about time, huh?
...today was one of those days where I just needed to do something for myself. As a one woman show, it's amazing how little of your time is actually spent creating. Many a day is spent with e-mails, paperwork, packaging, posting, and all the other bits and pieces that inevitably leads to a week where I haven't created a darn thing. In order to keep some sanity around me, I have come to realize how important it is to just clear the desk and be completely selfish.
...after one last look at my e-mails, (really not a good idea that I have the computer so accessible...I am one of those easily distracted souls that will "just check my e-mails quickly" every few minutes while I am working...have to stop that!) I turned off the computer and began to work.
...I didn't spend the day rushing to meet certain deadlines and bolting to the post office before the school bus arrived, but rather put on my comfy jammie pants, had a cookie, and started to play. These solo play dates are so needed, and I often have to remind myself that they are also a necessity to keep my other work fresh and creative.
...alright. Obviously I have the computer back on, but I swear I won't check it every couple of seconds! Besides, I have to run off to the kitchen for another cookie.......
