I dont have A job

Yes that is correct, I dont have A job, I have a career, two in fact...
Career one is one that these days I spend upwards of 50 hours a week on, I am a budget analyst and this time of year is rife with work for me, in addition to that my agency is very involved in the oil spill and there are components of what I do that are relevant to that... and call me weird but I strongly believe in earning every dime I get...I work for a good place, the respect me, compensate me well, seems the least I can do...

Career two is as a writer, author, publisher, for almost four years I diddled around with it, wrote a lot of books, made more money than I put out, but kind of allowed it to take care of itself...gave away books to folk, who now dont buy books because they feel I should always give them #sighing# but that is cool because I stopped and started treating my work as a viable career and doing those things that make book sell, get people to talk about it and surround myself with those who sometimes think of my best interests even when I don't...

As such I have had to prioritize in this order...
God,
My man and marriage,
My family and my personal well-being,
The aforementioned careers...
As such I dont have much free time,
And when I do, I want to spend it in the corner of my sofa, reading a good book,
With my man next to me,
Or with my Princessa, giggling and dancing,
Or chatting every now and again with my children,
My sister,
Others as I can...
Also I want my time to be as drama free as possible,
As the oil spill will attest,
There are some things I cannot plan for but,
Things like gossips,
Mean people,
Hatefulness and ugliness,
Are as avoidable as it can be,
And I will spend precious little of my time with that,
Not going to do,
God does not bless that mess,
And God has been too good to me and brought me to far,
To lose what I have gained in such a foolish way...
Got too much to do and someday not enough time...

BE PEACE~
