More often than not, I love the age I am. I’m not one of those people who gets freaked out because I’m turning whatever age. I’ve earned my age. I enjoy who I am now.
However, Friday night I spent the night doing nine tarot readings and with a lovely group of women. We read tarot, talked, ate and in general had a good time. At the same time, I didn’t get home until 6:30 in the morning. I felt every day of my age on Saturday.
Exhaustion doesn’t describe how I felt after spending 24 hours awake. Rarely do I lay down and fall instantly asleep but I did on Saturday. I had plans for the day but they went out the door because I spent the morning sleeping.
It seems like it was a weekend for lack of sleep and the week has started out this way as well. It doesn’t help that last week I had to walk down a flight of stairs so every time I went to sleep, I’d wake up with pain in my legs.
I’m feeling a bit sleep deprived. This means I’m less productive. Last night I wanted to continue editing Wayfarer Resolve or work on the crochet project I need to get in the mail. I couldn’t do either. My brain said enough. Instead I spent the evening messaging with a couple of writer friends until I crashed and slept.
I’m starting to feel less sleep deprived so hopefully tonight I can be more productive. I need to get the pattern done and in the mail so that will be my focus. After that I’m back to Wayfarer Resolve. This novel is being grumbly and difficult. I’ll keep working on it and hope I can get it out this month (not holding my breath).
Between paying bills for us and my mom, running errands, and doing work in our house, my time for writing / publishing has dwindled. I’m going to carve out time because I’m feeling very grumpy about the lack of time I have. This is more of the balancing out of all aspects of my life.
