Today, the pollen count was 7.8 and it was very windy outside. I woke up sick and already experiencing allergy symptoms – itching eyes. I am still feeling very anemic.
Put that all together, and it means I have almost no energy with which to be productive. By “productive”, I mean “doing something that makes money.” This is the definition I hold myself to after decades of being poor. Obviously, there are plenty of things that can be defined as “productive” that don’t result in money. But, money pays the bills – so there’s where my head goes.
Fortunately, I finished all of my writing work for this month. No idea how I managed to do that a couple of days early. This probably explains why, a few days ago, I was feeling like all I did was sleep and work.
I needed this day off more than I realized.
The most productive things I managed to do today (that weren’t paid work) include: dusting my desk, taking a shower, and sorting through video game screenshots. Oh, and I helped put the laundry away, too. It’s not much, but it took all of my very limited energy anyway. I am “out of spoons”.
