I feel like I have so many things to do in the next two weeks – and I really do – but I get overwhelmed every time I think about starting. Things are in progress and I am very, very blessed. Sometimes I just need to blow off some steam.
I have my cleaning list made. I have my grocery list made. I have my Thanksgiving menu made. My Christmas shopping is 90% done. I have my family.
On the homefront, I have a wedding to go to this evening – at the Baltimore Zoo – it should be super cool. In the meantime though, we’re all battling an annoying cold. I have two kids under 9 to keep occupied today. The cleaning list needs to get started.
On the workfront, I have my CISSP exam in 11 days. A good friend is putting in her two week notice on Monday. I have been faced with numerous unethical issues over the last two weeks which I still need to sort out. I’m still really angry and disappointed at how my last project ended.
I am feeling every one of my 41 years today.
Then I look at what happened in Paris yesterday and I know my issues are small in comparison to the grief and fear the world is faced with today.
I know that I will soon get up and get started because that’s what I do but I needed to take a minute just to vent, even if it was only to my computer
