Anonymous asked: What does it look like for you to not be doing a good job, at being a grown-up?
Well. It means that I did what had to be done, today, but not much else, and that I didn’t have the right attitude much of the time.
I slept in too late, while Grant worked from home and prepared to go the airport. I got up at the last possible minute to jump in the shower and drive him. That took like two hours. When I got back, I helped Ananda and Aaron with their Virtual schoolwork here and there, and Elise with finding a snack, and I enforced some chores. Oh, I talked to a doctor on the phone, sent an email to someone at the college and ran our electric bill over to the drop box, too - but for the most part I passed many hours napping and wasting time on the internet, despite having TONS AND TONS of backed up marketing and homework and cleaning to do…just like I have been for too many days in a row….then made dinner far too late for a schoolnight, after Elise had already passed out in the tv room in front of a movie. We didn’t eat as a group. I was not patient enough with Isaac’s screaming and crying about hurting his foot. Nobody got read to before bed, tonight.
I had a good scheduled call with my publisher at midnight that I took a lot of notes from, and I skyped with Grant and watched dumb Harry Potter videos with Annie who was up too late because I knew it would make her happy. And now I’m sitting here answering tumblr questions at 2:23 AM, even though I have to start a SERIOUSLY HELLACIOUS DAY tomorrow at 7…and I need to do laundry before it begins…
