Heading Back to Routine

Mid-morning yesterday, as I was waiting for a bus, I got a call from one of the temp agencies that I'm employed by.  By the time the phone call ended, I'd accepted a position, at an excellent pay rate, that will last for the next four months and begin on Monday morning.

There are huge benefits to this, chief among them the personal, emotional and financial stability that not having to wait and wonder about employment will bring.

That said, I've suddenly lost that feeling of having "all the time in the world" to accomplish things.  There are a number of things that need to be accomplished over the course of the next week that will require significant amounts of time.  Time that I don't have quite as much of now.

So, it's most likely going to be quiet here for a couple of days (other than the Daily 5 of course).  I need to tackle a number of things that I'd thought could be more leisurely, spread out projects and now need to be condensed a bit.  I need to take care of the details that make going back to work possible - things like laundry, and making sure that I have groceries to supply myself with lunches and snacks for the work days.  And I have a ton of reading to tackle - assigned reading that will require some time and effort, and that I now have less time to accomplish!

I'm off for a day of reading and errands.  If I don't show up sooner, I'll definitely be back here on Tuesday with the next installment of You Ask, I Answer!
