Done

Finished.  Finished work for 2 weeks.  I feel absolutely exhausted.  This ‘wedding season’ has taken way too much out of me.  I’m sure I’ll just sleep for the first few days.  I was thinking tonight how I can’t wait to go on maternity leave so I can rest.  Ironic, isn’t it?  I go on maternity leave so I can get more rest than what I’m getting working.  Something is wrong with this picture.

 And I’m resentful of my personality type right now.  I find it hard to say ‘no’.  I feel responsible for everything.  This makes me the kind of person who could be taken advantage of.  Where other people might have just said they weren’t about to do the work asked of them, I just suck it up because I think if I don’t do it, then it will fall apart.  And I can’t let that happen because I’m responsible.  And on top of all that I don’t want people to be mad at me, so I don’t complain very forcefully about it either.

 I hate feeling like this, but hopefully a week at the lake will go a long way.  Ok, I’m done talking about work now.  I’m not supposed to think about it for the next 2 weeks.
