Better late than never...

So here is my week 1 check-in. The morning pages are pretty easy, but I'm not going to get up a half hour earlier. I usually am awake between 4 and 5 a.m., and I have plenty of early morning time to write them. If however I don't get my alone time...then the morning pages bite the dust.

Most of the tasks didn't appeal to me much. I really bristled at the one about imaginary lives, and when I shared this part with my husband, he pinpointed the problem right away. They are all jobs. At this point in my life I'm aware that although some of the jobs seem exciting, they are still jobs. My imaginary life would be to be retired in a wonderful setting in NM, in a wonderful setting in Brasil, in a wonderful setting in AZ. The operative word is "retired." My imaginary life would be a retiree! I can't think of anything more fun. And I guess I've been doing it this week as we travelled in our trailer.

Hope this suffices for week 1. I'm at Pat's now, and I've been hogging her computer as it is.

and I guess your Artist Date is gabbing into the wee hours with Pat. Lucky gals! Enjoy!

I agree with you about the "jobs". I didn't want to do any work either!

Good point! About the jobs. I did identify two cool things I would like to have done, but I'm with ya, sister, being retired is the best!! If you don't get it done today, there's always tomorrow. Or the next day.

For what it's worth, most of my imaginary lives are NOT jobs ... so it is possible not to go there :-)

"If you don't get it done today, there's always tomorrow. Or the next day." That's my attitude about my job anymore too! But I'll be the first to admit, the 5 "jobs" I picked are things that appeal to me - but I'd much rather be retired - somewhere in NM!
