If

If you are the praying type, I would appreciate your prayers.

I am tired. Weary. I haven’t had more than 3 days off in 7 months, and I’m just plain worn out. August will be a long month for me, splitting my time between 2 projects. I’ll be over allocated.

I’m off for a week at the start of August, but it’s to go to Montana for the new great, and I’m not sure how relaxing it will actually be.

I would give, well, just about anything really for a week to sit around the house and do absolutely nothing.

Unfortunately, that’s not likely, at least not this year.

In the interim, I am scattered, disorganized and utterly un-enthused about everything. I am oversubscribed and under motivated, and that just doesn’t work in my job. I need a bit of help gutting through. I’m tired.

    Faxing prayers, mojo, strength, fortitude and just a wee sip of scotch.

    Sending an infusion of motivation and energy. Oh, and another wee sip of scotch to add to Needles’.

    I’ve often wondered why you push yourself so. At this stage of your life, with your references and capabilities, couldn’t you find a job that you can do for the love of it? Just wondering, that’s all. I am a hard worker, but you, my dear, make me look lazy.

    I am and I will.

    You’re strong! You can handle it!

    (But I’ll hope for a break for you anyway)

    prayers will be coming your way (they will have less far to travel since I am actually in your province, possibly in your city (the capital) at the moment! I hope you will have some restful nights – and is there any other thing you can do – yoga or something?? I doubt you’ll get much sleep with the little great visit. Thinking of you.

    Be Strong

    Make sure you bend and not break.

    I’m saying prayers.

    And to carve out time, when you can. And when you think you can’t. And to planning imaginary vacations. I got through a year on a vacation a week. I planned somewhere every week. Every week it involved me doing absolutely nothing while I visited some place beautiful.

    My sister recently watched my kids for 4 days while I was at a certification course. She apparently went home and slept for an entire day. Well, she woke up for dinner then went back to bed. She said her back hurt as the little wanted her to hold him, all the time (not so typical of him). So I’m thinking that the greats might not be that restful (fun and enjoyable yes, restful not so much).
