Last night at around 8:30pm I received a frantic phone call from a local photographer. She is doing a wedding today and her assistant is sick (I hope it isn't Swine oops I mean N1H1 Flu). She needed a 2nd shooter for this wedding. So I said,
Tomorrow is the volunteer event that was 9 months in the making. I am doing event photos and working on the photo booth. It is a HUGE event and it is fun but a lot of work to put on. Remind me in September not to sign up to do this again. Note to self: do not let the PTA moms get me drunk.
I am really going to work on saying NO!
I wish I could take a snapshot of my state of mind to serve as a reminder of why I need to say no. I am bitter because all of the stuff I have been doing has been taking me away from what I really want to be doing and detouring my goals. I am crabby because I am spending too much of my precious time including my beauty sleep, working on this stuff. My fuse is short and I tend to blow up when I am distracted. I have only myself to blame and I don't like this person I am becoming. Sorry if that is negative, but I really needed to get it out. If things are not going to help me get to my goals, I am not doing them. Perhaps it is selfish of me but I need to get my groove back.
At least tonight I get to do something that I WANT to do and that is celebrate with my VERY old buddy Sarge. (Ha!)
