Well it would be so nice to report that I spent my three days off immersed in Plant Kid’s story but alas, that was not the case. I was buried, nose to the grindstone only coming up to breathe buried, in the work-for-hire stuff. I had 8 stories due on Sunday night. It would have only been 4 but I got the bright idea (smack me next time, will you please?) to do two different versions for them. I must be into pain, that’s all I can say. And I didn’t ask for enough money for the project which makes me mad because there is a lot of research needed. Live and learn, right? 

I continue to ponder the reasons why I felt so compelled to take on this project. Yes, there are a lot of household projects we want to do (like putting in an actual yard, a new roof, new heating/AC, redo a bathroom, etc – you know – cheap stuff) and money is always useful to have. But I also can’t help but wonder if it was a bit of self-sabotage just when things were getting interesting with Plant Kid. 

That idea scares me just a bit.
