Observing the Oncoming Storm Week

I'm almost afraid to say this, kinehora, but I'm feeling better about myself than I did at the end of last week. That took working some self-imposed non-paid work-related overtime this weekend (about 11-12 hours over two days), which has caused BB to side-eye me a bit, but ultimately he understood that, if it took that to stop me beating myself up about the work situation, then it was - barely - worth it. As a union rep, I should be reading myself the riot act, but mental and emotional self-care trumps the contract - something I wouldn't tell many of my younger colleagues, who routinely let themselves be coerced into working hours and hours without putting in for the OT. They're getting coerced, though, so I have to stand behind them and give them the strength to resist doing that. What I'm doing is, as I've said, quiet self-care. 

Yeah, sure, whatever, dude. So long as you believe it.  

We're having corned beef and cabbage tonight, two days too late, if one believes strictly in holiday-centric menus. I used to dislike boiled cabbage with a great and adolescent hate. As I've gotten older, I've discovered that I like it every so often. Today is "every so often."  

So tonight I'll spend a little time with BB and go to bed early so that I can get up and take a running leap at the week. Wish me luck - and may your week be a good one!
