First of all I must tell you that I am up way too late to be held accountable for anything I am about to say. My son went to Idaho this weekend to visit his BFF (do boys have BFFs?) Curtie. Once upon a time he lived across the street from us and it was little boy bliss to have your best bud available at almost anytime. Since we both have moved Curtie has yet to be replaced. Don't think he ever will. It's a good an bad thing I think. I wish for my son to have that close relationship and feel like he has access to a great friend at anytime. It just stinks that his buddy is so far away.
I digress, I'm sitting here feeling sorry for myself because I have to work alot this week. What's that you say? Crazy Lady? ... You are correct! Why in a recession when people are hurting for work am I having such an attitude about working? I do this all the time you know. Its totally stupid of me. Crazy.
Being a freelancer has its pros and cons for sure. People always say, "Cool you get to work whenever you want." Yeah, I'd like to think that, but the reality is, that my bank account dictates when I work not my "want" button. Yes, I am at the mercy of the almighty dollar. It's Feast or Famine people, you gotta take everything you can get. When the opportunity comes you have to gobble it up while the gobblin is good.
Don't get me wrong, love/like my job! If I have to work, this is what I'll do.... (for now). Who knows what the future will bring. I see change ahead, I think Minka will concure. (if you haven't met Minka, you need to). What that change will be, I've yet to figure out. Deep down, I envy Stay at Home Moms. I tried to be one once, but guess what I was? Crazy! Yup thats me, sad I know. Maybe its that whole you want what you don't have. I wanna career, I wanna stay home, I wanna career, I wanna stay home... Crazy!
Okay I'm seriously rambling. Anyway I'm blessed to be working, thank you HF for the work. Pitty party over...!
See you all next week when I'm NOT working and freaking out because my calendar is empty.
