I didn’t dread coming back to work. For the most part, I enjoy my job. Yesterday was WORK though. I had a ton of emails and it seemed like the ones interspersed with the junk mail I got took a lot of time to work through and address. I eventually got caught up but still a tiring day.
When I left work I was still in a fairly good mood but by the time I was driving my energy had fallen away. By the time I got home, I was wiped out. Sitting at my desk all day, my pain level was up.
I am back at work. It means I’m back to picking and choosing what gets done in the evening. I’ve been watching Midsomer Murders (no that isn’t misspelled). Tonight I’m going to attempt to crochet while I watch. My arm was bugging me again. I worked on a scarf for my daughter out of the Paton Metallic yarn. This yarn is very slippery so the tension when you crochet has to be fairly taut, I think this is what causes my arm to hurt when I use this yarn. I have a small project I want to finish with this yarn and then it is going to be put away.
This week I’m going to settle back into routine and work. My sleep has been sporadic at best so I’m taking some down time. However, this weekend I’m hoping to publish several short stories and update two of my novels. Once these writing tasks are done, I’ll be looking at the third Defenders novel again. I’ve been reading what I have and hope to start writing on it again next week. I may have to give up and decide it will be a four books but I am still hopeful I can finish it in three.
Wayfarer 10 is starting to nudge at me. At the same time Wayfarer 8 is in need of editing. All of these tasks mean I’ll be busy for a while on writing. At some point, I need to work on crocheting. The next big project is the skirt for my friend. I’m going to pull it out and redo the waistband. I have two separate ideas and I have to see what my friend would prefer.
After the skirt, I have an afghan for my niece, which she just told me the pattern she likes so I’m going to make it my next project. Plus I have all my holiday gifts to get started. It’s already July. I better get busy.
