Balancing Client Projects & Personal Projects & Other Matters

Today I'm at Riehlife, talking about the balance between doing projects that pay the bills and projects I love and find creatively fulfilling. In the interview with Janet Riehl, I also chat about the ebook, of course! Check out the post.

I'm tired and I know why: I'm getting very little sleep. I'm handling my normal workload and I'm spending a lot of time with baby.  Since Sunday, we have watched Charmed Season 2 (I have the box set), Spy Kids 4 (yuck!), Eragon (average) and The Invisible (why do I always cry when I watch this?).  And no, we're not planning to spend her whole visit watching TV. There's also some socialising  planned and her friend's 13th birthday party involved, which I hear has a DJ and will rock my world. Not a hard thing to do with when a group of  teens, food and loud music are involved..

We've also been watching the doves that usually come into my garden for a meal or two. One of them has decided that he's not afraid of humans anymore. I had my kitchen doors open and he flew in, went to my sink and started rooting in there for food (a good argument to do dishes after a meal:-). I encouraged him to go out and he did, for a moment. Then he came back... and came back again...eventually I had to close the doors or kill the bird  out of sheer frustration and serve it for dinner.

Sounds like one persistent dove!

You're a strong person to sit through that much kids' television. :)

@Lori - LOL! It's exhausting! But I raised Baby from when she was a couple of months to almost 12 years old, then I had to give her back to her biological mother (who had since sorted out her life and was ready for parenthood). So now I only get a week's visit here and there and guess I'll spend it however she wants, as long as I get to spend it with her.

Hmmm, I really feel like chilling out and watching movies too. Or just reading a book. And that is what I am going to do!
