(written last Tuesday night)
So, here I sit, the night before I have to go back to work after almost two weeks off. Dang, it is hard. And, no offense to all the normal people out there, but it is not like I am going back to work to a normal 8-5, M-F job...now starts tax season. Goodie. 60, 70, 80 hour weeks here I come...hopefully less than last year with this new firm, but I want to make a good impression, so I am not setting myself up to fail by thinking I won't be working a lot. I think it is funny when people give me a hard time about my part time schedule...CPA's total hours at most firms for the year are 2,400...the normal person only works 2,080. Thats 300+ extra hours we put in...not that we are necessarily paid more for it...I guess we just like the pain or something. I used to work with some people that worked 3,000 hours a year! They loved it. Insane, I tell you. but yes, back to the grind.
I seriously wonder how I am going to get out of bed tomorrow.
Evan was very out of sorts tonight. Came home, ate some food, and just started screaming at me. I put him to bed. He immediately fell asleep.
I am kind of cranky myself too...I think knowing I have to go to work tomorrow looming over me is causing it. I think I will curl up with a book and read for a couple hours.
I got a few scrapbook pages done today, and tried a new Mac and Cheese recipe..very cheesy, very heavy. We are going to be eating leftovers of it for two weeks. Good thing I am jogging again.
Nathan tonight said on the way home, "mom, I want to go to kindergarten, but I can't, because I don't know the way? do you? Or do we need a map?" To which I said, "Nathan, I know how to get there, but you are too little for kindergarten." He said, "oh, I guess I don't need a map then."
I should also post his Christmas morning breakfast prayer...wish I had had the video camera. He sang, "Jesus loves everyone...Everyone loves Jesus...Everyone loves Christmas...If you are not naughty, you will get presents." Amen.
