Morning Meanderings… Out Of Control

1a

Good morning!ย  For a while there I wasn’t sure if I would get this post up or not, but by doing things out-of-order this morning actually led to this post title so you know… all good things and all that. ๐Ÿ™‚

I woke up a little later than usual, I usually pop awake by 6:45 – 7ish every morning but today I got up at 8.ย  I have been knocking out deadlines all week and started a new project yesterday that I think left me feeling a little exhausted.ย  I am also a combination night owl (go to bed around 11-midnight) and an early bird.

Eep! I like the morning qualities and half of the evening!

 

Anyhoo (sooooo easy to get off subject!), my plan was to write this post, answer emails, look at job proposals, hit my downstairs gym, clean up, and head up town by 11 am where I would complete all my tasks, be home by 1 and finish a book I am enjoying and later work on the Friends website.

In actuality it has gone something like this…

Up and started looking at emails. Responded to those I needed to and then went on to my book email (this is where it all went south)… my book email is where I communicate with authors and publishers and bloggers.ย  I have neglected this email for a couple of weeks now as I just have not had time to go through the requests.ย  For some reason this morning I was in the mood.ย  I not only responded to all the emails, even letting them know if the book was not a fit for me, I also wrote the questions for an author I am interviewing later this month, and looked up author websites, wondered if I should sign up for Edelweiss and then wondered if perhaps I already was signed up with Edelweiss …. and

well you know how it can be…. I got stuck in a bookish time warp.

The one funny that came out of this was I agreed to read a new YA book coming out (a sequel) and the publisher said that if I would like they would send the first book “Control” along with so I could read both books.ย  I agreed to both.ย ย  The publisher than responded that the books would come in separate packages as their office was currently out of CONTROL.ย  I found that to be funny and responded to the email,

“I had to laugh when you said your office was out of CONTROL!”

 

Ahhh good Friday morning humor.ย  SO now, this post is done and I am behind on my plan for today but that is ok.ย  It is Friday!ย  Glorious Friday and maybe I will hit the gym a little later than I had planned, but it will happen. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have an awesome start to your weekend!ย  My weekend will mainly be catch up on all the projects I have going so going into next week will feel a little smoother. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. This happens to me too and I am sure to many folks.

    You will get it all done.

    I am both Morning and Night, but not the negative night adjectives. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for this wonderful post.

    • I know it will get done, I am taking it one step at a time and dont like feeling pushed ๐Ÿ˜€ I dont believe I am the negative night ones either, I wonder if that applies to those that stay up until 2 or 3 am? LOL – I dont do that!

  2. I can totally relate! When I finally get in the mood to respond to the book email I get caught up in it and lose track of time. Hmmm. I’m supposed to be editing right now so that means I’m already two hours behind ‘schedule’ for today.

    I’m a 7am to 1am person, so for me that list of attributes would need to include ‘tired’. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I wake up for work at 4am every day so I am exhausted by the time I leave at 4. But I am great in the morning because I truly am one of those morning people.

    • That’s my hubby – he is up by 4 am every day but then is shot by 8 pm. Thats the way his “internal alarm” works, it was hard for me to adjust to that but now I know to spend time with him when he is home and awake and then when he goes to bed I can go back to my writing or watching a movie ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Hah – that was funny! And it sounds like you did get a lot done, just not what you’d planned!

  5. I enjoyed this post. I am a morning person – it perked me up!

  6. I always plan to catch up over the weekend but my Mondays are usually spent planning to catch up NEXT weekend!
