11/03/2006: ""Home" for the Holidays?"
Procrastinate: To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness.
So, I kept putting off getting my tickets back to Nebraska for the holidays because I hate trying to coordinate everything. Long story short, I waited too long and now the expense compiled with the bizarre set of connections and overnights needed to get back to O’Neill, has made me decide to stay in Juneau this year for the first time ever.
I’m sad, because I’ll miss getting to spend lots of time with my dad and grandparents, not to mention my sisters and their families…but another part of me is relieved. I *hate* traveling at the holidays and the thought of not having to do so has made me feel borderline giddy.
I’ll have a nice chunk of time off from work in which I can go skiing, read, watch movies, and most importantly…PAINT. I have a plan now, to get about 10-15 ideas/thumb nails for new paintings finished prior to the break as well as all the canvases or panels, etc. so that I can bust some serious moves during my vacation.
My goal for November is to finish my various outstanding commissions. I’m not taking any new ones until I finish up the ones still on my plate…I’d like to have them all out of the way before mid December. Having a plan of action makes me feel less stressed out about my recent dereliction of duty.
I've decided to skip NaNoWriMo this year (though I was really looking forward to it) because there's just too much going on.
Oh, and I'd like to wish my papa a HAPPY BIRTHDAY (one day late)! You are the greatest and I love you!!!
