Laboring on Labor Day

The boys’ noise woke me at 8am, which, thanks to my work schedule, is sleeping in. I fiddled with email a bit, then took a 52 Weeks picture and settled down to write. A thousand words or so later it was lunch, then a little web tinkering before my first session of karate practice.

That’s when the boys attacked. Twenty minutes of kung fu fighting later, we decided we were in the mood for Enter the Dragon. I finished my karate practice during the opening sequence and credits and here I am back at the keyboard. I’ll write off and on during the movie, and then it’s back to concentrating soley on the writing. Then it’s dinner, some time with the family, and a second session of karate practice (no way am I missing out on that blue stripe tomorrow night).

I tell ya, every day should be like this: exercise, fun with the kids, and work I want to do rather than work I have to do.

I really need to make some of these projects take off.
