I get so frustrated I dread going to work. But August is a new month, and I feel a certain positive vibe that I hope electrifies everyone in the office. We need it. Smile

Still, wouldn’t it be nice to have a life where you can jump from one vacation to another? You know, have a membership at a posh hotel, or just preferred treatment at Lake Buena Vista Hotels and have a Disney vacation whenever you want. I’m adding vacation packages to Disney World in my bucket of stuff to save up for. I will get you someday! Haha. Smile

Looking at Britt-ish Designs blog is an inspiration both for digital scrapbooking but also for having fun and always making room for the kid in all of us. They always go to Disney World! She and her husband share that passion. Now, I don’t think that Alfred particularly wants a trip to Disneyland, but I know he won’t turn down a chance to. He’s gotta be interested in going at least once in his life. Smile

Until then, I’ll be a working girl. And I don’t mind it.

There’s always next weekend to look forward to anyway. And after-shift food trip with friends or just the boyfriend and myself. And there’s always room for crazy ideas.
