Lazy Sunday

I woke up at 7:30am and did some work on "Ragtime" this morning, then I went back to bed around 10:30am and slept for several hours.  I had big plans for today but then, after feeling guilty and beating myself up about not doing all the things I need to do, I realized that today is really my only day off for a while.  Unfortunately, I didn't come to this acceptance until about 7:30pm tonight, so I really kind of ruined a perfectly good day off. Disappointing, but at least I was able to salvage the evening.

The next few weeks may present themselves in rocky ways, but I am doing some things that sustain me - work-wise.  Now, I just need to be sure that I carve out the personal time that sustains me.  I haven't really paid that much attention to that until the last couple of years.  I'm still digging out from the work-blizzard I allowed myself to stand under for so many years. Don't get me wrong - work got me through some pretty tough times, but it is so much easier to just find shelter than to get buried and have to dig out eventually.

I have so much I want to do and experience and I just need to keep reminding myself to follow through.  Forgetting is too easy and it doesn't help anything.

So, those are my thoughts on this lazy Sunday.

  1. I had to tell you, I saw your post on Art-o-Mat and promptly went to their website, located one here in my town (yay!) drove right on over and got 2 little pieces of art. It was the most exciting thing I have done in a while. Even my cranky husband thought it was really wonderful!

    Now, if you want to battle your work-a-holic tendencies, you should come hang out with me. I am in Guinnes Book for World's Laziest Woman! Also, we could go back to the Art-o-Matic machine and get more surprises ;)
