Productivity is exhausting

Wednesday night after my Procrastination post I made a list of everything I needed to get done on Thursday.  I made it through the majority of the list.  Adding my backlog (really not as bad as I make it sound) and an unusually busy workday, I spent about 10 hours siting at the computer in my home office.  I wanted to be productive but not necessarily that productive yet I still managed to complete the few home related tasks on the list as well.  Yay Me! 

Today was an equally productive day.  A few morning meetings, a report to create, lunch, and an afternoon meeting with more report work.  Phew.  Not done yet though.  Lunch was with my Mom, one of my sisters, and sister-in-law to celebrate my Mom's 60th birthday.  Seriously, she does not look 60.  Then there were a few errands, a stop at the tux place for my son to pick up and try on his tux, the grocery store, a pick up for the corsage, a 30 mile round trip to take the son to his dad's then home to more work in the home office.  Productivity is exhausting.

But you were productive. I sat around all day and bitched about books and ate almonds. That can't be good. Have a good weekend.

You are right. I got tons done today and am absolutley exhausted. I think I want to spend the rest of the weekend doing nothing or simply playing!

No kidding! I have been avoiding my voicemail and it's making me anxious. I know I need to just deal with it but I'm so good at putting it off!

I agree that your Mom does NOT look 60!

Oh- and I think you should reward yourself with some quality, non-productive time!
