This morning, my alarm went off and once again I could have used a crane to get me out of my bed! I hate that, really I do! Most of this year, I would get up at 5 o’clock, go through my fifteen minute prep for running by listening to Tony Robins, who is awesome, and then go for a 45 minute run at the high school track, which by the way, is only one block from my home!
Perhaps it is the seasonal change!? I love the holidays but dread the being shut in for three months. Some say that it might be that “Seasonal Depression” thing people can get, that would be my luck, lol! However, I did not get out of my bed until 6:30a.m. and drug my feet, which I don’t like to do, but when your tired; into my bathroom for a very fast shower before grabbing the work I had generated late last night and needed to run to the post office.
Now working for a small, quaint, lumber yard, it is a sure guess that my boss will work with me, should I need to run an errand, which I did! I walked into work and right up into his office. I asked if he had any post that needed to go out, he said no. I then quickly said I would need to go to a post office before the end of the day, (which on Saturday is Noon) to take care of some things. Two hours later, I was on my way to the post office.
My town has a not-so-large post office, so tiny, that the postmaster, herself, runs the counter everyday and I am ever so thankful that the postal service voted, narrowly, to keep it open and keep Marcie in a job. You got it, I call her Marcie! I have been coming into the post office so much this year, that have become a first name basis customer. She always asks, “Where you got stuff going this time?” Today was no different, for last night I sat up late and put together two mailings for agents in New York City and was needing a money order to send off Barney & Lexi to Brooklyn to Boulevard’s Short Story Contest. I like my little post office very much, it is close by and Marcie is ever so helpful. In fact, she and I discussed DBA (Doing Business As) forms that I have to fill out to run all of my works under one business name, fun stuff that cost money, for short! It all costs money thought, LOL!
I got home and found an opportunity waiting for me via Facebook, Professional Publications is having an online editing contest for stories and I jumped on and entered it! As always, I’m going to keep my fingers crossed and look for the best! Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens said it best one time, “If you ever do anything…don’t waste talent”! True words from a man who knows first hand!
I will have my little boys, Ethan & Rylen tonight, as Lynden was invited to a hockey game and will not be home until late. I hope Smokey, (our black cat) gets some sleep before then, cause, it is going to be a long night for him! Look for daily posts and never be afraid to write, I read every comment and thank you for reading! I would also enjoy having you like my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/imaginaryfox ! I hope you Live With Passion! (as Tony would say)
