Oh, The Havoc That Something Called...

a Full-Time Job can wreak upon one's good intentions!

yep, I got a lovely 20-hour part-time job at the tail end of October that was just
perfect for my life...

and then come December, it transformed into a full-time position...mannnnnn....

I remember when I was in my 20s that I could:

keep a spotless house
keep a gorgeous garden
have a family (husband & son)
volunteer with animal rescue
keep a house full of our own 4-legged children
work full-time
attend college

and still have a social life...

Pardon me, but what happened?

now if I get 1 little extra thing done in the course of 7 days, I'm pleased as punch...

this week's major accomplishment was...

oh hell...that was last week...

*Complete disclosure: I haven't really visited my blog friends because I felt like such a slacker but I'm going to try to do better...really...

Glad to see you posting, I've been giving it some thought too. I think I have you beat in the slacker catagory.

I was sooo happy to see a post pop up on Bloglines! So that's what you've been up to! I've been wondering where you went off to - do tell us all about the job etc!

Well hallelujah! She returns! You have been sorely missed. I hope you will blog about your new job.
You are so right about how we could do things in our 20's and can't seem to manage that today. Who was it that said "Youth is wasted on the young." I can't seem to do nearly as much now as I did then. And I'm just working part time!

oh, it is just a regular job like everybody else's...

I do keep lobbying for a company car, flex-time and 6 figures...

I've been there over 6 months...I don't see the problem

Glad to see you blogging again and hope that you'll have more time for it again soon. It is so hard to do everything that you need to do and still have time to do what you want to do.

it's all about the journey...
