I am so freakin' stressed. Work is killing me and this project may kick my butt.
Good news on that front, though. Sent the first draft of the WBT to my client... she LIKES IT! I have a few edits to make, activities to add, and a couple of slides to expand on. But for the most part it is right on target.
Every year my mom and step-dad rent a condo at Myrtle Beach, SC. They have asked us every year to join them and I've always said no. Except this year... many, many months ago - before the issues with Carl's work and our subsequent money issues - I agreed to go.
So, tomorrow morning, J-man, Bug and I are headed to the beach for a few days. Carl is staying home to watch Dozer and Grimmy (because kennels are WAAAY too expensive) and work. All I need is gas money to get there. Once there it will be relaxing in the sand or at the pool. Food is provided... we are just going to do NOTHING.
I've almost backed out a couple of times, but have realized that I can't. I need to get away. I need to spend some quality time with my kiddos. I need to be away from work and stress.
I am taking my contract project work with me. I have tight deadlines so it has to get done. But I can work on that in the evenings or during down time.
I cannot wait. Seriously. My shoulders get all tense in anticipation.
And yes, Punkin is going with me. He is already in the car.
