I suppose I had to hit the wall at some point, didn’t I? Actually, I’m going to be half-full glass girl here, and say that I did get my book proposal all done and turned in. Now the waiting starts.
As for the rest of my goals, they just didn’t happen. I spent the Monday time organizing all my electronic files. I blush to admit that I’m one of those incredibly lazy people when it comes to culling out the dead/old/unhelpful copies of things. I’m revising three chapters of my master’s thesis and two conference presentations; the multiple copy situation was driving me crazy (my kids would say, crazier). So I took my two hours and organized.
Tuesday, it was time for the same on the paper file cabinet at home, so there went that two hours.
This morning, I left the house at 4am to drive my youngest son to the airport to visit my older son. It bites to live in the middle of nowhere; it takes at least 2 hours to drive to any airport where one can afford the ticket. So I got home at 10am, and to work at 10:30. Phew.
Back to that half-full glass. By sharpening my saw, as Stephen Covey calls it, I should be able to sit and revise rather than searching for the latest emendations, additions and the rest. I’m holding on to that happy thought!
