I’m exhausted. Like bone tired, even after what I feel like is a good night’s sleep. I’m burning the candle at both ends because one of my employee positions is vacant, but the work doesn’t slow down, it just falls harder on the two of us who remain. I think there’s a light at the end of the tunnel though, as interviews are Thursday!
There’s a cold front blowing in, well right about now, that’s supposed to bring below-freezing temps, high winds and maybe even snow… I can’t decide if I want this or not. The snow part – I definitely know I don’t want the bitter cold and the wind! I guess it’s fine as long as the power doesn’t go out… Aforementioned interviews on Thursday and all…
I need a break in a bad way, but the combination of the workload, plus still not being able to go anywhere anyway keeps me trying to buckle down and wait it out. Who else is feeling this way? Do you have any brilliant ideas to break up the monotony?
Last Friday was two years since my dad died. Most people don’t remember the day specifically, and I suppose you wouldn’t, but I dreaded it for weeks ahead of time. I was working, so it wasn’t as hard as I feared, but the days after got progressively harder for some reason that I can’t really explain. Yesterday was the hardest – low, low energy… I miss him so much still.
I have an meeting with my financial advisor next week to see how I’m progressing towards my early retirement goals. After my horse died last March, I put extra money to my retirement fund, because, well, horses are expensive. I’m excited to find out what that means in terms of the long game. I literally cannot wait until I can retire! COVID and lockdown has certainly put that into even sharper focus for me. I’m ready to really enjoy what I’ve worked hard to build.
