A Slave to the Grind

I feel like there is too much stuff going on in my life for me to be working. Actually, let me rephrase that. I KNOW there is too much stuff going on in my life for me to be working. What sucks is that I really have to work. I would love to stay home and hang out with my sister and my nephew Stink. I would love to be able to give my sister some time off so she can rest. I would love to be able to spend days with her and have the chance to try and make her laugh or smile. But I can't because I have to work. I would love to be able to take a few days off so I can get my house in order and get things fixed so we might have more success selling it. But I can't because I have to work. I would love to be able to be a good friend and fly to Texas for a weekend so I can be there for a friend who needs me. But I can't because I have to work. This whole work thing is really getting in the way of what I want to do and it's driving me mad.

So instead of being able to give my sister, my house and my friend 100% of me, I have to settle for bringing my sister coffee in the morning, cleaning my house after work, and calling my friend before I go to sleep. I don't like that all of the things that really matter have to be squeezed in around work.

Thanks for the coffee this morning. Just having you pop by to bring it helped so much. It gave me some strength...

work is a PITA--not that I would know! But, you are a great sister, and doing the best job you can as a friend. I am sure she understands and knows you'd be there in an instant if you could--bringing her coffee--or favorite drink.

Not only you are a great sister, you have a great daughter. It's the little things you do make our days. I love you

Yes work sucks
