Something’s got to give. When I get busy and overworked, something has to give to make way for something to get done. Usually, it’s the fun stuff that has to be dropped off for a while. Take today, for example. I had to clean the house and finish pulling things together for Ben for our area’s big gaming event this weekend. I didn’t do it because I had to. I knew that Ben had to get his homework done and this stuff had to be done, so I went ahead and did it. I hope that everything goes alright since I won’t be there and I took care of most of the details over the past few months. I have done everything I can to make sure that things go off with as little stress as possible.
I feel badly when my fun stuff has to be laid aside because it’s my physical outlet, but it happens, I know. I do have to be grown-up sometimes and make the necessary decisions. Besides, I’m off for a weekend of “physical outlet”. I just hope that I will be able to absorb everything and put what I learn into practice.
I know this writing sucks but it’s been a very long, hard-worked day and I’m more than a bit weary. But I didn’t want to flake out before I have even gotten a week’s worth of writing in. I will try to keep it up, even as I travel.
