If We Were Having Coffee – Spring Break!

If we were having coffee I would ask you if noticed anything different about me. I would stand in front of you and wait to see if you could tell that….I have finally gotten new glasses! I am so excited, it’s been over two years since my last exam and my old pair had been through so much, including what I call the “hot tub incident” which left several deep scratches.

But now I have a new pair which are bigger and have much better, much more resilient lenses. Hopefully this time I can keep them in good condition but I also hope not to have to wait another 2 years before I can get another eye exam too.

If we were having coffee would tell you that last week was a really hard one. I started waking up at 3:30 AM for work and at first it wasn’t so bad but by the end of the week it had kicked my ass. Add to that the fact that I had gotten a bit overworked from my bosses. My team hasn’t been very accountable so I have taken on more work than usual and I wasn’t happy about it.

So when we had our meeting this week and I kinda let loose about how I have been feeling and everyone was a bit shocked, my boss included. I hope things will change for the better now.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that luckily, this week is spring break and since I work for a school district I am technically off until April 6th. But because I work for a school district there is always so much to do and everything is always changing so I will probably work at least 3 or 4 days out of the week.

I do plan to take it easy and focus as much of my time as I can on getting my A to Z Challenge posts written and edited for as many days in April as possible. I also forgot that I had joined The Great Villain Blogathon and had signed up to do two posts so I have to work on that too. I am still keeping my own posting schedule of at least 5 or 6 posts a week too. So in April you will see about twice the usual posts from me, I apologize in advance.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that my birthday is fast approaching (another thing to worry about in April) and I have no idea how to celebrate it. I am turning 30 and I figure I should do something kinda big right? Or maybe I should celebrate it low-key? I have no idea what to do nd I only have a few weeks to get it together and let my friends know!

I am trying not to panic….

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had better get going, today is cleaning day here at the homestead and there is a lot to do. Because I work such long hours there isn’t much time between work and the need for sleep to keep this place clean and clutter free. The weekends are for cleaning and this weekend there is more than usual….bleck!

Thank you for stopping by, the coffee was wonderful. I hope that you enjoy the rest of your day, remember that Monday is just hours away so take in every bit of what’s left of the weekend that you can.

  1. Oh, what villains did you sign up to write about?

    Glad you’ll get to take a bit of a break from school and that you were able to get out some of your frustrations with the job. :)

  2. Sounds like a busy week!! We seem to have a lot in common, haha. I’m also turning 30 this year. :) Congrats on the new glasses~! I’m going to have to get some in the near future, I think. Words are starting to look fuzzy at a distance.

    1. Interesting, you’re turning 30 too? I’m curious, how do you feel about it? I’m trying not to think of it as a bad thing but some days I think I will miss being in my 20s…

      1. I’m looking forward to it, honestly. I’ll feel more comfortable in a 30-year-old’s skin, without all the stress and anxiety of the 20-something worrying about reaching their 30’s (haha). 30 is an awesome age. We’ve built up enough experience to really know who we are, and can now take that to make what we will later consider the deepest foundations of our life. :) It’s going to be wonderful!
