Day 88:  They’re baaaack!

Day 88.  I wake up from a crazy dream where my oral surgeon is drilling a hole in my head at my follow up appointment.  Disturbing.  I hope tomorrow at my actual appointment no drills are involved.

I decide to flip my day.  I normally immediately turn on my cell phone and my laptop to check emails and Facebook and then write my daily report.  Today, I decide to flip that around and do it all at the end of the day instead.  I only turn on my cell long enough to check for emergencies and Facebook a quick “congrats” to a friend who is about to give birth via C-section.  I fire up the Avid.  I’m determined to get a lot done for my crusade today.

Midway through the day I am about to throw in the towel and watch Dr. Oz when it dawns on me:  my gluten free, sugar free brownies are soft if I leave out the walnuts.  That’s right, the brownies are back!  I had a kick ass 12-hour editing day that yielded not only a completed scene 12 bin prepped and ready to go for Dan the Amazing Editor Man but also a completed scene 13!  I may need the grease and pliers again soon to get on my skinny jeans but I don’t care.  The gooey warm chocolate deliciousness not only kept me going but it was a much needed treat after a week of shitty pain and gallons of green juice.  Brownie fueled determination is awesome.  Get it done!

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…determination.
