Just as every day, I find myself struggling to keep working around this time in the afternoon. Why? It’s so frustrating, and I literally feel angry with myself. Why can’t I push myself to finish out the day?
I’m not making a massive amount of headway in my to-do list. I’ve done a bit of cleaning, and I’ve answered some emails. I even got 20 more questions done on this one assessment I’ve been working on. Just 20 more to go, and I’ll be done. I even think I can finish it within an hour.
But, Little Man is being pretty difficulty. He’s tired. I know it. He knows it. He just refuses to nap. That’s when I get my best work done. If he could just fall asleep, I could totally knock out that assessment and get to work on other things.
Plus, I got an email from my supervisor. It was sent to all the people underneath her (about 60 of us), and it basically said that the work being turned in was shotty. I don’t know if that’s directed at me, or not. I feel like I turn in some awesome work, but ya never know. I still get emails from her to fix certain things. Maybe I am turning in some junky stuff. I’ve made a resolution to be more diligent in my writing. That way, I can feel confident when I turn things in.
So… my plan? I’m totally going to put this kid to sleep. If that doesn’t happen, nothing else will. A fussy baby is not exactly conducive to work. Then, I’m going to finish this assessment. After that, emails and laundry are to be done. I mean, I can do this, right? I can finish this list?
Me reward? If I finish it all, I’m definitely going to finish this book I’ve been reading. I’m about two-thirds of the way in, and it’s getting good. Let’s hope I get all this stuff done quickly!
