I hate January.
Particularly the first half of January when everything seems to stop and freeze in place.
As usual, not a thing is moving with my customers and business probably won’t kick into gear until the middle or end of the month. Don’t ask me why this happens, cause I don’t know. All I do know is that it does, and it’s awful.
In the meantime, since there’s nothing to haul, I’ve been cleaning up and fixing issues my poor old laptop has had for a while now, which means I’ve been fighting with stupid add-ons, cleaning up files, deleting unused programs, and generally beating my head on a brick wall waiting for all of that to get done.
And ignoring housework. Which I’ve gotten better at over the years. I can actually leave my dishes in the sink for almost an entire day without feeling too guilty, which reminds me I need to go wash up in the kitchen as soon as I’m finished here. I’m usually pretty good about not leaving dishes overnight, but this week I did, and now I’m feeling bad about it.
Another down side to down weeks. If I had a load booked, those dishes would be done and put away already, my bag would be packed and ready to go, and there would be a fresh pot of coffee brewing for the thermos…
But not today!
Maybe business will revive itself by next week. I sure hope so, anyway.
