If We Were Having Coffee // I’m So Sorry I’m Late

Hello dear readers, and thank you for meeting with me tonight. I meant to meet up with you earlier, I really did, but I was feeling very tired and ended up with a terrible migraine. Then I spent the rest of the day visiting with family and I just couldn’t get away long enough to have a proper chat with you.

I am feeling much better now and I am finally back at home, so I wanted to make sure to take some time for you. I wanted to make sure we chatted before I was off to bed and the weekend had ended.

*************

If we were having coffee I would tell you that this past week was a pretty good one, I barely worked at all! I was off Monday for President’s Day. Then, most the schools in the district I work for were off Tuesday but I did work a few hours doing paperwork and cleaning up the office. Wednesday I worked a regular shift. Thursday I took the day off to be with my girlfriend, who was also off. Friday I worked a regular day, bleck!

It was nice to have a little break but I also felt a little anxious about it. I kept feeling like I was going to fall behind in my work or that I had forgotten something. I also felt less productive. I hate trying to find time for writing during my work day but because I am already up and moving I don’t have trouble finding the motivation. When I am at home it is the opposite, I have all the time but none of the motivation.

If we were having coffee I would tell you this past week wasn’t a very exciting one. Nothing terribly interesting happened and most of my time off was spent catching up on comments (which I have fallen  behind on again, I am so sorry), deleting old emails (which have piled up again), and I read a lot (but not as much as I wanted to).

Honestly, I think I have to give up trying to be so organized and productive. Deep down I want to be one of those super productive bloggers that have all their posts planned out, scheduled, and written well in advance.  I want to be the type that plans events and collaborates with other bloggers. I want to be the kind that is doing big things and makes it look easy. I never will be though. I am always going to be the kind that is flying by the seat of her pants, barely getting by, barely posting anything at all.

I will say that for not being able to get my shit together, I think I am doing a pretty good job.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I drew something last week. I have been trying to draw more and while I didn’t do a little drawing every week the way I had hoped to I did do one which is more than I do most weeks. The drawing is simple, and not even all that good, but I think it is, at least, cute. Check it out, it’s a little fox :)

I drew a very tiny fox today. I think it came out adorable :)

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am so happy to say that I am writing this from a brand new, fully functional laptop. I have been wanting to get a new one for a couple of years now, my old one is probably about 6 years old which is ancient in technological years. The battery was useless, it could only be used if plugged in, it was slow, I would click to open an app and go make a cup of coffee before the app loaded, and if I typed too fast it would freeze up.

This new one is so fast, and it has a touch screen! I can do so much more so much more efficiently. I am thinking I might even be able to really edit some photos and maybe get my old Wacom tablet out and make some art. I feel like the future is now and it is a beautiful time to be alive!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that as much as I looked forward to this and as much as I am enjoying it, I do have to get going. I have to get up early in the morning and I think I feel my migraine is coming back. That’s how they are for me, though. They come and go, off and on, for days and then nothing for months. Then the cycle begins again. So, I had

So, I had better head to bed, where it is dark and quiet, so that, hopefully, it will be gone by morning. I’m really glad we were able to chat, even though it was late. I just couldn’t let a Sunday go by without tell you how I’ve been.

I hope you have been well too. Please drop a comment and let me know how you are. I always love to hear from you :)

  1. Nice that you had a short week and nothing drastic has happen to you. At times,I wished I has some of the new technology and than I think how much work it would take to get me at the same level. I changed my mine.

  2. Yay for new computers! Haha, I went through the same thing a couple months ago. My laptop was only maybe 3 years old and it was getting so bogged down. I had even done a complete wipe and it still ended up being really slow. So when we were out laptop shopping, Moose – ever the frugal one – had the brilliant idea of getting one of the display models. Still a new computer, but wa-a-a-ay cheaper. And it’s a touch screen, too! Also glad to hear your week wasn’t too hectic. That’s always nice :D

  3. I just started a new job today, so I too am looking at that work vs creative balance. I think working out of the house again will make me more productive in general – it certainly gets me out of bed a lot earlier – but now I do have to worry about finding time for things. Here’s to figuring that out!

    1. Congrats on starting a new job, I hope it’s one you are happy about. I think it’s the getting up earlier that is key. When I’m not at work I sleep in a little and lose the hours of the day when I am most motivated. I think I may have to start keeping the same schedule on the weekends too :/
