Where have I been? Well, not too far- honestly.
Been trying to do anything to keep my mind off of being worried. The good news is I don’t have to travel far- my work laptop is right beside my home computer and while you were perhaps having a restful long holiday weekend, I was busy working! A half-day of catch-up on Saturday, and one day of rest (Sunday). I figured Monday would be a slow day, but NOT… I felt like I was trapped in a whirlwind of deadlines and issues.
You see, my job security hinges on my ability to suck up extra work therefore making myself critical to the business. Hence, a chance of not getting laid off.
I know what you are thinking- I am clearly delusional. And in this corporate world crammed into a bad economy everyone is expendable. I get, I get it. I am merely racking up some good credits for later this month when I will take 3 sick days.
After all, I may be a workaholic, but I am not insane.
Yesterday (Tuesday) I did take a day off and went to see my stylist for a haircut and touchup. I love my stylist. I don’t even have to tell him what to do with my hair, he always has the best ideas. Yesterday’s idea… CUT IT OFF!! and so we did. Three inches in fact.
I feel lighter and quite happy. Not to mention I love being closer to my real strawberry-blonde hair color.
Then I went to Trader Joe’s and bought myself some flowers and a mint green tea to drink.
By the time I got home, I was peaceful.
Not a bad day!
