Friday Stir Fry - Three Ring Circus
Love this picture! How many of us feel that way, balancing on a high wire, just trying to get to a safe place?
The circus is coming to town this weekend and that brings up a bunch of similes. Life is a three ring circus, or a balancing act, or funnier than a mini car full of clowns or I feel like a caged tiger. I'm sure there's more, my weary brain just can't think of them right now.
Why is my brain weary? Work is one reason. It's Friday and it's been a hard week at work. Our computer system was down for two days. Man, without that, there just isn't much you can do. You can't look things up, or print letters or schedules. I even gave up answering the phone because I couldn't look up answers to the questions. And our clients have lots of questions and they don't take the word 'no' easily. So, I've spent the rest of this week in catch up mode.
And, as I noted last week, I am participating in CampNaNoWriMo. My daily word goal is low - only 679, but that has been tough this week. I managed until last night when my tired brain just would not generate any words. The circus was over, packing up and leaving town. I'm hoping I can get my energy back this weekend and whip my word count into shape before it eats me alive.
Do you have any comparisons between life and the circus you want to share?
