Owning It

Most of the time I am good about my writing schedule. I get the posts out about products, I get the book reviews post out (Though I’m totally behind schedule on that and was supposed to have one up today), I get myself to knock out weekending posts on sunday night, etc. I do it because if I let myself off the hook then nothing would ever get done. It’s the same with working out, it’s the same with cooking at home and making my lunch for work instead of buying it. Do it, do it, it’s important. Push through and just do it. *Nike Swoosh Inserted Here*

But then sometimes, every once in a while, I remember that this is my blog! My space goddamnit! And I don’t have to do the post I wrote down in my blog-writing-schedule if I don’t want to! I can skip a day! I can go to bed early and spend an extra hour playing with my kid and it’s ok.

This on the heels of that big post on choices and trying to fit it all in and be a writer and a worker and have family responsibilities, huh?

Oh well. There are things we can control and things we can’t. Sometimes we just have to own the ones we can and run with it.

What are you owning this Friday? What are you running with?

  1. You are totally right…. sometimes, or most of the times, we get overwhelmed on complying with all our own assignments.

    Thank God is Friday…. today Frank and I will go to the golf driving range after work and after that dinning to a local, family owned Italian restaurant, with Danny and Pattii… remember them?

    Have a great weekend yourself!

  2. I let myself off the hook waaay too often, which results in so many things *not* geting done. I aspire to be more like you in that regard! 🙂

  3. I’m trying to balance getting back on the wagon and trying to not overwhelm myself. Haven’t blogged in three weeks, that’s something that just got pushed down the priority list in favor of cooking dinner at home, exercise, and relaxing with a Gilmore Girls rewatch. All in good time.

    Enjoy the weekend, the sun is coming back!

  4. This week I am owning not making amazing, from scratch dinners. We have eaten food every night, but it’s all been of the semi-homemade variety. Combo of summer cold and tantruming toddler has totally killed my motivation for cooking. There’s always next week!

  5. Tomorrow I’m going to take the day to spend with my husband – because I feel like I never see him anymore. He works 55 hour weeks, and has been working on Saturdays for months. The deck that is 3/4 painted can be damned. My friends son’s 1st birthday party will have to go on without me. I am going to go out with my husband, and price flooring, and go grocery shopping, and have a delicious expensive lunch and enjoy his company for the entire day. I don’t even care if half of the day is spent running errands, because not having to be alone and doing them with him makes it better. So everyone/thing else is just going to have to deal with it.
