Work and Beans

Some days I struggle with work life balance more than others. Today is one of those days. It’s beautiful outside. I mean light marbled clouds in the big blue sky beautiful days. I mean Friday with only two conference calls type of beautiful days. I mean going to the GIANTS game tonight type of beautiful days. So, I decided to make all-day, simmer in a pot, forced to smell goodness chili for a BBQ tomorrow. Good idea? In retrospect, no. Now all I want to do is sit outside in the garden and eat chili.

I have what my husband and his friends call, the “Itis”. The Itis is basically when you can’t focus on anything worthwhile at work anymore. It’s the work equivalent of summer vacation for kids. You can taste freedom, but you have to wait a few more short hours. This is usually the time you go back to the break room and ask people what their plans are for the weekend, you may go for a walk to grab coffee, you may look up non-related work subject on your computer to pass the time. Whatever your Itis may be, I have it bad today. So enjoy your weekend! Get outside and do something fun. It IS nearly summer after all.
