Giving You My Mind, One Piece at a Time

A Big Fat Zero

Published a couple of years ago in Quote of the Day , The Daily Grind - 0 Comments

Yesterday was a big fat zero when it comes to enumerated productivity. Only slightly more productive when I consider results. I did manage to watch a bunch of tutorials on a bunch of different stuff, but I wasn’t able to take action on anything, which in my mind, makes it a zero.

I also slept a lot. The “side effect” of very productive days tends to be exhaustion for me. I’m retired for a reason. when I was laid off in 2014, I realized that I would not be able to start over at a new job where I only had two weeks of PTO (I had six weeks leave at my previous employer, and even that was not enough some years to cover my medical issues).

I try not to speak of my medical challenges often because I don’t like to give them any more power over my life than they already claim. However, the fact of the matter is that they still exist, I’m still impaired in more ways that one, and they still suck.

Today is errand day, but I’ve got to wait until sunrise to appraise the road conditions as we were supposed to get ice last night. I think it stayed too warm for that to happen, but I’ll have to wait until it’s light out to determine the reality of it all.

I’m planning to be a domestic god today, there is a lot of stuff that needs to be tied up around here before Matthew comes to do my pest control service tomorrow. As long as I can corral all the recyclables, I should be fine. In order to do that, however, I’m going to have to spend some serious time in the back of the house, away from the computer. We’ll see if I can be successful. I might take my iPad into the dining room and set it up so I can run Hulu in the background while I tidy up,

I’ve also got the eCpirse Mastermind call today, which I am looking forward to. It’s an eclectic, diverse group of creators, and I love seeing what they’re doing with their projects. I made good progress over the last two weeks, so I don’t feel like I’m behind the eight ball, even though I don’t have a sample yet. The contest deadline is still six weeks away, and my offering will be shorter than some, so I’m not stressed out about it yet.

May you love the life you create for yourself. Namaste & ciao for now.
