You know I realized today that I have no idea how normal people operate in the world. Not that I was ever normal, but I did used to have a desk job, and commute, and then I had a job at an office at the beach and the other days I worked from home. And now I work from home or wherever the eff I choose whenever I want, and it’s amazing. Not that the last job or jobs even were bad, they all helped me get to where I am today. Even the crazy ones, the crappy ones, and the ones that sounded too good to be true (they were).
Now I have days like this. I get up at 8AM and work from bed. Yes, bed. From my iPad or iPhone while buried under cats and maybe a dog or two. Then I get up and have coffee, throw on hiking gear and take the dogs to High Point where we do about 3.6mi in an hour to an hour and a half. I get to enjoy the fresh air and exercise in a way that doesn’t feel like exercising, and the dogs get to jump in the swamp. Every. Single. Hike. They are like swampthings, it’s disgusting, but they love it and it makes me laugh.
|My Morning View
Usually around noon I’m done and heading to town to run errands, go to the chiropractor, stop at Tractor Supply, and maybe grab sushi from my favorite place for lunch. I love sushi. A lot.
Then home by early afternoon to start work. I may work for a few hours, usually on clients I love (I told you my job is amazing), and then around 5ish if I’m lucky friends will get here and we’ll ride a horse or two. Maybe jump around some or hack for a bit and then we’ll BBQ and have a few beers. Or wine. I do love wine.
After that, it’s time for a quick shower, feed the critters, and get to work. Yup, you read that right. If I’ve only done a few hours of work during the day, and I still have deadlines to meet or projects to complete, I will work at night while watching ID TV (I am addicted). Sometimes I work til 2 or 3 in the morning, but that’s okay because 1) I love what I do and 2) I work for myself so sleeping til 8 or 9AM is totally okay with my boss. I’m definitely a pretty cool boss if I say so myself.
And then there’s this. I get to go to awesome places like Rolex 3 Day Event in Kentucky. If you’re not a horse person, check out #RK3DE for more info on what’s trending all over social media. It’s an equestrian event that is more challenging than the Olympics – and one of the three hardest in the world. AND I GET TO BE THERE! For the first time ever. Because I have clients going (I am actually driving down with one), and it’s a business expense. WOOOHOOO!
So yeah, you can say I am excited. Just a little. Of course this is where my odd schedule messes me up because it’s now after 11PM and I have to be up at 5 and on the road at 6AM and a morning person I am not. Ohhhh coffee here I come!
