I finished the third card for the Scrapping for Less guest design team, and I’ll be so relieved when I finish the fourth one. I put so much pressure on myself, and wonder how women who are actually on these teams can handle it. I guess since they only get these kits once a month, they only have one week of pure stress, but still….I haven’t worked since 2005, so had forgotten the stress I put on myself to make sure I do the best job I can. Looking back, I have no idea how I handled life. I ran seven branches and now I can barely do laundry and contemplate what to make for supper….I can’t imagine how I got the housework done, the laundry, and made meals plus worked up to fifty hours a week. It’s all a blur now, but back then, I just remember how stressed the pager, voicemails and cellphones made me. It’s one of the reasons I haven’t gotten a “big girl” phone. I still use a flip phone and barely remember to carry it, and it’s almost never charged. I realize that I’m old school, but I have no interest in being so connected…I played that game when I worked, and it was too much for me. I’m relieved that I’m old enough that it doesn’t matter if I know how to do an app or how to text. All that matters is Rich knows how to do these things and I can rely on him if I need to…when you’re partners, it’s good to know the other’s strong suits…mine is paying bills and doing laundry, and he handles the tech stuff.
