Hello – First I wanted to thank all of you for the birthday wishes!! Thanks very much. It is greatly appreciated. Well it is Wednesday morning and I have already worked 33 hours this week. I worked 9 on Sunday, 11 hours on Monday and 13 on Tuesday. I am a bit tired and unmotivated today, but will try and work a few hours from home this afternoon. I will not be working tonight since I have bible study. I am really looking forward to going.
I am really trying to get all caught up at work as the next budget season is just about to hit and I am not caught up from the end of year budgets yet!! I am sure I sound like such a workaholic, which to some regards is probably true. I just always want to do my best at whatever I am doing. My employer is making it easier for me to work more of course. They have now extended the hours I can be in the building at night. The alarm system is turned on later. So some nights I can work until midnight even!! Sad…but true..I have done it. The other thing that is happening that I am really excited about. I will have VPN access to my computer at work. I can currently access my email, but now I will be able to actually log onto my work computer from home! I will have access to my entire computer and the drives! Hopefully that will mean I can work at home in the evening vs. being at the office until so late at night. I really do love what I do….and there are moments like last night that make it all worth it. I have to transfer the children I work with to the adult unit when they turn 18..which has become more and more difficult for me. I had my last meeting with a family last night. I have been working with them for almost 10 years. Luckily I still have other children in this particular home that I started a few years ago so I will be around there some still. I will miss this family……..it feels good to know that I have worked well for this family and made a difference for them.
Today I hoped to sleep in since I was working from home…NOPE…I was up by 6:00 and showered and dressed by 6:30. I dropped Tommy off at Preschool and had to run home again to get a swimsuit for him since they were having a beach party. His auntie will pick him up so I can work from home.
Well this that said…I guess I better get to work. I will have worked alot of extra hours this week, so I will be saving them up to hopefully take a week off in February before the next budget season. Have a great day and I will check in with you all later!!
BTW – is anyone else having trouble with xanga??? Mine is so slow! ARGH!!
