Neglectful

I'm getting pretty bad at this whole blogging on a regular basis thing...but here I am at present.

I'm sooo PMS-ing and I've got all the stomach gurgles and weird gastric cramps...not to mention my eating was rather unauthorized last week. Oh well, I'm back on the wagon currently and trying to up my activity even though all I want to do is sit in my living room floor and eat french fries. That sooo won't happen...but I do have a nice rotisserie chicken waiting for me at home, and that should be nice with some greens on the side....I'm actually looking forward to it.

I've been feeling a bit guilty lately, because I'm cheating on my day job. I've been going on interviews with other corporations that want to pay me alot more to work for them. I've really got to consider it, as much as I adore my boss, I'm drowning in debt and making almost twice as much as my current salary is a big deal...if I make as much as projected, I'll be out of debt in 2-3 years. That's a huge goal for me. Then all the money from there, I can save and really concentrate on my singing career...and possibly going off to Europe to live & work.

James is at home and doing really well, I even got to talk to him the other day and he was in good spirits. So I have a positive feeling about his recovery. Thanks again to all of you and your well wishes...You're really the best.

Currently I'm at the point where I'm so overtired and overwhelmed that I'm ready to shut down and not do anything. I don't know how to avoid this mode...I tend to do that when I've been burning the candle at both ends. I guess I should just sleep and relax as much as I can and then get back on the busy highway that is my life...we all need a rest stop every now and then...right?!

Well...kudos to all and I look forward to catching up with you whom I've been neglecting.

Have a great day!

Hey Babycakes-

It's important to take a little time for yourself. Take a moment to breathe... even if it's just a little one. :)
And I know you might feel guilty about possibly leaving your job. You have to take care of YOU! It's nothing personal against your wonderful boss, just remember that.

Thanks for the very sweet words you left on my blog. Yes, it looks like I'm clear to sing with you this season. Could you email a rough outline of the details again?
Looking forward to it!

Oh, it's good to hear from you though!

We have a lot in common - namely pushing ourselves till we just collapse. I do hope you get some time to slow down and breathe...

Definitely do what you need to do for you, where the job is concerned. Loyalty is a beautiful thing, but I don't think it should preclude making a decision that just makes really good sense. It's the kind of thing you'd really be silly to pass up...as long as you won't be utterly miserable at the new place, of course.

I'm so glad James is doing so well! He's definitely in my thoughts and prayers - well, all of you are.

Hugs! Here's to feeling better and not eating the fries, though dear God those sound good right now...
