No No No! – Stick to the Status Quo!

Have you ever wondered how many times you can actually damn someone to hell before it either happens immediately (with them bursting into flames – disintegrating right before your eyes) or it backfires and you find yourself in the middle of nowhere drinking a nice hot bowl of ice cream?

Me neither…but I can tell you that it’s only been 3 weeks since I’ve re-entered the workforce and I promise you, I have secretly banished my old/new boss at least 100 times within the last 20 days.

That’s a startling number.

At least five times a day; not to mention times when I find myself wondering…what in the hell did I get myself back into, and then other times when I simply want to punch both us in the face – in no particular order of course.

When I was offered the opportunity to work from home I weighed all the pros and cons.  Eventually, the pros outweighed the cons and I accepted.  I figured I would be able to make a decent living without disrupting my daily schedule.

While this is still probably true, in fact it is true, I have yet to find my rhythm.  I’m ritualistic.  I am a methodical person.  If you know me you know that.  All I can say is this job has completely thrown off my chi.

I’ve gone from working out 5 days a week; at least an hour a day, to the point where I can’t remember when I last exercised.  Judging by the laundry, it’s been a few weeks. While I’m loving the extra money, who wouldn’t; but I ‘ve been so busy that I’m forgetting to pay bills.  Although it needs to be done, and it was on the schedule, don’t get me wrong I’m not mad about it; but spring cleaning has passed me by.

Surprisingly, for the second year in a row, I forgot my blog’s birthday.  Last year it snuck up on me, but this time, I knew it was coming up and the next thing I remember it had passed.  April 22 I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!) turned 2 years old.

No excuses. There’s no time for feelings.  I need to set a blog schedule and an official “work” schedule.   If not, I know I will find myself working all the time – the beauty of working from home.  Without a balance… there is no balance.

I’ve already decided that I’m not going to force the situation.  It either works for me or I don’t work at all. Therefore, aside from a few things that NEED to be purchased, and a few things I WANT to buy – I’m sticking to the status quo.  Like the saying goes, If it ain’t broke – don’t fix it.


I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!)
