long hours + no fun = cranky, crabby, peevish, peckish me (though not anymore in case I’m scaring you and you’ll never ever enter Jubilee Furniture!)

The last few weeks I’ve been working a million hours (give or take an hour *smile*).  Things at Jubilee Furniture are so busy that I find myself doing nothing but working and then going home and eating and immediately going to bed.  Though in some ways it’s wonderful (store’s doing really well and my boss loves our high sales) – it’s not healthy for me. 

Don’t get me wrong – I love what I do – but when I don’t have time to take care of: myself (I need alone time and especially love to read), my house (order is very important to me and though I’m not a super neat-freak – I like a fairly clean house), and family and friend connections – I begin to resent work and the sound of a ringing phone makes me snarl.

Recognizing I was running on empty (do you remember that song?), this week I’ve deliberately stopped worrying about completing every last thing on my desk and left work at a normal hour.  I got my hair cut and went home and colored it (oops, cat’s out of the bag if you thought my hair color was natural!).  I’ve had some great conversations with my husband and my son (my daughter and I keep missing each other – but we had a funny text exchange – my, how times have changed!) – and I feel human again!

And ready to have a fabulous weekend at Jubilee Furniture!  Remember we’re open today (Friday) from 1 to 8 and tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4!  We’ll also be open next Friday and Saturday (two days after Thanksgiving) our normal store hours (so add us to your crazy list of places you’re going to shop at).
