I finally managed to scribble down some preliminary plans for the coming two weeks on when to work at what. Just doing that felt amazing. One thing I have realized, and is starting to come to terms with, is that children at Zoe’s age are very unpredictable when it comes to their routines. Unpredictability is my nemesis sometimes, because I love to plan everything to the minute. It’s how I work. Now, however, I have to adjust and take every opportunity I have to get going with what I want to do.
I’m not blaming Zoe for being unpredictable, babies are – end of story. I simply have to adapt to her needs, not the other way around. Anyway, the unpredictability has left my calendar empty for a while, and that in turn makes me unproductive in my work. However, today I have been feeling extra productive. Went to the lab and got the culture going, looked and printed out some relevant articles, and I hope I can get some writing done. I’ve been lazy on that front, which is awful, but that only means I can get better at it as of now.
About those bad news… My grandma is hospitalized again, and this time the doctors can’t do anything about it. I hate cancer. There. It’s out. It makes me appreciate things even more, although at the same time it breaks me. I try not to over-think things. Oh well, time to make dinner. Write you laters!
