Which daily tasks take up the most of your energy?

That's the NaBloPoMo writing prompt for today. My answer, work. It feel like it consumes my whole day. If I'm not getting ready for work, driving to work, working, driving home, or preparing for the next day, I'm sleeping.

I've said it before, I love my job. Completely. So, I'm not complaining, not really. Just trying to answer the question as honestly as possible. And now I find I am out of words on the subject.....

Now what?

Oh! I can tell you about the post I wrote for the Falling Skies blog! You can find it here. I submitted it over the weekend and then tried to be patient while I waited to see if it made the cut. I am terrible at patience!! But I got up this morning and there it was!

I have mentioned in earlier posts that I am a huge scifi fan (fiction TV fan in general). Falling Skies is my current science fiction favorite. It is a summer series, so there are no new episodes now, which has led those of us who are impatiently waiting to start picking apart previous seasons and making wish lists (demands) and posting them online! :-)

I really enjoy writing about the show, stretching myself a little in new areas, and sharing my interests with other like minded souls.And it's pretty cool to see yourself in print on another blog too!

Okay, I guess that's all for now. I gotta go get ready for work. I hope everyone has a beautiful and blessed day!

Let's go be beautiful, shall we?

  1. Tamara, spot on! We can be so consumed by work so easily. I haven't heard of Falling Skies. I'll have to check it out.

  2. Tamara,

    Great reflection and appreciate your honesty.
    I'm a former school principal and much of my energy was typically given to that job.

    Now as an independent contractor, it feels much more balanced.

    Good luck on your Falling Skies opportunity!

    Cheers!

  3. Hi Tamara,

    I've never watched Falling Skies, and I'll have to check that out since I'm a huge Sci-fi fan. I've had jobs in the past that became all-consuming, and that part of it is no fun. I'm glad you like your job though. That usually takes some of the sting out of it, even if just a little.

  4. Hi! I am with you! Work and commute really takes up most of my energy. Two hrs each way on the train (on a good day....) and then the "work". Sometimes for me, the commute is worse on me than all the work. Enjoyed your article. I have not seen this series and now I want to see it. Glad you got your article chosen!
