Mondays are always weird for me. The catching up with all the stuff I put off on Friday, and getting down to the business of writing. It takes me awhile to get situated. This morning, I’m just getting to my first column and it’s almost time for lunch. By the time I answer e-mails, set up interviews for the stories I’m working on, and take care of the calendar dates, well it’s almost time to take a break. :-)
I am doing things differently this year. I’m trying to cut out of work at a decent time. Helps that I work at home, I know, but I have a habit of sitting here for 16 hours a day, with only a lunch and dinner break. I’m forcing myself to get away from the computer and watch television, play rock band with the kids, or do something fun.
And excuse me while I fly my freak flag proudly, but I’m also making my usually junky workspace more fun. Yesterday I went and bought a Looney Tunes desk calendar to go under my key board. (I wish that was the only thing I bought. I really, really, need to stay away from Office Depot.) Every few days I deal with the piles on the desk and try to whittle them down. It helps me from feeling overwhelmed.
So tell me what you did this weekend, and how you are making your life a tiny bit better? Or tell something you think you should do to improve your quality of life. Oh, and did you watch Terminator last night? I love that show. It’s on tonight too, so don’t miss it.
