life is funny, last week i worked fifteen hours and this week i’m working 26 and next week too. (i need to work 20 specifically teaching which does not include travel and down time between clients… my scheduled work week is from 3 on monday to 2 on saturday and i work most evenings and every morning early.)
it was great, i got wednesday evening and friday afternoon/evening off!
anyway i’m hoping to get to a state where i work 25 hours a week and don’t have to work late into the evening on the same morning as i start at 6:30am.
more than that i’m hoping to take a vacation in february. first one since i went to new york with my sister just before tr and i split up. wow.
an actual vacation.
what the heck are the odds?
interestingly my friend the rolfer told me it would take five years to get to the point where i had a waiting list, and i’m at three and a half years since i finished my certification and four since i taught my first lesson (hi othercat!)
she was right too because i’m just about at that waiting list point but not quite because i’m still trying too much to find some savings. i think i might need to spend less on my education if i want to do that but that’s hard to countenance.
that said, 20 hours a week is a nice life and a consistent 25 is savings… go schedule!
i’m now wandering toward the three month mark with nayrb which is an interesting time as well. it’s that point where you start to really look at the person you’re dating and see them more clearly.
you notice the little behaviours which are equally endearing and annoying depending entirely on your mood at the time. you see the edges and the funny habits and the attitudes you may or may not like.
you see where communication is full and where it breaks down and, if you’re me, you start to think. you notice what it’s like when you’re quiet together and when you’re both cranky and you wonder how that will work when you know each other better.
but most fun of all you start to believe just a little.
you start to think that maybe this might be someone that you could have around for a while. in fact you begin to grow accustomed to their presence in your life and their voice in your ear before you sleep at night.
you learn the sound of breath and the cadence of speech and the little private jokes and you start to feel that you are actually connecting deeply to another human being.
and it’s fun.
oh god the leafs are so bad.
i love the leafs i really do but i might pretend that this year is a hockey strike.
the boys aren’t playing and i just wish that someone would light a fire under their asses.
my lovely client B has decided to watch this year for the soap opera surrounding the leafs rather than for the team itself.
this strikes me as a great plan.
i really really really love my job.
it’s the best job ever.
one day only on february second the magic of hillside comes to the sleeman centre in guelph…
AND???? xavier rudd is playing!!!
if you’ll excuse me, i have to go meet a beautiful man for dinner…
