My first few weeks of freelancing again

It's been a few whirlwind weeks.  A couple days into my fourth week of freelancing full-time again, I'm finally taking a breather to update my blog and do a few other tasks.

I guess I needn't have worried about finding enough work, because I've been busy.  In fact, I should have been worried about balancing all the other things I wanted to do -- like blogging and writing fiction and reading and riding my horses.  I've been having a hard time carving out time for everything.

I'm pretty pleased with how things are going, though.  I feel like given a few months, this will be sustainable for me.  I'm finding clients fairly easily, and good clients too, perhaps because the economy is better than it was four years ago when I took the nanny job.

But I've been neglecting a lot of things: my blogs, my fiction, and of course, my horses and some projects around the house.  So now that I feel like I've got a handle on my client workload, the next few weeks will be about developing a schedule that helps me to pay attention to my other goals, too.
