This time of year I have trouble deciding whether to double down on my own projects — since it’s quiet — or just relax, since it’s quiet.
It’s the equivalent of feeling virtuous or guilty. I try not to drive myself crazy about it. It’s like that old thing of the angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other.
I also tell myself how, since I’m self employed, I can do whatever I want, so why can’t I take some time off? That is my favorite argument of all.
This year the “time off” argument is winning, since I also have a flu that won’t go away. I’ve kept up with email on my iPad in my bedroom. I’ve watched quite a few mediocre movies. Also, the food is not as good here when we have to get up and make it ourselves (my husband is sick too.)
What I really want to do is say thank you. Thank you for reading, commenting, agreeing and disagreeing, and for teaching me about your life, motivations and work.
As some think we need to write less and video ourselves more, I’m still here, reveling in text. I’m in my seventh year of blogging, and it’s still gives me a thrill. I suppose I’m hopelessly old-fashioned. But I do love to write to you, and to hear back.
So happy holidays to you, and best wishes for a spectacular 2017.
