Please head over to Michelle Rafter's blog, WordCount, to see my guest post. Thank you, Michelle!
Sometimes the universe provides what you need when you need it. I've felt awful for the last few weeks. This has coincided with a time in my workload where the deadlines were longer and the projects had all been completed. I marketed, but I didn't go nuts with it because of how I felt/feel.
It's taken me two weeks to get this little article written. I don't do things halfway, so slapping it together doesn't happen. It's finished, I think, and the quotes are being reviewed by those who requested such. I have to go over it this morning before my energy fades completely to make sure I've included all I needed to.
I've had a number of inquiries for other projects, one of which I took because it's small and it's the friend of a friend. I will give her my all, and if I'm too ill to make sense of it, I'll tell her that, too. But right now, I have energy in the mornings, so I'm making the most of it before noon. If I can't, I know a few folks who can take care of her.
But this afternoon is all mine. There's a bed with my name on it, and a pillow that has lots of sleep left in it. That's where you'll find me. Better yet, don't try. I'll be back soon enough.
When you're sick, how do you get time off? What's your back-up plan?
