This is the final day of my mini vacation. I always have mixed feelings about going back to work…I don’t hate my job…I actually usually like it. But I really like being at home too. I just don’t have an option…I have to have a job or I’ll be living in a tent in the woods. There was a time in my life when I would have enjoyed that, but not so much any more. I’m thinking the cats wouldn’t be wild about that arrangement either!
Yes, they are both spoiled…they don’t really get along so this is a very unusual picture…looks like they’re friends…ha!
I intended to really work on improving my blog while I was off. In some ways I did get a little done. I’ve been reading a lot of blogs and joined some communities that are focused on blogging. But I sure didn’t spend the time I could have working on it. I wanted to work out a plan…a schedule of what to write about each day of the week…haven’t done that yet. And the design…I really want to jazz it up, but I don’t feel like I know enough about that yet. One of the communities I joined (SITS) will be having free online classes in April…I’ll definitely be there for those. By reading the schedule of events, I know I’ll be able to get a lot out of these classes!
One of the things I know I need to do is find a real focus…losing weight? fitness? running? frugal living? some combination of all of those? That’s how I’m leaning, but not sure how to achieve it…Different pages with different posts on various days of the week? Then I read that a blogger should post more than once a day…seriously? I haven’t even managed to get to the posting every day place. But maybe that’s where having a set routine about what I’m going to focus on each day would help.
I did manage to get a lot of housework done while I was off though…I mean major, move the furniture, clean the walls and carpet housework. Rearranged the pantry…but didn’t get the closets cleaned out…darn! And didn’t get my taxes done either…got to get that done soon. It’s just not one of my favorite things to do (like it’s anyone’s favorite thing, right?).
So, back to work in the morning, trying to find time to fit in the household chores that have to be done every day, exercise, communicating with friends and blogging. I know these are the same issues everyone faces, so I know it can be done. I just have to figure out how to go about accomplishing it in my life…I’ll get it done, for sure I will!
