My crazy Friday

Friday was the perfect end to another crazy week.

I'd already had several commitments — a doctor's appointment for me in the morning, a vet appointment for my horse in the afternoon, and babysitting in the afternoon and evening. To make matters worse, I discovered late Thursday that an article I had just been assigned several days before would be due Friday evening.

Somehow I got through it, working on the article in between commitments. After dropping Michael off at work in the morning, I hung out at Starbucks and worked for an hour before heading to the doctor's office; then I worked a little more at home between my doctor's appointment and Panama's vet visit. After the vet visit, I rushed home and squeezed in another 40 minutes of work before going to babysit; once the kids were in bed, I was able to finally finish the article and email it to my editor from there.

Not the kind of day I want to repeat any time soon.

Yeah, that's an example of one of the tougher days of freelancing.

Best wishes that things even out soon.

Michele,

It does sound exhausting, doesn't it? LOL. I survived it, though, and I'm feeling better today!

Devon,

I think this week will be better. I am planning to visit Panama mainly in the evenings this week, so that I can have an uninterrupted week of working during the day. It's been a while since I've had that!

Last week was just as hectic for me, and unfortunately it was not all work-related. Here's hoping we both have a breathe-easier week!

Kathy,

Well, so far, so good -- as you already know! :o)
