Strangely, before I had started the work that occupied almost all my time for three consecutive weeks, I had no inkling that I actually had that much time on my hands.
I had never felt busy, but neither had I felt “free”.
But after settling in nicely with Joshua in the day, and working until the wee hours of the night, I found myself struggling to occupy myself with something last week.
Suddenly it’s like I had too much time on my hands and I had nothing to do.
Thus the overzealous cleaning that prompted pelvic and ligament pain. And 2 hours spent making risotto, oven-baked salmon and lime jelly for Monday’s dinner. And today, I am looking for something to do again.
Somehow, idling my spare time away online just isn’t peachy anymore. I want… more. So thus I started gaming again on Hubs’ Windows, the DS and the Wii.
God knows why, but I was actually starting to enjoy clearing up a pile of work slowly – knowing I’ll get paid for it eventually – and planning my time nicely to fit everything in.
The only part I didn’t enjoy was not being able to spend family time with Hubs and Josh over the weekend.
I think I may secretly be a workaholic. 😆
