I can’t get motivated!

At 2:19 a.m., I turned in my most recent work assignment. While working on it this past weekend, I thought about all the errands I could run, all the little chores I could do–if only I didn’t have an editing assignment looming overhead.

Well, now I’m free as a bird and have only done a couple of meaningful things today:
1) went for a long walk
2) took a shower

Oh, yeah–I almost forgot! I made lunch and dinner. Impressive.

So am I having a lazy day I’m entitled to, or am I a no-excuse sloth who could be doing Real Things but is instead writing a blog post using her iPod because the computer is too far (read: 5 feet) away?

    A year later, and the same thing is happening to me. A February phenomenon? Perhaps! I mentioned it to a couple friends in the health field and they said, "It's winter." Simple as that. Things should look up now that the days are getting longer.
