Lazy Sunday

Weekends are a funny thing.  We look forward to them with such anticipation, making grand and sometimes not so grand plans for the TWO. DAYS. OFF. that we have to do whatever we want.  Me, I usually come up with a list of plans/to-dos because I find if I don't, I lose track and end up doing nothing and before I know it, it's Sunday night and the disappointment of having "wasted" a weekend settles in and I carry that into my Monday.

This weekend's list wasn't particularly ambitious: there's my usual laundry/marketing/cleaning/lunch prep for the week ahead (check/to do/check/to do), massage (much needed!), family lunch, read the paper (seriously - sometimes I "forget"),  update my online profile, yoga (which I'm going to skip this weekend in order to), (and) prepare for a second round of job interviews.

My sense of ambivalence and dissatisfaction at work has been ongoing for quite awhile now but I've been too complacent to do anything about it because it's comfortable...and comfortable isn't always the best thing.  The more I think about it, the more I feel that this new opportunity is the perfect role for me at this point in my life.  It would mean a major change in lifestyle, but it doesn't have to be forever - it could just be a strategic stepping stone - and I just have to remind myself of that...

I'm off then to the market for groceries, some cooking in the afternoon, and a lot of mental prep work to get into the right headspace for my interviews. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
