I’m getting to today’s post rather late. After yesterday’s karate test, I’m a little beat so I didn’t wake up until 9:30 this morning. That’s kind of late for me. However, I’ve still managed to make it a productive day. I’ve started some laundry, and have checked email. I’ve also recorded the podcast for this coming week, though I still need to edit the audio and produce the final episode. But before I do that, I’ve got some book covers to work on, which is how I plan to happily spend the rest of my afternoon. Yes, I said happily. I enjoy my work, and quite frankly I’m content to spend all day Sunday up at my desk, focused on the project du jour.
Do you love your job? There was a time when I hated mine. Back in the day, I made quite a bit of money as a graphic artist, but I worked for someone else, and while the pay was good, the hours and the work environment sucked. I don’t ever want to be in that position again. I’d rather earn my usual pittance these days and have the freedom to pick and choose from various jobs. The good news is, I seem to be getting more work these days, so that my pittance is growing. I’m hopeful that in another couple of years, I’ll be able to afford a cup of joe at Starbuck’s 😉
Just kidding. I do actually make more money than that. But really, it’s all about the work I get to do, which is far more creative than what I used to do, and the fact that I get to set my own schedule and don’t have to work with anyone breathing down the back of my neck. I’m happy with my current work situation, and I like the way I can be both mom and artist/writer at the same time. How many people really get to say that?
Anyway, it’s time for me to get back to work. Maybe I’ll post some rough drafts of my current job later today. We’ll see.
