Taking the day off on Friday proved to be an excellent decision. Not only did it allow me to get a lot of housework done, relax, and even go shopping, but that freed up my weekend hours for writing.
And write I did. I edited the novel, wrote an essay for an anthology, and finished editing my short story. Sent out the short story to a few magazines yesterday, and I'm anxious to see what happens.
I love it when I write all day. It gives me a sense of happiness that I can't find anywhere else. I wish I had more days like that.
Three more days left of school for the kiddos, then I can quit getting up so early to take them to school for three months. Ah, bliss. Since we have the in-home babysitter, it will be wonderful to just get myself ready for work in the morning and let them sleep in. Wow, I miss those carefree days...I used to love summer vacation.
But not having to worry about getting them ready for bed in the evenings will also free up a bit more time for me. Now if I can only figure a way to get rid of the pesky day job for awhile and still make money... ;-)
