Guys, the last few weeks have been tough. We’ve been battling illness nonstop in our house and our calendars are filled to the top. Work has been stressful and a bit insane with one project going live, another having issues and another one starting. I don’t talk much about my day job on here because I firmly live in the camp that believes there should be a separation of work and life. It requires extra planning and coordination – two cell phones, two calendars, etc – but I’ve learned that I need to be able to shut off at night and on the weekends in order to give my all during the week. Project management can be a very high stress job and right now I am just in the middle of one of those periods. It’ll pass. Issues will be resolved, timelines will be restored and my teams will come together, but it can be tough while in the midst of the storm.
Having a sick household and some crazy schedules certainly doesn’t lessen the load so I’ve had to pull back in areas – like writing. And laundry. And cooking. Sorry family. I always have half a dozen articles and posts in various forms of edit ready to go but at the end of the day my mind just isn’t fresh enough to finish anything. soooooo tiiirrrreeeeddd 🙁
But, HEY!, it’s Thursday and one of my most favorite holidays is tomorrow!
Because, how can anyone not like St. Patrick’s Day???? You don’t have a million gifts to buy or schedules to coordinate and you eat corned beef while drinking beer all while surrounded by my favorite color, green. Perfection.
So all of this is a round about way to say hi to you all and to let you know that while I am currently filled with daydreams of warm sunlight on my face and up to my ears in craziness – life will settle soon. Until then, I will share with you a pretty picture of a palm tree and I hope you all have great and amazing plans for St. Patrick’s Day. We aren’t exactly sure what we are doing yet so I will be stalking your Insta and Pinterest feeds for craft, date and outfit ideas. Don’t let me down friends 😉
