We’re about 3 weeks in to the Spring Semester, and, holy crap, it’s really not that bad.
I’m serious, it’s, like, really not that bad.
Paul’s schedule actually allows for me to spend 2 or 3 hours, 2 times a week to get my work done. Hopefully even another few hours on a weekend day as well.
That’s just INSANE, you guys! I went from constantly having my work floating around in the back of my mind (like a toy-filled bathtub that I forgot to drain) to knowing that, without a doubt, I will get to it on Tuesday. I had no idea how much this was affecting my general state of being until I actually started getting to have official work time for myself. Rather than finding 20 minute pockets of time in which to get some work done, there are now entire stretches where I cross of 6 OUT OF THE 7 ITEMS ON MY TO-DOLIST. I’m just barely short of frolicking through a field of wildflowers when I leave “work,” but it’s too damn cold outside to be doing much actual frolicking.
Also, why did I put “work” in quotation marks? IT’S TOTALLY FOR-REAL WORK!AHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAA!
Anyway, that’s not the only thing that’s going well. Our house has managed to stay at a fairly consistent level of maintained since school started back up. This is amazing. We’ve moved furniture around, gotten a little creative with the decorating, and even collected ALLOF THE TOYS in one place, organized most of them, and created a little reading nook in Charlie’s room.
This is usually the point where I start waiting for that shoe. You know, the other one? The one that drops? Why!? Why do I do that? Of course we are going to hit a few hitches here and there . . . but having things go well doesn’t always mean that immediate suckage is impending. I’m sure we’ll slack a bit, and we’ll probably get some curveballs thrown at us, but I’ve really got to work on this whole now thing. As of right now, we’ve had a good couple of weeks, and it’s pretty great.
There was a lot of sadness in my Facebook feed last week about things that don’t have much to do with me, and it’s a good reminder to stop worrying about stuff that hasn’t happened yet. Right now is going well, and also, right now is going well. That’s all.
Also, it’s nice to not have a brain full of moldy, floating ideas.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go knock on some wood and enjoy my evening.
You guys? Are things going well? Have you accomplished anything awesome? Any sweet business ventures you want to share in the comments?
