Guess what I did last weekend / all this week? Got some sleep! (Hooray!) I have still had a few restless nights of tossing and turning but, for the most part, I’m back to getting 7-8 hours of sleep each night and waking up feeling more like a human than a zombie. It’s incredible what a little extra shut-eye can do for a person; I’m smiling more, eating better, and overall just feeling good.
Unfortunately, what still hasn’t changed is how much is on my mind. The one downside of no longer writing this blog anonymously is the fact that I don’t feel like I can share anything and everything that is happening in my life. I’m dreaming up big dreams, having second thoughts, and doing things I would love to share… but I can’t. At least not yet. Hopefully that will change soon.
So, why am I telling you all this? Because I feel like I have been seriously neglecting this blog. I know I’m still writing once/week, tracking my spending, etc. but I hate that I can’t share all of the big ideas that are rolling around in my brain. Or the reasons I can’t sleep. And it’s all stopping me from being able to write the posts I normally do. Heck, I can barely finish a draft about how my Kobo is saving my budget…
Anyway, this week’s been busy but good: I was interviewed by Bryan Borzykowski for a story he’s writing for the Toronto Star, I had a follow-up chat about an interview I did for the Star back in the fall, and I spent a couple hours with two lovely ladies from The Globe and Mail, shooting a video about my blog and some of the ways I save money. And then they followed me as I grocery shopped! Fun stuff.
And now… well, I actually don’t have any plans this weekend, other than to get a ton of writing done. I’ve promised a few posts to someone that I would like to deliver by the end of this month, and I’d love to get past this case of writer’s block I’m dealing with.
Other goals for this weekend:
- Finish reading Bossypants
- Finish the second season of Sons of Anarchy
- Meal plan / grocery shop for next week
What do you have planned for this weekend?
