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.
