Progress – February 26, 2018

I let myself get run down this last week. I felt it coming on about Wednesday and thought that if I made it through the week it would be incredible.

I didn’t make it through the week.

I’d watched my son get wore down and he got sick. I was just a few days behind him. Dang.

Fortunately for me, I did get my weekly word count in before I completely crashed. But it felt like the bare minimum, especially as the week went on.

Nothing like a stuffed head, aches, chills… the worst of it is the random pain in my wrists, feet, and in-between the vertebra. Fortunately I’d been active with all the natural healing things for Adrian: herbs, essential oils, etc., so it was easy for start doing it for myself.

But there was so much other stuff going on, things I didn’t need to get sick while trying to handle.

There are some things I don’t want to walk through. Transferring my domain names and setting up new email are just two of them. Yet, it seems like my number is up on this one. But does it really have to be during tax season? Every time my domains come up for renewal, no matter how far in advance I pay for them, they always go down. It’s time to find new services.  It’s just frustrating.

Especially while trying to get along with stories. It’s a time when the business hat and the artist hat both have to be pulled down over my ears to get things done.

I need to stop. I obviously don’t feel well enough to dredge up coherent sentences right now.  I’d much rather feel better right now.

Let’s get to the numbers, shall we?
