Saturday!

I don’t know what to write about today.

I’m happy it’s Saturday and thus laundry day. I don’t think I’ll ever be comfortable again after 11 years of doing laundry all on one day. Pack it all up, wash it all, fold it all, dry it all, bring it all home, and put it away at once instead of in small batches throughout the day. I hear coworkers talking about leaving the laundry in the dryer, forgetting about it for a day or so, and I can’t imagine that anymore. But the only reason I can’t imagine it is because if I leave something in the dryer, I have to come back for it the next day. If I had a washer and dryer in my house, I’d be the same, I’m sure. Oh, I’ll just do a quick load, but then it’s too much trouble to go downstairs and take it out, etc.

Anyway, I like it the way it is, and I’m glad it’s Saturday, and I’m glad it’s laundry day.

Laundry day also means time alone. Usually one of my kids come with me to help and work on their laundry skills, but since the pandemic and the stay-at-home order, it seems safer to not bring them. Time alone is kind of precious lately, and so I really enjoy that.

I don’t have many other plans for today. I’d definitely like to spend some time outside, because the weather is lovely around here today. And I’d like to read some, to really get a chunk of my book read.

And, oddly, I feel like today would be a good day to write, actually. And it’s only “oddly” because I haven’t been writing since January, and so I feel like I’ve really tabled it as a hobby. But maybe that can change. I just need to make time for it.

Well, that’s about it for today I suppose. I’m going to force myself to pause the show and finish the chapter I’m in the middle of.

Promise.

I hope you’re having a great day! And if you’re not having a great day, I hope you’re having a good day. And if you’re not having a good day, I hope tomorrow is better. Loves!

I’m pleased with my streak

I’m pleased with the length of the streak that I’ve been able to maintain, and so I may, at some point soon, stop focusing on keeping it going. That’s not to say that I will let the streak go, just that it’s a possibility. It was neat to keep it up for a month, and I don’t really have any need to keep it longer than that. So we’ll see. That’s a thing.

I have some alone time today, and I really, really needed it. I’m in a house with my family, whom I love, four cats and a bird, who are all very adorable, but I am an introvert and I am getting much, much, much less alone time than usual. Normally I have time after the kids have gone to bed, but they’re going to bed later and later, and my youngest has started wanting to sleep in the same room as I. It’s not that I want to do anything that shouldn’t be done in the same room as my kid, it’s just that I don’t want to worry about bothering the kid when they should be asleep.

I know, there’s some parenting skills in that paragraph that I need to address. I will, at some point, but it’s difficult. Parenting is hard, probably for everyone, but right now, it feels especially hard for me. I’ll get better at it as things go along.

So anyway. I’m getting my alone time, and it’s super helpful.

Let’s see. What else?

I would like to film today but I don’t have any ideas so that may not happen. I filmed yesterday afternoon, but I’m not sure I’ll use that. I need to re-watch it to make sure I didn’t say anything problematic. I talked about my Day Job a bit and how because of that I’ve been paying a lot more attention to local politics, and I went into some stuff that I know is controversial. I don’t want my channel to be like that, if I can help it, so I may skip that one. We’ll see.

I do plan on doing quite a bit of brainstorming and research for YouTube, though. I’ve already done a lot, and I’ve picked up quite a bit of good stuff. I just want to get everything in one place instead of scattered throughout a journal, which worked fine when I did that, but I’m almost done with that journal and so I’d like to start another.

The rest of the day is up in the air. There’s some paperwork that I need to sign and return, and that’s going to be a big part of this evening and tomorrow. Everything will work out. Just going to do my best and keep moving forward, because that’s all a person can do right now.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re having a great day. 🙂

And if you’re not having a great day, I hope you’re having an okay day.

And if you’re not having an okay day, then I hope tomorrow is better for you.

Loves!
