Today's late afternoon.
I've been moping around a bit, loathe to begin the work grind again. Honestly, I think I've been a little depressed. It's been hard to make myself do anything. But, I finally realized that actually, a couple of people have called in the last few days, with really interesting proposals. It's just that I was so busy focusing on the fact that I don't know exactly which direction to go right now, that I completely overlooked the fact that all my hard work has paid off. People seek me out because they want to work with me.
Once I had my sudden attitude adjustment, I came home from the beach, cleaned up all the Christmas stuff, put it away for next year, and spent a few hours cleaning the house. I even tackled the kids' room. Which really wasn't too bad. I changed the sheets on their beds and neatened up. I can enjoy the cleanliness until Sunday night. When it will almost immediately look as though I've done nothing. Cleaning really is the never-ending story. Didn't I just do this two weeks ago?
Right now I'm sitting in my new pajamas (a Christmas present) luxuriating in my clean sheets and ready to sit down and work tomorrow. No LS tonight. I was just not up for hopping in my car this evening, so I went swimming instead. I'll go Saturday, where I think I'm the speaker, but I'm not sure. I haven't heard yet. I'll turn up just in case. And tomorrow, I have a little work to get out the door, then off to the horses, then dinner with M. I'll end this week of good intentions by actually accomplishing something.
