So I go to work today and what a nice surprise awaits for me: we are going to work every weekend for I don’t know how long…
How about that horror?
There go my spring plans down the toilet.
And this all comes just in time for the most beautiful months: the spring months. And I am thinking of all the beautiful sunshine and all the beautiful nature and the green trees and the flowers all around.
And what will I do?
Well apparently I’ll be sitting in my cubicle, glued to my office monitor. Just great!
I was supposed to loose some weight, become a member of a mountain climbers group and spend one whole day each weekend on some mountain. To feed my body and soul with some values.
It’s really hard enough to endure the 5-working-days week alone, and to top it with this?
I feel like a caged animal. I always remember the Mariah Carey’s Fantasy song and the lyrics:
“What you’re gonna do when you get out of jail?”
In that single day left for me. What a life.
I really don’t mind working too much. I’m always buried in some book or reading something online. But that is by my own FREE will. It’s what I like doing and enjoy doing. It’s what I have decided to do.
So what did I do?
Of course I went home, feeling depressed and I overate. It just makes the whole situation even worse. I ate 4 plates of fried potatoes. The worst food ever. But it did feel good.
I was thinking: “I am doing so much push ups tomorrow morning”. Which is really an excuse and I never do them. It just makes me feel less guilty when I overeat.
Luckily I have more than 10 days left from my annual vacation. Oh I plan on using them to a good purpose. Thank God I saved them and they are mine now. Life savers – that’s what they mean to me now. I just hope they will allow them – but they are legally obliged to honor them. Which of course in our Calimero world doesn’t have to mean much.
So I plan doing this:
- Get up at 7 am, weekends. This sounds too crazy even for me.
- Climb to the top of our small mountain in 2 hours, including the coffee/tea break when I reach the top.
- Go down with the cableway cabins.
- Take a shower and get fast to work.
I’ll be there in 11 am. And stay for 8 hours till 7 pm. Sounds awful to me, but at least I will have something out of the day.
Fingers crossed this is just a phase and that the company’s plans will change! I really hope so!
So if anyone is thinking they can’t make it till Friday, comfort yourself that at least you have the weekends. Some of us don’t!
