I love a busy day. I love getting up early and going until I can’t go anymore. Lately I have not been able to do that because I have been too tired to do much of anything, but I did get my writing done. That was, until today.
I didn’t go to bed until 4 this morning. 4 hours later and I was back up, too many ideas and things to research running through my head. I had to get up, despite the little sleep I got. I spent 3 hours researching things for crafts I want to start making and selling. I researched and watched videos. I created notebooks in OneNote and made list and estimates. I was a busy little bee this morning and not once did I get distracted by others in the house or random videos that had nothing to do with what I was researching. I was productive.
Then, I had to talk to my mom and tell her all the things I had planned and show her all my work. My mom is my business partner in everything I do. She will one day be my personal accountant and will be paid well.
Once all that was said and done, I got something to eat (yep, waited 4 hours to eat), got a shower, and out the door I went. I had a birthday party to go to for my best friends baby’s first birthday. She told me I had to be there or she would be mad. Can’t have that, so I went. I spent two hours with screaming kids and scented oils. I left with a major headache.
I got home just in enough time to show my mom some pictures and head back out the door with her for some shopping. Hit up a craft store and spent a little money, then Dollar Tree, Walmart, and Chinese for dinner. Another four hours out of the house and I was finally home.
It has been a long and busy day. I am tired and ready to go to bed. Not to mention I have to be up to get ready for work in about 5 hours. What?? Work 5 hours in the morning and come home to start on Christmas gifts. It is a burden to love creativity and home made gifts. I slept most of yesterday, so I had some energy built up and ready to go. I just didn’t know that all that energy would be spent outside of the house. This puts me another day behind on my writing, but I am determined to make it to 50,000 words by the end of the month.
I just won’t get any closer tonight because if I write in my current state, my characters are going to be riding rainbow highways on top of chocolate unicorns, headed to Glitter beach on Pluto. So today I will consider a break from writing. Today was down time, a time to step away from the fantasy I have created and enjoy the world around me. But tomorrow I work twice as hard!
