Well, I finally got my hair chopped yesterday. I spent more on it than I’ve spent on a haircut in years-before I had kids. But I love it. I lost about 4 inches of hair but it’s a fun style and I’m extremely pleased.
But with all this running around (had to shop for groceries and bring my DH his dinner-oh and make dinner for all the kidlets) I got very little writing done.
What would we sacrifice for our writing time? Quality time with the family? The time it takes to make a good meal (and keep handy anything that has a prep/cook time of less than 4 minutes)? Reading? Sleeping? Exercise? I envy those writers who can do it all. But I work 40 hours a week in an office, so that’s 40 hours I can’t get anything done. This is especially painful when I have lots of ideas floating around my head that I want to get down before they decide my time is up and go find some other writer who does have the time.
School is almost over. They’re last day is Wednesday. Then they can sleep in and I don’t have to worry about who’s going on what field trip and needs a bag lunch and/or money. I can’t keep anything straight and I know I’ve missed an appointment or two along the way. I think I need a secretary.
