Argh…. I hate it when I cannot say no or no one hears me when I do. I am involved in finishing up some obligations out of state and while I was very clear that I have very limited time, everyone just dumped a lot of stuff into my lap….all at the same time. I really want to scream, but I remember a long time ago, way before moving was even a faint glimmer, I remember being up here and saying to myself: “How can you have a bad day when you live in a place this beautiful?” So today, right now, on this gorgeous evening, I am repeating that to myself and taking really, really deep breaths. This, too, shall pass. I have a very limited amount of time left before I am free of this obligation and I have to keep reminding myself to shut-up and smile…..and look out the window and take a very deep breath.
Did I mention that I am so done with NJ? Oh yeah, I did, several times already. But now I really mean it.
