This week I submitted the 2013 budget at work. It's been a long 4 months of intense work to finalize it. Lots of changes here and there. Lots of negotiating and lots of work to get every detail right. Millions of dollars being shifted around. Hundreds of people to budget for. I love this milestone every year at work. It signals the intense amount of work and extra hours are done. Perhaps work can return to normal now, for a few months.
Todd and I usually celebrate my annual budget submissions with a night out. I'm looking forward to this weekend.
People often ask me, how do I do it? How do I hold down a full-time job (sometimes more than full-time), have fun, exercise, and find time to create things and to blog? Sometimes it's very difficult. Especially during the months of October to January, when I'm so busy at work. Truth is, if you're passionate about something, you make the time. You will never just "find" time. If something is a priority to me, I make the time. I give up other things like watching TV. Or even adequate sleep sometimes. And no, I can't do everything I want to get done. But if it's something important to me, I make it happen. :)
