Looking for some sanity...

Only four days into the new year and I am already looking for some sanity to return to my piece of the world!!!  As stated in a previous post my world has been turned upside down beginning on January 1 with LSU's loss and proceeding downhill from there!  Today the world continued to be topsy turvy!!!!

Work
I expected work to be busy starting this week.  We are down an employee and I have a convention in 3 weeks.  I was actually looking forward to being busy!  (GASP! Did I say that?  Looking forward to being busy at work?) But work has gone from being busy to INSANELY busy.  I am working on a total of 3 associations, my convention which is in 3 weeks and another employee's convention which is in March.  How much can one person do?  I put in 9 hours today.  I'm thinking there are going to be  nights where the old laptop will have to come home with me. I know it will all get done but right now it is just overwhelming. All I can do now is keep reminding myself of all the overtime and extra money.  I'm thinking a trip or a new Coach purse (yes another one!) will be well-deserved at the end ! :)

Weather
What is up with this weather?  I live in South Louisiana!  It should maybe be in the 50s.  Not in the 20s.  There shouldn't be any advisories for wintery mix.  What is that anyway?  Wintery mix? Poor Duke was literally shaking to the bone with cold today when I took him for his walk.  I don't think he actually pooped, he shook the poop out!!!!  I bet he'll wear his sweater tomorrow when I take him out!!!

Stitching
Well, with the cold weather comes the perfect excuse to cuddle up on the couch and stitch!  So off I go to put some more work into Dragon Knot!

Stay warm everyone!

Hey remember to take time to pamper yourself and to take time to stitch.

Extra money is always good, especially after Christmas ;-) !!! Hope it doesn't last to long ...

Oh your work sounds a little too bit hectic at the moment - and i hope poor little Duke is coping a bit better with the weather today lol!

Also your Dragon Knot is looking fantastic..

Sorry, I commented to the wrong post earlier so I fixed it.

Remember that even though the overtime is great because of the extra pay, don't tire yourself out. Pace yourself and take time for yourself each day.

So things are starting off with a bang! Take care of yourself and give yourself a treat when you can!

I hope your busy time doesn't last too long. Nine hours a day is plenty! Your project below is just beautiful.
