Life Lately...

Friday, sweet Friday, I am so glad you're finally here.

I don't really have any special plans for the weekend, but I have definitely been looking forward to it since, oh, Monday. I never thought I'd be the type of person who works for the weekend, but life lately has just been so crazy that all I want to do is sprawl out on the couch and watch Downton Abby on Netflix. This is why:



This is real life, guys. Pie charts don't lie. It's math. Ninety percent of my weekday is spent "working." Between a full-time job (dreadful two hour commute time included), playing house and trying to stay healthy... I somehow also have to juggle five freelance design projects. More work, more deadlines, more stress. The highlight of my day is the hour and a half spent with Christopher, eating dinner and watching a few episodes of Big Bang Theory (thank you, Keitha, for our newest TV on DVD obsession.)

I'm not complaining about being busy... I enjoy my job and all the little gigs I pick up along the way. I'd take busy over bored any day. The thing is, even with such a full day, I don't feel like I'm accomplishing much with my life. I make lists but never finish them, there are always dirty dishes in the sink, and never enough money in the bank.

Anyone else feel this way? I don't know about you, but I'm holding tight to the delusion that spring will come quickly and the world will be full of sunshine, purpose and free time. And until then, at least we have the weekend.

When you need it, Season 4 is available :-). And I agree, Spring needs to get here double quick.

I feel you lady, I feel you! Don't worry it won't be like this forever and spring will arrive and that sunshine and flora in your life will make all the difference!

You know, if you cut out all that exercise and cleaning house time, you'd have a lot more time to obsessively watch TV series. That's what I do anyway. ;) PS Downton Abbey and Big Bang Theory are my favorite!

@Keitha -- Yes please! We just finished up Season 3 this weekend :)

@Amber -- I like your style. Cleaning and exercising are usually the first things I cut when I'm feeling super stressed. And I replace them with more tv series watching, of course.
