Reminding myself

My mother is coming this weekend for our customary advent shopping. I was half the mind to cancel it because of my current work load and the need to work the weekend to keep a deadline. But finally I decided that I don't want to let the job rule my life to this degree.

I hope that I will be able to forget the job for a few hours. A part of me feels guilty because we lag behind (again) and I intend to enjoy myself. The other part of me feels guilty and angry because I let the job take over my whole life and also warp my perception of it. I have the right to a free weekend! I seem to forget this. And I need to reset Real Life to a more ordinary pace, not the sixty to seventy hours work per week I had the last three quarters of this year.
