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.

Gosh, I was exhausted just by the time I finished reading this!
Yeah, that's an example of one of the tougher days of freelancing.
Best wishes that things even out soon.
It does sound exhausting, doesn't it? LOL. I survived it, though, and I'm feeling better today!
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!
Well, so far, so good -- as you already know! :o)
