Are there days that you know there aren’t going to be enough hours in it to accomplish everything that needs to be done? Are there days you look forward to because relaxation will begin soon?
For me both of those days are Fridays. Fridays are great because it’s the end of the work week and the weekend will soon begin. But Fridays are also bad because that’s my deadline day for the paper. Everything has to be finished and sent to the press. There’s always an ad late, someone’s forgot to send in an article or the system just so nuts for no reason.
Trying to get the paper laid out and sent to the press consumes my day. Once I sit down at the computer to begin, I don’t leave (except for short breaks of course). My lunch is usually a brownie and a White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks I pick up on my way to the office. For this reason the blogging I get to do on Fridays, I usually do in small time frames shortly after midnight or early Friday morning and some late Friday evening.
I check my e-mails from time to time throughout the day, but I feel like I’m missing another part of my life because I can’t drop by various blogs and see what’s going on. Six months ago I would have never believed that possible. What can I say, blogging is addictive.
You know now why I’m missing today.
I do want to say thank you to Heather at heather webber for awarding me the “One Lovely Blog Award” this past week. I enjoy stopping by to see what Heather’s up to each day. If you haven’t visited her blog, be sure to stop by and say hello.
I’d like to pass this award on to several blogging friends. It’s hard to selected just a few so everyone who stops by today, you’re welcome to take the award as well. There are no strings attached to this award. If you feel like passing it on to those, do so and if not that’s great too. I just appreciate each and everyone for visiting Thoughts in Progress.
