Now, dammit, here's what I find productive all the way around:
Got up at 9:15am.
Worked straight from 9:30am 'til 2:30pm.
Went swimming with my nephews from 3 'til 5.
Showered, ate, then worked for 2 more hours.
Did Joan website stuff.
And now here I am!
The thing about Productive Days is that... at the end of them, you feel relieved and so you drink a bunch... It's now 1:15am. Ideally, I'd go to bed by 2, wake up at 10, go get the older nephew's birthday present for later this week, plus some makeup, come home and do a bunch more work... Maybe. But since I'm currently caught up/ahead of work, I get in "lazy mode," i.e., "drink and goof around on the Internet 'til all hours" -- which doesn't at all lead to a Productive Next Day, that's for sure!
Tomorrow, I really DO need to hop on a bus and go buy my nephew's birthday present. (Ideas for which he today kindly wrote out for me on a tiny pink Post-It note.) I really DO need to do the ton of freelance work that's currently available to me. GO TO BED, STEPH! :)
