My thoughts released; a mind set free
|It's been some time since I made an entry, again. Time is the biggest issue right now, along with motivation; I seem to be running short on both. But, on the bright side, I seem to have an over-abundance of procrastination...
Summer is our busy season at work, more hours and longer days to cover the schedule. This year it started earlier than most. Normally we see the change right before Memorial Day and it continues through to Labor Day. This year we started picking up more hours in April. Similarly, we are continuing our extended hours past Labor day. At the current time it's looking like mid September before we end the double coverage at work.
This has resulted in me putting in some long days, so even on my days off, I'm feeling very burned out and unmotivated. To counter the effects of work, I have been trying to get more fun time in on my days off. We did get in a few camping trips and have spent some time kayaking, which gets me out of the house and away from anything work related. It also keeps me from getting into WDC and makes it difficult to write.
I find the biggest set-back is just plain motivation, I'm tired and burned out and just can't seem to get my imaginative mojo going.
But, another few weeks and things should settle back down a bit at work. Less hours needed to cover the schedule and shorter days at work. We also have a nice vacation coming up; a full week off camping with friends.
Hopefully, after we return from vacation and start our fall schedule, I can fall back into a nice routine of writing and spending time here, in WDC...
