I Got More Done Alone

OK so far the whole concept of getting done with this project early in order to get paid is not going well at all. I find myself being constantly interrupted by people that only want to chit chat or have me help them…..The concept of busy is obviously one they do not get and my stress level, along with my temper are close to going over the boiling point.

I am behind in every aspect. While my current deadline is still five days away I actually needed to finish this project about five days ago in order to be paid in time to take care of what I needed it to. Oh well, I’ll learn to turn everything off and block the driveway one day. At the moment I would be running back and forth from taking care of the house to my computer to ensure that I get everything done properly.

I have a ton of laundry to do, floors to clean, bills to pay and well you know the list is never ending but I still try to narrow it down to a list. I have done a million things today and only one of them so far has been work related. I got the dishes done, a load of laundry and even put most of what had already been washed away. I’m in the middle of cleaning the coffee pot but my biggest accomplishment had to be getting the stains out of the tea pitcher. I have finally gotten to the last of three articles that I have to write today in order to finish this project up and get paid.

It is mid September and I just read where someone was asking if they were the only ones working on Christmas articles. I hadn’t even begun to think about Christmas but it is a good idea. I have to write some of them now so my income goes up when the season gets here to recover from it more easily. I have two daughters with birthdays in December. I think I will begin working on those as soon as I finish this last article for my project.

I still more cleaning to do but it’s best done after everyone else is in bed. One more article, a little one on one therapy time with the kiddo, feed her and put her to bed. Then I get a little me time before it’s back to work. I’m on a roll and the best part is that I’ve done all this alone today which means that once I find a place to move and it’s just the two of us life will be a lot less stressful than it is now.

Green Acres

That’s the marathon for today. I agree with Ava Gabor, I want Park Avenue. I just don’t want the cold weather that they get up there. I have to admit that the idea of a penthouse view is kind of nice but I doubt I’d last long if I ever got it. I don’t like having my neighbors so close and I can look in their windows.

I don’t want to live out in the middle of nowhere either, well at least not without owning most of the middle of nowhere so that I have the run of the surrounding area. I’d love to have peace and quiet to write in but you have to have something to write about.

I managed to write a total of three articles today. Birds falling from the sky and two that are waiting for review. I also accepted an offer on one about schedules and Autistic children which is now published. So all and all it was a sort of productive day.

I washed Theresa’s training pants today and they should be dry by morning. I’ll be washing another load first thing in the morning. I did the dishes and you can’t tell now. I also baked some sugar cookies that didn’t turn out very well. I’ll be doing the dishes and baking cookies that turn out right after I take a nice soak in the tub while watching Green Acres.

OK that’s all for now. I won’t be updating “Working and Saving” tonight. That can wait until after we finish with therapy tomorrow so I can get an accurate picture of what I’ll be earning and how much more I need to do in order to keep on track with earnings and expenses.

watching television

that’s what my weekend is going to be filled with. CMT is doing a weekend marathon of the “Dukes of Hazzard,” “Dallas” and “Green Acres” so that’s what I’m going to be doing. I can do that while I do the laundry, box up clothes that are too small and go through my kitchen to get rid of things that we don’t need anymore.

I’ve decided to attempt and spend some time at Text Broker. I think that the shorter articles of 100 to 150 words there could possibly be done within a half hour even with interruptions. I’m going to start on that in the morning, or late tonight depending on whether or not I turn on the pot of coffee I set up for in the morning. It’s just the right temperature that the windows are open so there isn’t any electricity being used by the heating/cooling unit.

I’d love it if my light bill would post so I could make sure of the due date. The mail doesn’t run again until Monday? is that right? I have plans to update my blogs over the weekend. The refill for my ink cartridge should be here in the next two weeks. http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=workinga-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B003D7NSPG&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrI hit the request payment button for $25 at Sidetick today, I can expect it in 15 business days. That’s not too bad it’ll come in toward the end of the month. My phone bill is due the 14th. I’ve got the money left for it. My minutes are continuing to roll over proving that while 400 minutes for $21.80 would be a good deal, I still need one with fewer roll over minutes so I don’t end up losing them in the end.

I’ve completely lost my thought so I’m gonna go away for now. I may write something else for today but I haven’t decided yet. That’s not the one I ordered but it’s close to the one I need next.

Going back to life

Well, it’s Monday and the first day back to school after the Thanksgiving holiday. I’m not sure what to do with myself this morning. I wrote a blog actually two blog postings at Sidetick this morning. I’ve done a load of laundry this morning and hung it up. The jeans that I washed yesterday are sitting in the clothes basket waiting to be hung in the closet.

I did one article that I began last night and I have a few sentences into another article written and I’m stuck. I was supposed to call and reschedule two of Theresa appointments today but I can’t figure out when to reschedule them for. I think I have to cancel one of her speech appointments to make room to take her to one of them and then I can try for a Friday on the other one.

Well, I have an article and two more blog postings waiting to get done and only 21/2 hours to get them done in. I also have to pack up everything I need for therapy this afternoon in order to get some work done while we’re waiting for our ride so I’ll end this now.
