Slip sliding away
Thursday, February 14, 2008
Mother Nature is not my friend at the moment. She's placed significant amounts of ice in my way, making walking anywhere a pain -- and it's totally not helping with the wrecked ankle and pulled tendon. Ouch.
But enough about my bum leg. My reference to slip sliding away is how I feel my time has been going lately. Sure, I'm sitting at the keyboard and getting stuff done, but it seems to be taking me a lot longer than before to hammer out a page, an article or a query letter.
Maybe this is one of those lack-of-daylight-cause-its-winter things. Or maybe I'm slowing down in my (gasp) old age.

Or perhaps things always took this long, but I never realized it before. Shoot, if that's the case, I really need to be careful about how I pile on the projects. Seriously, I'm breaking into a sweat just thinking about what I have left to do this month.
And for those in the province of Ontario, Monday is a holiday. It's Family Day -- our first one ever -- and despite the lame name (I was hoping for Rock On Day or What Would Madonna Do Day), it's a much-needed break for those on the 9-5 train. For me, it doesn't change anything since I'll still be sitting at the computer, staring at the screen until my forehead bleeds again. ;)
So tell me, are you findng yourself in a February slowdown?
