What a beautiful, crisp, fall afternoon in Kentucky. The air has just the right amount of nip in it to be enticing but not so much so that you have to be entirely bundled up either. I know I am looking forward to the 5 o’clock hour when I can be off for the next 3 days in a row. My intentions are to be venture out to Louisville over the weekend with my folks and perhaps do some much-needed catching up on a few things at home too.
Sometimes I really wish that I could just have at least one day a week off from the drudge of work. I know that it helps to pay for the things that I need and want in life but it also gets to me some days with the same old thing, all the time. I really feel as though lately that I need a punch in the arm, so to speak, or something to help liven things up, in a good way, of course. On the other hand, certainty has always been something that I have cherished as well. There’s something very comforting about knowing that your schedule will be pretty much the same each day.
Ahh well, just one of those small conundrums of life that I like to ponder. I guess you could say that on some days I wish that I could have it all. I’ve always said that I love the idea of getting paid for a 40 hour work week but actually only working 20 hours and those hours would be 8-12 a.m. each day, no nights or weekends, and the ease and ability to take off whenever I wanted to. Yes, I know that I ask too much probably, but the older I get the more I wonder if I made the right decision sometimes in my career path. I certainly appreciate what it took to get to this point in my life as I have worked very hard but I also now realize that once I’ve achieved this point that it seems as though I am stuck with nowhere else to go. I would very much like to have a goal to work towards again. I believe that would help me out of my slump.
Anyway, this is just one of those days where I had a few minutes on my break time and thought I would start writing and see what came from my brain, down my arm and through the ends of my fingers. I never know what may inspire me from one moment to the next. Either way, I know I need to write more often. I apologize to those that have decided to follow me on this blog as I haven’t kept up my end of the bargain very well. I will try to work harder to post something at least once per week.
Yes, that will be my new goal. Thanks for listening and posting as always….
