I usually don’t like the summer months- but I would give anything for it to be August again. For one thing me and my BFF had a trip away from it all in Windham, NY. It was just the two of us- and it’s been a long time since we spent some quiet time together.
This is a picture of us during one of our hikes. It was a total of 2 hours hiking, and hour and a half kayaking then another 2 1/2 hour hike. It was the most active weekend I’ve had in ages but I didn’t mind- it was fun!
It was so much easier when we were younger to find time for our friends but now that we are edging close to the age of 30, I find that we really have to make a conscious effort. I haven’t seen ChuChu** in about a month and darn it- I miss her! Which brings me back to the fact that work has been draining me and taking me away from those I love most.
Well at least I have my Huzbie** and my Lil’sis**. I don’t really see them too often either. (Ok I know.. I live with Huzbie- but he is often buried in work or studying for his exam- so eventhough he’s here, he’s not really here) I think it’s time to gather everyone together for some quality time. Because everyone knows that work isn’t going to get easier.
** Um.. yeah. obviously these aren’t their real names. duh.
The past couple of weeks have been hard for me. Work has just gotten to me lately. And the more I was at work- the more I wanted to leave…. and never come back. I just kept repeating my mantra to myself- "Work is what I do.. not who I am." It’s something that I keep having to remind myself. Don’t take everything at work too seriously because it does not define who I am. But it’s just so hard feed myself such optimistic words when I am an eternal pessimist.
