I’ve been working hard. Really hard. The other day I asked one of my clients a question about something we were working on and he said, “Oh don’t worry about it. I’ll take care of that. I hate to ask you to work on a Sunday.” My thought? It’s Sunday??? That’s when I realized I’ve been working 7 days a week and at least 12 hours a day for……well, for so long that I can’t even remember how long! So I saw Brandi’s Christmas Break Bucket List over on Mama Knows it All and decide to make myself a little Christmas holidays bucket list here of things I want to between Christmas and Epiphany to help me focus on the season and on myself a little bit more.
