Here’s a toast to a great day of work! My husband took last week off from work because of some knee problems so we’ve been fighting (well, not really fighting, but “sharing”) time on the computer. Unfortunately most of my work is done on the computer during nap time, so when I have to share it gets really difficult to get all my work done!
Yesterday, after the third time the kids came down to tell me to hurry up I gave up. Every time I’m interrupted while I’m working I have to “get back in the zone” before any real work gets accomplished. I just couldn’t take it anymore, gave the computer up to my husband, and went to town to grab some dinner. I came back, knitted, caught up on a couple of my shows, and then grabbed the hubby to watch a movie with me. Apparently the break worked well. We stopped trying to scratch at each other’s eyes over the stupid computer. I was able to talk to him about how important it is that he allows me time to work uninterrupted, and we had a good evening.
Today I woke up refreshed and ready to go. I have no officially caught up with all the work that had gone undone during the week and I am looking forward to chilling out and relaxing for a nice Sabbath tomorrow. I know some people consider cooking to be work, I consider it to be one of the most rewarding and relaxing past times (given that I have the time to do it properly), so I might even run by the store this evening and pick up all the things I need for a nice big dinner tomorrow night. Pork roast, roasted vegetables, skillet corn, garlic bread, and some homemade mac and cheese, YUM!
