So I’ve been working on my own for a few weeks now and it’s going alright. I’ve kept pretty busy with some work. Plus, I’ve been crafting like a mad woman. I did three craft shows in the last month. So between work and making Muffles, I’ve been busy, busy, busy.
Luckily my mom and MIL are still available to watch the kids two days a week. Having the kids out of the house on those days helps a lot. I love the little buggers, but you can’t expect to get much done when they’re around.
The days I’ve worked at home alone were a little weird. So quiet! One morning, I went to Panera to write. The surrounding commotion was actually nice. It was like sitting in my old cube again at the office. As much as it could be distracting, it was nice to hear people around.
One thing I realize is I need to setup some kind of new routine. As crazy-busy as I was when I was working away from home, having a routine was nice. Now, I feel a little unsettled. I have trouble remembering what’s going on when, and what day it is for that matter.
And, I just can’t relax. My friend, Suzi said the other night she can’t relax in her own home. Me, too! I feel like I have to be doing something all the time. If I’m not writing, I’m crafting. If I’m not crafting, I’m cleaning. If I’m not cleaning, I’m thinking about painting a room. It never ends. At that rate, you’d think I’d be sitting in some immaculate, well-kept home. I’m not. My home is messier than ever.
But, c’est la vie. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
