I have decided I am travelled out! Don't get me wrong. I feel blessed that I have a job and that I am considered a strong resource for all the training we're doing for the upcoming merger. But too much of a good thing is still not good for you. I am road-weary; yet, tomorrow I will get back in the rental car and drive 5 hours to train folks for the next 4 days. And I'll do it again and again and again until the end of October.
Even though I've gotten to the point of despising it, I push my way through because I know that every bit of this effort will lead me step by aching step to a time after the merger when my husband and I can be together again. I'm home on the weekends and a few weekdays here and there, but it's not the same as being home all the time. I keep reminding myself that I work to have a life--not the other way around--even though sometimes I feel that my entire life is revolving around work.
I'm looking forward to being able to carpe diem again!
