TGIF

The weekend cannot come too quickly for me this week. What a doozy! We are hiring at work for our Alcohol and Other Drug Diversion Program and have been interviewing prospective employees, plus quarterly reports are due in three of my programs on Tuesday, and I received some slightly distressing (although not the end of the world) news from one of our partners, which I can’t really do anything about this week, but the stress of the meeting next week to clear things up is daunting. That coupled with the fact that I have been going to bed later than usual (what’s up 1:00 am on Wednesday night?), and having stressmares (which is not actually a nightmare, but a stressful, unsettling dream that wakes me up just about 5 am, an hour that feels too early to get up, but too late to go back to sleep, as I have to be up at 6) and well, there you have it.

This weekend my agenda is as follows: play, play, bake, dinner with friends, sleep, play, play, play with friends, cook dinner, sleep. I might throw in a little barn organization on Saturday if I feel up to it, but really, why bother? I’ll get more done next week if I relax this weekend, right?! And now, countdown to weekend!
