Tired Tuesday follows Monstrous Monday, and we know Cindy is back to work. Um, I am making this post AFTER work. I work when I am AT work. I don’t know why I insist on putting that. It is extremely unlikely that anybody in management reads my blog, and all my friends are more likely to say, “Yeah right, you work?”
Today was a hot, sticky day. The word “soupy” springs to mind. In fact, my husband Steven suggested soup for supper, but I declined. We had sandwiches. And that is my stream of consciousness paragraph for the day.
I really thought I would be able to write more once I got back to work (while on BREAK! We’ve already gone over this, for heaven’s sake!). My job is simple, repetitive and fairly mindless. While doing my job, I think about what I am going to write. Then as soon as it is break time, I write! It’s great! However, as I have mentioned in many blog posts, it does not always work.
I remind myself that I have only been back at work for two days. And my work does involve standing on my feet most of the day and, you know, working. The best thing to do, I tell myself, is to not get discouraged but to try again tomorrow. Additionally, I end the conversation with myself before I start counting up how long I have been trying again tomorrow. Never mind about the past!
What a pep talk. I may even put down the Tablet and pick up my notebook (the spiral kind with paper; we’ve gone over that, too).
