March 31, 2004 12:50 PM- half full / half empty
This is the kind of day when I want to focus on everything that is wrong.
It's rainy and cold. Really cold. Raw, heavy damp, huddle-around-the-hearth-wrapped in animal skins-and-let-the-troubadours-entertain-us cold. I have too, too many things I need and want to do and lack the discipline/time management to get them done.
At work, I am directing the launch of a 500K product (a 30 million dollar program) and am utterly and completely maxed out.
At home, I have to get this house readied and gussied to be sold this summer--tons of hours of work. I have a book manuscript that must be completed by May 15 (per publishing contract--don't think they're gonna give me a whole lotta leeway on that). Have a play to finish if I want it staged in August-- haven't worked on it since February. Have my most important writing project on the back burner (I only flirt with it at night before I fall asleep and in the morning before I get out of bed like Michelle Pfeiffer and Rutger Hauer in LadyHawke). Have painting to finish by mid May (so it will be dry) by Memorial Day weekend for my niece.
So, let me instead just focus on what is good and real and most important.
I have no broken bones or virulent viruses.
I know love. I am loved. I give love.
I am safe, warm, dry and not living in Bagdad.
I am taking Friday and Monday off.
Today was pay day.
Now shut the fuck up and stop whining.
got 2 cents?
