Lounging around 120/365

23.10.2012 6:23pm

I had this massive rant prepared in my head for this blog post… but it’s now a few hours after I had a wobbly and an hour of mindless TV watching and a huge glass of red wine has dulled my argument slightly.

My mood started because I worked out that I’d spent almost 3 hours in traffic today.  I’m completely over spending my life in my car… not sure this drive to Sandton is quite worth it anymore… it’s not just the traffic, it’s the time away from the kids, it’s the stupid politics and the drama and continuous uncertainty… I’m over it!!

I’m over feeling guilty about not spending time with the kids because I’m in the freaking traffic, and then spending less time with them on weekends because I’m running a business… which I now cannot stop doing or else they can’t go to the school they go to or live in the house we live in.  And don’t get me wrong, I love that I’m actually doing something that I’m being appreciated for… I love that I’m being creative and it’s all about me.  But man it’s tiring.

I just want to lounge around on our new couch downstairs… just for a few days… and I’m upstairs blogging when I should be editing.  And about the blogging part… I’m getting bored with my 365 project and I’m only 1/3 of the way through it… not sure what I’m going to do about that but I am  determined not to stop although I may only blog the images once a week.

Think I need more wine… and get back to Lightroom and a few wedding images.

    Oh Jeanette! I understand your frustration. The trouble is that the traffic issue is SUCH a waste of time. I don’t really know how to solve it, but I do know that I feel just like you do – in general – you know what I mean!! At least you have something to fall back on! BIG hug!

    I totally get what you are saying today Jeanette! I am so over work at the moment, and I don’t even work on the weekend like you do, I don’t know how you do it all?
    I was this close to resigning today but when I stopped being emotional and started being rational I realised I just couldn’t unless I took the kids out of their private school, we stopped going on holidays, we stopped eating out…etc.

    PS. I love your new lounge suite.
