Being an adult is hard. I mean you have to do laundry, make dinners, be responsible, and pay bills. Well how are you supposed to pay those bills without a job? Chances are you won't be able to. I am very thankful to have finally found a job after 1.5 years of searching and moving out of 2 different states. But having a job means the luxuries of being unemployed are gone.
I can no longer sleep in until about noon I never did this anyway.
Yoga pants and sweat pants are not appropriate work attire and I miss that daily uniform.
I can no longer snuggle with my puppy 24/7. I feel like I am neglecting my poor baby but I bet she loves to bark all day long without getting yelled at.
Fitness and exercise is a thing of the past. I like the way I feel after a good workout and I notice that I sleep better as well. But spending 1 hour on the road and 9 hours at work, going home or to the gym to workout seems like a second job. I am working on including 3-4 days a week of fitness as well as joining some fitness classes at work but in reality, I would rather go home, sit on the couch and watch some reality tv - Big Brother!!
Why don't we talk about the task of working while still maintaining a blog. It's a lot of freaking work. Like a lot of work. If exercise wasn't my second job, blogging sure is. BJ, before job, I used to blog each and everyday. Reading my favorite blogs, researching new blogs and topics, as well as writing my own posts. Now all of my blogging gets done in one day. I sit with my beer, wine, and/ or cocktail and nail out 4-5 posts in a few hours. I wish I still had time to read more blogs but now I get to really catch up on my all time favorite 5 blogs are you one of them?.
This little sucker called an iron, has made an entrance into my life again. I would much rather he sit on a shelf and collect dust rather than actually having to use him once a week. Good thing I can wear casual clothing all the time to work and I don't have too many items to iron - maybe just 2 shirts a week.
