I am almost "Freshed Out"

I've been extremely busy for the past week. I had 3 very demanding projects with very aggressive deadlines. What I can say, it is "Spring" so.. lots of companies want to "spring forward" and start their Q2 with a "Fresh Look", "Fresh Ideas", and "Fresh Clients"... After 1 week of that! I am all freshed out! But I did manage to get the projects done on time! Now am taking a well deserved day off, and you know what, I feel odd! I feel like I should be working! So how's your day/week going?

I am retired so every day is a quiet day for me. As soon as the weather warms up a bit more I am going to go camping and fishing. I hope you do enjoy your day off.

Ah yes they need us to create a new look, offer a newfangled approach, cough up a modern flow-- catering is kind of going in that direction since I started back again also. With my counseling I do, that has a standard set of rules we furnish; however websites for catering or spirit building or power buying--want that edge and look to us creative expressionists to do so. Glad to hear your 'fresh' out of ideas, cause now more new ones can huddle in the creative processes ! have a great relaxing evening Wendy

Oh wow didn't realise catering is also all about new approach, fresh look too, I guess people like positive change, especially if it bring in more $$$. Hope you're enjoying the change. :)

Thanks! I actually work better with a deadline, knowing something needs to get done means I just end up prioritizing that over everything else. The departmental exam sounds like a lot of work.

I guess it's such a nice feeling to be "freshed out"! It's always good to just take a break. Hope you will enjoy your good day! As a freelance programmer, I am now busy with my software development project. I am glad the current one is almost done, and I just need two more days to complete it and send to someone for testing. Besides working, I am also happily spending time with my children. Though I am not so comfortable because of pregnancy, I am happy to feel the baby is moving actively as well. It's always a good day or week for me.

Thanks, I am back to the grind as I get too bored if I don't work. I also work remotely, and I find the danger of working remotely is that you can just work non-stop, which is a problem. Good to hear you're enjoying your children. :)

I only worked two days this week at my part-time job and am glad to have several days off. I am going to play some table tennis very soon for a couple of hours and that will be fun.

I am exhausted to say the least. We are on the third driving day of our trip home from Florida and it does take a toll on this old body of mine, especially sleeping in a strange bed every night!! It sounds like you deserve the day off for sure, I hope you enjoyed it.
