Just coming up for air. I am officially tired of my creamed chicken soup after eating it 3 days in a row, but boy am I glad I did that. Just so much easier to reheat and eat than actually cook something.
One thing about being busy is that I don’t snack much. Always a good thing. It also helps that this busy is not stressful. Or much stress. Not like the stress over the house negotiations. It’s just having pretty much every minute of the day full.
I know I have mentioned before that I am a stress eater, but I guess it really depends on the type of stress (and whether any hormones are involved, to tell the truth). I haven’t had any urge to snack outside of my usual eating times and whatever the reason is for it – I am very glad.
I also really notice how sedentary my job is. Not that I didn’t know it was sedentary because, d’uh, I sit to do it, but I really notice it when I have to keep hopping up and down to go pack orders for John’s business. It’s very hard when you work on production to make yourself stop work because you stop making money as soon as you stop working. I have a personal set amount of lines to type in a day. If I type 200 lines an hour and I try to take 5 minutes each hour to jump up and down or whatever, by the end of the day I will have lost 30+ minutes of production, which is a lot of money, and I will end up working that half hour anyway. That’s why I usually sit for the whole work period and do my exercise around that. Then there are those times when we run out of work and I am not making any money during that time, and I have to flex my hours around to get those lines in.
So, in order to keep things running smooth around here while John is gone, that means working late every night to fulfill my job duties and taking care of John’s stuff. That’s the life of an entrepreneur, I guess. At least it usually brings me a nice present from John when he gets back, though I’ll pick him up late Wednesday night. Yay!
