Month Impossible: Day Four

Tomato from my yard

Two steps forward, one back. I created two drawings today while watching football, meaning that I caught up a little on DrawMo but am still one day behind. I also wrote a bit this evening.

I would have been smart to not watch any football at all — the teams will perform the same whether I’m monitoring their progress or not. I could have used the afternoon more efficiently by sitting at home, typing and drawing and doing laundry.

And yet, Sunday afternoons are the time I connect with my family. Ordinarily we watch the Steelers play, and we have a big group meal. This weekend was different in that the Steelers won’t play until tomorrow night, and I won’t be with the rest of the family to watch it — I’ll be at the game. (Woo-hoo!) But even though we watched other teams, we had the same kinds of discussions, the same rants at the terribly game announcers. It’s not cutting edge or obviously productive, but it’s a way of staying in touch with each other and sharing.

Still, I wish I’d written more today. I’ll try to get at least 1000 words before I sleep. If I can’t catch up, at least I can limit how far I fall behind.
