The timing may be bad but I am taking time off. I have been sick lately and not taking time off to heal made it worse. That means that I am not working on anything but my book as my health would allow although I still have to go volunteer at the school because it's good for my kid. This week we are reading a Clifford book that is going to speech with us this afternoon. ( I miss volunteering but the years away faded it out.)
My time off has been extended as a result of no Internet at home in an effort to reduce my stress, I will only be working on my book for the next week or two. The end of the month should see Internet returned to the home.
2018 My How Things Have Changed:
I know take time off when I need to in order to prevent stress or reduce it. Not because I am sick from stress and being over worked. Now I truly make my own schedule. It is no longer dictated by how much can I do in a day. It is based on something entirely different.
- The amount of money I need to earn.
- Appointments for me and my child.
- Things we want to do.
- Shopping trips, visits to the local park and what we need to do around the house.
There are things that mean I get to write my own lists and set my own priorities.
