I have been feeling a little MIA this week because I’ve been quite busy. Work has been extra crazy lately, and now that we’re moving, I want to spend all my free time going through stuff, doing errands to prep for the new place, and pack. We don’t move for another month, so we have plenty of time. I can already tell I’m getting so antsy about it though. I just wish we were in the new place already!
I literally feel my life consists of three things lately: work, chores, and running. And that’s it. Okay, obviously there is more to my life than that, but it really feels like that’s all that’s going on. So that’s the theme of today’s post 🙂
Amazingly enough, yesterday I had time to whip out that post & read a devo before going to work, I ran on my lunch, was really productive at work, and finally had last night to myself a little more. It’s been really hard to not be addicted to doing and just keep going lately though since work has been so busy. It’s easy for me to come home and still be in “I must be busy and working” mode. Story of my life, basically.
Anyway, work has been crazy. When I first started my job, I used to a little bit of downtime here and there to catch up on things or take a breather, but now I literally feel like I am working 100% of my day. I have to stop myself from keeping on working when 5 pm comes around. I was thinking about it the other day, and I feel like I could go in an hour early and stay an hour late and still have more to do at the end of the day.
Since adding in runch, I feel like that’s a good and a bad thing. I get some time to get my stress out, but I’m also exhausting myself in the middle of my day instead of getting a break. However, because I run on lunch, I usually eat lunch afterward now at about one o’clock. But if I’m busy at that time, I’m forced to multitask as I eat my lunch/work at the same time. Not very fun.
Although work has been more stressful lately, I actually feel like I like my job even more. I have more responsibility and I have the hang of it way better than I did before. It’s kind of crazy, but I think it’s a good crazy that will pass. Or so I hope!
I don’t know what it is lately, but I feel like when I come home from work, my whole night is eaten away by chores. I think part of it has to do with doing the detox. Now I am making everything from scratch and taking extra time to cook. That means a lot of time cooking and then a bunch of dishes to clean every night. After all that, I usually want to sweep the floor, wipe down the counters, and tidy up the rest of the house.
I also prep my and my husband’s lunch every night as well as plan my outfit for the next day. It makes my morning so much easier, but sometimes I dread having to do all the prep the nightbefore.
Between prep at work and home, lately it feels like so much of my life is spent preparing for tomorrow. It’s always about tomorrow. But I would rather do something now than rush doing it the next day or not do it at all.
But at least I have running. Even though training for this half and taking time to run in general adds more on my plate, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Of all the things I “have” to do these days, running is the one thing I don’t go to grudgingly. Running is just… well, if you run you know and if you don’t, you don’t.
Seeing this view on my run last weekend?
That’s what this is. Annnd I can’t believe my half is next weekend. omg. But running has been good. I feel ready for the race.
I’m not going to lie – it has been really annoying me to not have more time for blogging. I can barely pump out blog posts, let alone read all my favorite or reader blogs. But, maybe it was a blessing in disguise that I decide to let go of posting so much right now.
Here’s to making it until Friday!
