I’m in a rush tonight. Made the mistake of crawling into bed to warm up. The air conditioning was on and I get pretty stiff and achy when I get too cold. Only meant to be still for a minute. If you’re wondering why I didn’t just turn off the air, you’re probably not married. It was in the nineties and muggy all day, but still, I get cold.
I actually like the idea of having a deadline. Without one, it’s easy to not get anything finished. Now have the last changes done and Bright Morning Star on Amazon for pre-order, getBook.at/BMS. Their deadline was the 28th, but I had it finished by the 26th. Have my June project in the hands of Beta readers, only three, but at least it is being read. (Do not publish without feedback and last corrections, ever. Even with them, someone will spot something wrong, but at least you have given it your honest best try.
Started the second project of summer camp, doubt I will get it finished by the end of the month, but it’s nice to have the goal, a reason to push. Retirement is different than my working years. Then I had things to get done when I got home, or before I reached work, or things I saved for the weekend. Now, I could go to bed early, wake up late, do absolutely nothing each day. Tried that for about a month. Made me crazy being lazy. I don’t push or do as many things in a day. I don’t have other people’s expectations driving me. But thankfully, I still have my own.
Love feeling busy. Rushing toward a goal. Pushing to get one more thing done. See how it works, another thing accomplished, my 28th blog in twenty-eight days. Thank you.
