Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 4th day of October, 2018.

Well into the first week of October.

Darkness in the mornings takes a bit of getting used to …. but the temperatures have been okay.

Perhaps a bit cooler than a “normal” fall day.

But really what is the norm anymore?

We enjoyed a beautiful walk last night with our friend ….. chatting about life.

As we walked the leaves scrunched under our feet.

Alvin looks so cute walking through piles of leaves (especially the ones still out front).

Bad Momma has not raked them as yet.

Just no energy when I get home from work.

To go for a walk and make supper and clean up and get ready for the next day is about all I can do.

Now something is clearly wrong with this picture.

I am old school in that I think I am “super woman” and if there is more to do, I will find a way to do it.

Like working through breaks, starting early and sometimes working a bit later.

Between conversations with myself this morning and my friend last night.

I realized that I am doing more harm than good by not taking breaks.

Not good for physical or mental health.

It does not give an accurate picture of the work load or what can be done in a regular day.

If we are working “hard” during the rest of the day …. that is enough.

That is all that I will say as I try to keep this post not work related.

Sometimes though you just have to get things off your “chest.”

 

Well Mr. Alvin had me up at first about 3:30 a.m. ……

He is definitely off his clock.

He ate early before 4:00 a.m.

Went outside.

Anyway, we did manage to score some snoozes on the sofa.

Now it is almost time to leave for work.

 

I am taking a book and will be leaving my desk at break times to read.

No interruptions and will get that time that I need and earn.

 

Have an awesome Thursday.

Special Hello to: my fellow humans who put in extra time at their job – realize that often times it goes unnoticed and really does more harm than good.  Take time for you.

Always, Carol & Alvin
