It’s always fun when life doesn’t exactly cooperate. I’ve been busy enough dealing with work related things at work that I haven’t really had time to write much. Doing work at work, imagine that. It’s not a complaint really, it’s the price I pay for the quiet times when nothing is going on.
I also came home and fell asleep immediately after dinner. Probably a good thing, I know I needed some extra sleep. So here I am writing close to midnight again.
I will likewise be busy tomorrow. We have a birthday party to through and the kids are naturally excited. I mean, what child doesn’t like cake, ice cream, and presents?
In fact, I’ve been hearing about it every day this week.
I need to sit down and make a to-do list. My ongoing chaotic schedule is something I don’t really handle well. A little bit of chaos is good, but I’m a routine oriented person with very little routine left. My post times are a good example, they’re all over the place. It’s still getting done though.
In fact, I noticed in a well liked email I sent at work, that doing this every day has impacted the way I write other things. That email was written much the same way I write a blog post. I think even the tone was similar, though that was purposeful. I was extremely… agitated… at the time, so I deliberately wrote, re-wrote, and edited to try and maintain a fairly moderate tone. One that communicated my perspective and how strongly I felt about it but remained respectful and neutral.
It’s an interesting change, to me. I’ve constructed similar messages on the topic before, but they typically stayed unsent drafts because I never felt like I got the tone right.
I’m rapidly running out of time though, and I need to get back to sleep. Y’all take care.
