So… I’m agonizing over something.
You see, I work every weekend. It’s kind of awful because I feel like I miss out on fun things and Dustin has weekends off so I miss out on time with him. However, weekend mornings is when I make the most money so I try really hard to not be too upset about it. After all the money issues we’ve had I’m thankful for the income.
The thing is, summer is coming up. I want to DO things. I was to go to baseball games and the drive in and spend the day in the pool drinking drink with my husband and brother and friends. I don’t want to spend my entire summer working.
I’ve already requested off a weekend and a day this summer. The first weekend is in June for the pool party we’re throwing for Dustin and Ryan’s birthdays. The other day is a Sunday in August when I’m doing my boudoir shoot. And all I can think is how much money I’m going to be missing out on. Which is kind of awful.
So what do I do? Life is short. Money isn’t everything. I want to have fun this summer. I mean, who knows how many summers I have left before we can have kids? But at the same time the idea of missing out on that money makes me feel so stressed out.
What would you do? How do you decide when enough is enough, when you just need to stop working so hard and have fun?
