A surprise day off from the kids, and how I've squandered it

By Katharine Swan On Saturday, September 13, 2014 At 12:02 AM

Despite my good intentions yesterday, and a slightly earlier bedtime last night, I still slept a bit later than I'd hoped today.  That, combined with an unexpected minor crisis at the barn, ate most of my day.

Luckily I woke up this morning to a text saying that I didn't have to pick up the kids from school this afternoon, so I could afford to waste a little bit of time -- but I squandered rather more of it than I would have liked.  It was solidly afternoon before I finally got to work on freelance marketing and client work.

It's Friday, though, so I'm not being too hard on myself.  Plus, I did at least get a little done of what I needed to do, so the day wasn't a complete waste.

Next week, though, I plan on cracking down somewhat.  It's time I got into a productive routine, now that I've got my mornings and early afternoons to myself again.
