I haven't been blogging much lately, which is mainly the result of being too busy with the new job. It feels like I am always either getting ready for work, going to work, at work, returning from work, or recovering from work...each day, every day, 5 days in a row. And I'm exhausted.
I counted it up....right now, I spend an average of 12 hours a day devoted to work in some way. An hour (or more) getting ready for it; 20 minutes driving to it; 10 hours at it (8am to 6pm on avg), and another 20 minutes coming home from it. I try to get 7-8 hours of sleep each night, if I can. So that leaves 4-5 hours a day....out of 24....for myself. A whopping 17% of my day, not work-related. Yee ha. Don't spend it all in one place, eh?
While I need to work right now for various reasons that are beyond my control, and I am ever thankful for this job, it does suck the life right out of my day. Hence the blog is sorely neglected. *sigh*
