First of all, thank you to everyone who left such nice comments and emails of encouragement. You are the best. It’s like this saying, when it rains, it pours, and I had one of those days today. For some reason, every client that I freelance with have emailed with work this week, which is sort of rare, and it’s making me feel like there’s this cosmic force at work. The events of this week have just been so strange. While I usually have this policy to never turn down work, this week I have, which is unsettling as a freelancer. I also think I may be losing it since I left for an early meeting this morning without my wallet AND my keys, and of course had just emptied the metrocard getting there so I had no way to buy another ride home. In rummaging through my bag in hopes that I would find some change or a stray dollar, I found our new business bank card at the bottom of the bag which I must have thrown in there before the weekend because I distinctly remember it sitting on the shelf in my room for weeks. A few guesses at my pin number and I was saved.
So to get through the next few weeks I broke my day down into units (remember when Hugh Grant did this in About A Boy?) So my days will go as follows: freelance project 1: 8 units, freelance project 2: 4 units, help packaging cookies: 4 units, sleep: 6 units, eat and spend time with kids: 2 units. Ok, I can do this. See you on the other side.
