It was very rainy this morning–the perfect kind of day to stay home and bake Christmas cookies. But before I could bake, I had to work. I did about four solid hours of work for one client, which mostly involved working on video tutorials; I only took a break to meet with a new client briefly at 1:00 (I’m very excited to work with this client). By the time I left at 2:00 to drive to the store and pick up my grocery order, I had knocked out a ton of work, including a project we’d been working on for about four weeks that it was so good to finally get done. I don’t normally devote so much time to a single client in one day, but I was very productive!
After I got home and put away the groceries, it was back to work for two more hours. It was a struggle… I had been feeling fairly energetic all day, but when I got home my energy was just zapped. My stomach was bothering me a lot and I was super sleepy. But I got the work done.
Then at 5:00 I was done for the day! I’d been planning to do my Christmas baking today (making cookies for people like my pastor, dance teacher, voice teacher, etc) because it was the only day I had time, and then I found out we had a staff meeting for Diamonds 2020–so I decided to kill two birds with one stone and do them at the same time. I’m so glad to be part of this ministry and it was awesome to chat with Sara, Bethany, and Caitlin to do some brainstorming about promoting the conference.
Meanwhile, I made butterscotch bars (my go-to), but they came out weird because I used plant butter and baked them in two dishes that were different depths. I was supposed to make snickerdoodles too, but around 6:00 I hit a wall and was so exhausted it was all I could do to clean up the kitchen. Then I went to bed immediately after that.
