Something wonderful happened today. Today's job got moved to next week, and gave me a little breathing room.
Since two weeks ago, I started an avalanche of work, which is indeed a blessing (for my bank balance and confidence) but also somewhat of a curse (if you like clean floors and home cooking).
The last few days I spent visiting my extended family - and doing a little work for them. "There" is out of mobile range, and so I didn't get today's client's call until late on the trip back.
Today I called, and we are doing today's job next Wednesday - and it is with profound relief I regard the 3 loads of laundry, the unvacuumed and unwashed floors, the bathroom and the toilet.
I also have the leisure to look at getting my work web page together, my budget and business plans, my mailouts and touching base with some mentors.
Perhaps I may even look at my wardrobe and find the fixes in my sewing basket. The potential is all there!
Two weeks ago, I would have looked at my to do list and felt stress. Today, I look at it and give thanks that I have the freedom to even contemplate!
In other news -
I also have the freedom to scratch at leisure!
