Texas Homesteader ~
When I worked in the corporate world I used to dread Mondays. After trying to relax at home over the weekend, cramming in all the “quality” time I could, it was back to work on Monday. With the intense pressure of it all, sometimes I felt like I was living to work, not working to live.
Mondays are still work days for me just as any other day of the week (except Sunday, which we take off for worship and rest.) But now I work nights and weekends as well. I’m on call 24-hours each day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Gone are the plush climate-controlled offices and predictable work schedules. And also gone are paid vacations & holidays.
Now my office is in a pasture or garden in all kinds of weather. I’ve given up the hope of ever having pretty nails or work clothes without mud or manure.
AND I LOVE IT!
It’s amazing what happens when you love your job this much.
