Nature + Vacuum = No Love

(Huh. That equation is also true with me in the place of nature. My carpets can testify.)

The saying that "nature abhors a vacuum" is apparently true. Remember my grand plan last month to get rid of those two hours wasted online every evening?

I did get rid of them - and immediately, my day job exploded with work. I've been working 10 - 12 hour days, 6 - 7 days a week, ever since I "freed" those "extra" two hours.  That'll teach me.

What have you been up to?


  1. The last 10 days have been much like yours. 10 to 12 hour days. Today was one of the first days yet I've had where I could get a little relaxation in.

  2. Oh gosh, that's too much! I'm trying to write 2K words a day. Some days I even make it. Or exceed it!

    I'm reading The Power of Full Renewal: managing energy, not time, is the key to performance and personal renewal. It's really good. And it talks about how bad nonstop work is for anyone. I hope what you're doing won't last too much longer. Hugs.

  3. CHARLES: Sorry to hear that - you have my sympathies. I'm glad you were able to at least relax a bit.

    EDIE: I'm going to have to check out that book. And congratulations on your word count - that's great!

  4. Yeesh. I do know about the 10-12 hour days. I have more of those than the normal 8 hour days so that when I leave "on time" it feels like I'm cheating.

  5. Ugh. I'm sorry you're going through it, too, Travis. Mine probably won't slow down until late fall.

  6. That kind of makes me think of the saying: A ship is safe in the harbor, but that is not what ships are for.

  7. Sidney - I've never heard that one before, but it's a good one.


Say what you will...
