I stopped working fairly early yesterday as I just couldn't concentrate on what I was supposed to be doing anymore. I'm having that problem again today but in a different way. In reality I am working, but the work I'm doing involves waiting for some scans to get done. I HATE waiting. I am also working on some copy but tend to get bored with the monotony of reading what I've written over and over. This often leads me to write the same thing over and over. You know, the same adjectives, catch-phrases, etc.
I'm getting off work early today to go help with my nieces. Really, I'll be spending the majority of the time with one of them as the other one is at an appointment with my mom. Fortunately, my nieces like crafts and I can totally work with that interest. I'm taking over my 'small bead soup' (mostly seed beads with a few other beads mixed in) and some ring memory wire. Basically, I grabbed the first thing I could think of/ find in the craft room this morning when I remembered that today was the day I was going to be with her. I know seed beads tend to be kinda hard for little fingers to use. I hope her fine motor skills are up to the task. I may stop on the way to grab a few extra supplies. She tends to like cutting, pasting, and drawing. I'm trying to broaden her craft resume. We'll see how it goes.
