Packing everything in like sardines in a tin can
Friday, March 25, 2011
I started blogging about being exhausted. I'm always so tired and I have no idea why. But it's Friday--I don't want to be all "blah" and miserable on a Friday. Fridays are good days. No, they're GREAT days!
Today is the birthday of one of my co-workers, so we're all going out for lunch. I'm really excited. We're having Greek.
After lunch, I am going to a facility that caters to single pregnant women and helps them get back on their feet and gives them support during their pregnancies. Two of us from work are giving a presentation there on finding work and embracing their futures so they can continue to care for the beautiful gifts they've been blessed with.
After that (and I mean RIGHT after that) I have an interview on the other side of the city (so I somehow have to safely book it across town through Friday traffic--Yikes! Wish me luck!). Yes, I have a job and I love it, but as this is "Pay Off Our Debt Year," I want to get a little extra income so that we can pay it off even quicker. (Our debt is coming down nicely, too. We paid off my Canada Student Loan last week. Next is Ryan's, then our computer, then our credit cards and student lines of credit followed by the car. This is going to be an amazing year! We're gonna live like no one else now so we can live like no one else later--debt free!)
My interview today will be for Respite. I'm really excited. It's not what I went to school for, but I have so much experience working as a caregiver, it just makes sense.
Then, this evening, we're having my sister-in-law and her boyfriend over for games. Tomorrow we're going swimming and grocery shopping with another couple and their adorable baby. Sunday I have a baby shower which I still have to do some baking for. I also have a story to write so I have a few interviews to do sometime this weekend. I think that's it.
Well, at least I kind of know why I'm tired all the time--I'm really busy! That makes me feel better. Here I was thinking that I've got some crazy medical condition or that I'm having an adverse side effect to my meds, but no, I'm just living and it's tiring! I can sleep when I'm dead, though, right? In the meantime, I just want to enjoy the ride and get in as much as possible.
