What does it mean to not be a writer on deadline?

1. I slept in until after 8 am

2. I made the kidlets breakfast (my five year old can now make her own toast or heat up a frozen waffle on her own. Yikes!)

3. I talked to people on the phone (i.e. I actually dialed a couple of times and answered when it rang!)

4. I folded laundry and cleaned up the reams of paper strewn across the floor of my bedroom

5. I took the kidlets out to lunch, ate there and let them each have a 25 cent ATV ride

6. I napped and didn't feel guilty

7. I rubbed and loved my pets

8. I ordered refills on cat's Hyper T medicine

9. I went to Crossfit and made it through 3 rounds (WOD: run, 15 medicine ball throws 10#) even though sweat was running down my back and I was sure I'd stop breathing any minute and die

8. I went to the grocery store. Boy, have prices gone up since the last time I was there

9. I ate dinner with the family instead of at my computer

10. I watched a movie with my family, National Treasure, which none of us had scene before. We loved it! Now we want to see the sequel

11. I started reading a book that arrived a couple of weeks ago, The Latin-Centered Curriculum (a homeschooling book)

12. I critiqued an online read for a Steeple Hill author

Next up, finish sending all those blog contest prizes out! I'm way, way behind! Getting info for my new author page to LASR. Commenting on all my favorite blogs. Figuring what to work on next. Sleeping as much as possible!

When you have/feel a newfound sense of freedom, what do you do?
