A few folks have asked how my life has changed now that I’m working for myself and I thought ADMIL post would be a great way to show what my days are like now. Things have certainly changed from the last time I did a weekday ADMIL post. Admittedly, this particular day was a little unusual because it was my weekly errands day, but it still gives you an idea of what life without a job is like for me. So here is my Thursday, February 28, 2013.
Facebook, Twitter, email, Instagram…in bed.
Up! Bathroom, take out mouthguard (classy), brush teeth.

So. Much. Pretty.

Two periods go by, and I’m still lining envelopes.
Finally done with the envelopes. Woohoo!
Decide it’s time to relax. Grab my computer, recline on the couch. Write some more.
Finish that post. Start working on this one.
Lots of photo editing in this one.
Computer is about dead. No interest in getting my cord. Must mean it’s time to really relax.
