How sad is it that I don’t even have a picture for this post, because I was too busy working this week to take any? Ok, well I’m sad about it… I like my TGIF pictures!
This week was so busy that I couldn’t even find the time to write my February budget and goals post. The budget is done! The goals are in place! I just couldn’t squeeze in 45 minutes to write up an explanation for it. Instead, I finished what ended up being a 75-hour workweek – something I have since decided I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. When I wasn’t working, I was sleeping… oh, and trying to plan a bridal shower, finishing up the slides for my PechaKucha (tickets go on sale tomorrow!) and coordinating a trip to Toronto.
By Tuesday afternoon, I realized it had been days since I’d had any human interaction, and I was starting to go a little crazy. Even though I didn’t feel as though I could spare any time, I texted a friend and asked if she was free for coffee. Fortunately, she was – and our two hours of talking and laughing was enough to recharge my batteries, so to speak. Wednesday was another 17-hour day between my job + the contract work I started last week… but I worked and worked until I finished it. And now I’m done!
Man, did freedom taste good on Thursday. (Seriously, I finally had time to meet a friend who was in town from Toronto for dinner, and it was so good!) I am really happy I accepted that contract work when I did, because the extra money will help me accomplish some goals over the next few months… but I think that was a one-time deal. Working those kind of hours cannot be healthy. And if I keep taking on more things like that, there’s a good chance I’ll be single for the rest of my life, lol.
The low of my week was just having an almost-meltdown on Tuesday. All good now.
The high of my week was being asked if I wanted to rework some of my old blog posts for The Huffington Post Canada! And having my first post go live! It’s not a new post, and likely none of them will be… this is just a great opportunity to share some of my content with a new audience.
blog post I loved was project I am loving is The Stranger Project. My friend Colin launched it on January 1st and it’s been getting some serious press – for good reason. Before I go to bed every night, I always check Instagram to read about the convo he had with that day’s stranger. Check it out.
The best money I spent was $19.95 at Chill Winston last night. The mac and cheese + dessert were delicious! Although, I still kind of regret not ordering the $26 cheese plate…
My plans this weekend include catching up on sleep, catching up on all of your blogs (I’m sorry I’ve been a terrible blog friend!), and hanging out with friends and their kids (my “niece” and “nephew”) who will be visiting from Victoria! I am so, so, so excited to see them. <3
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
