Projects - Writing and Crochet

So far, I have four spring scarf patterns and one shawl to publish.  I have probably two more scarves I'll make up and then I'll go into publish mode with them.  This will mean a couple of days of getting the files set up, covers made, and then publishing.  After I publish, I will post on Facebook, Twitter, here, Ravelry, and a few other places.  This all takes time.

I'm hoping to have the two scarves done shortly - maybe this week.  I meant to crochet last night but I had such a headache, I could not manage it.  Light was hurting my head.  I gave up and turned off the lights, put my chair back and watched Criminal Minds in the dark.  I couldn't even text without the phone bothering my eyes.

Hopefully tonight I'll be able to work on crocheting.  I've got three things I want to finish before the end of the week if my head will cooperate.

Once that is done, I'll probably look at editing as I have the two novels done for the first draft.  I need to do the searches for all the words I overuse.  Then a spelling and grammar check before I print and do a read through edit.  At the same time, I want to work on writing and finishing two other projects I have going.

The craft room still needs finishing.  I need to make time to finish it soon.  I've got more things to go in there as I've finished some projects and need to put excess yarn away from it.

I spoke with someone who said they retired from their job years ago but within a year went back to work because they were essentially bored.  I really don't understand this.  I'd like more non-work time to be able to try out more of the things I like to do.

I know everyone is different.  I'm fairly certain it would take me at least a year to run out of projects (probably two years).  At which time, my daughter would have more projects she'd like me to do.  I don't have enough time to get all the things done I want to do.

Crafting Escape

It was a good weekend.  Friday I left work to go to the doctor with Vicki.  We were forceful about her needing a different antibiotic.  She ...
