Gizmo is a very sweet natured girl, she is going to bring positive traits to our growing herd.
This week started like so many others lately, I accepted yet another writing project. I'm beginning to feel a little overwhelmed. I never planned to be sitting at my desk eight hours a day writing, blogging, and answer oh so many emails. Yet somehow it has happened, spare time seems to be a thing of the past. I'm managing to keep my one promise to my husband when this writing adventure began, the weekends and evenings are off limits. It's so important to be able to set it all aside for quality family time.
I find myself flooded with ideas and concepts during my down time and even while sleeping. A notebook seems to be attached to me at all times. In the notebook, I write my thoughts down so that I don't forget. The love for writing has totally taken me by surprise in life. It was never my intention to become a writer. To be bluntly honest, other than being a mom and wife I had no idea what I wanted to do for a living.
There are so many benefits to working from home, my favorite being the ability to stay in PJ's all day. Unless I'm on a video conference, its pretty likely that I will be caught in my jammies all hours of the day at least in winter. On occasion I will get spunky and actually get dressed. I take breaks for my brain throughout the day using the time to clean house, do animal chores, and accomplish the darn laundry. I so want a laundry fairy! I'm learning to sit back and enjoy the ride. Anyone who knows me, will tell you that's a huge step for me. I am extremely OCD, my life has always been very structured, schedules are in place for each day of week. I still have schedules but now sometimes things get pushed back a day or two. I'm learning to be ok with that.
