#MicroblogMonday: Making Use of Solo Time.

**********

This weekend Jeff kicked off what is going to amount to about three straight weeks of travel for work – with a couple solo weekend trips planned in between.

His travel both complicates and simplifies life. The complications are fairly obvious – I’m responsible for all the home chores and errand running and schedule-keeping, and fitting in my own few needs – really just workouts and work – is harder. Plus, I miss him. My days end up being a lot of actual chores, and I don’t spend a lot of time unwinding.

But it’s also more streamlined. I don’t really need to make dinner, for example – cheese and crackers for me and pasta for Owen works just fine. The early mornings are freer, because I need to be home until we got to camp – so I can catch up on sleep or hang out with the kittens or fold laundry or unload the dishes.

Or write.

I haven’t been writing. I had this great idea for a project, then got caught up in training and work and general Life Tetris… and I keep putting off writing until I have some more time.

I don’t know if I will ever have some more time.

And my personal writing process is just BETTER when I am writing daily; it’s cleaner and flows more easily.

And since my days will be filled with a lot of chores, I need to make sure I take time for myself.

So as of today, Monday, July 10, I hereby commit to a daily practice of writing;  comprised of daily blog posts during the week and notebook/project writing on weekends.

I hope you’ll join me.

    Getting in to the rhythm of things usually makes them so much easier to find time for once you get going. Good luck with the writing!!

  2. “Life Tetris” – I absolutely love that! (the expression, not actual Life Tetris. Although I do love Tetris, a bit).

  3. I need to do this! It’s so funny that our self-care things, seem to be the ones that take the back burner when life gets busy. I play violin, and I write, and both seem to be the things I am least likely to fit in when I’m really busy.

    I am going to do my best to join you!
