I spent the day in bed today. Not because I was sick. I was sick a few days ago and finally shook whatever it was on yesterday. I spent the day in bed because I didn't know what else to do. After I got the children off to school and cleaned a few things in my room, I got into bed.
The funny thing is a big project that I've been working on has just been rejected. It was rejected for a valid reason and the reason is so good that I don't think I'll have much success anywhere else. The problem is this project ruled my life for the last two months. My schedule was planned around devoting two hours a day to this project. And now, in the opening of one simple envelope, it's gone and I've found myself with lots of free time.
What will I do with all this time? Here are some things that comes to mind:
1. Shred all my old bills and give myself the biggest allergy attack of the century. Not.
2. Organize my shoes by color. Trust me, that will take two hours a day.
3. Read the telephone book.
4. Organize all my families DVD's by genre and year. That will take a minute.
Ok, you get the point. I have this huge gap in my life that I feel like I need to fill but I don't know with what. I want to write but I have NaNoWriMo starting in only five days. I guess I can really do something productive, like update my website, wash laundry and other miscellaneous mom stuff. Or I could just relax. What a novel idea!
