I knew what I was doing when I did it and I did it anyway


I’m not sure why, but one week, I’ll have a perfectly productive week getting stuff done and the next, I’ll have so many things on my schedule that at some point mid way through Thursday, I have an intense desire to assume the fetal position immediately. Last night, I moved through to the “stunned”stage.


I know what I am doing to myself when I set up my schedule. I knew I shouldn’t plan an event the day after I was out for a recruiting colloquium for 2 days. At our invitational event last night, I was running on caffeine and fumes…had to tap into the reserves. I knew that when I went on vacation, booking the red-eye was a bad idea. I’ve got nobody to blame because it was all avoidable (though I have to say that the event last night was great). I’m just one of those people that needs their 9 hours of sleep and some concentrated downtime with nobody else around (except the dog). I have to say, though, at the end of a week like that there is a certain sense of accomplishment (kind of like after a long workout). The funny thing is that the only items on my schedule today are a trip to the dentist to get fitted for my new night guard (I’m a teeth grinder…regardless of my self-imposed schedule) and a trip to the gym…the rest of the day is all about catching up and reminding myself that you don’t have to do it all in one week.

    Thankfully I’m married to a wonderful woman that protects me from "myself" — otherwise both my feet would be full of bullet  holes! (^_^)

    Sick, isn’t it? I logged on about an hour before that. Wanted to get some e-mail time in before my 8AM dentist appt. I’ve officially become a morning person.

    I’m not always like this, I swear. Next week, I’ll be taking some time out of the office. And I am going to the gym today at 3 for some me time (or some "me whining time")
