The Office

I am slightly addicted to this show.

You should be too : )


So very tired.

I am just very tired lately.  I get home from work and I feel like I'm completely drained.

I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I'm still adjusting to my new job.  I'm not used to working 40+ hours a week.

And I miss being able to do everything I was doing before I started working full time.

I miss having more than 2 days off in a row.  I miss cooking dinner every night.  I miss our apartment being clean and organized.  I miss having the time to create stuff...

Seriously, all I want is time to paint and clean and organize my guest room... and make it pretty.

I know it sounds like I'm whining.  But I'm not.  I love my job.  It's just very stressful right now and I need to vent.

Ahhhhhh... I feel better already  : )

So, I've been trying to think of things to do that will make me feel better... more energetic... more full of life.

I made a list.

  • Reading my Bible more often
  • Spending more time outside
  • Exercising... especially Pilates
  • Being creative
  • Blogging more often : )

And lots of other random stuff... but I think I'll start with just those few. 

I guess it's just a matter of making time to do things that I love to do.
