Well I'm Swamped With Work

Holyyyy smokes, am I swamped with work! I did a bunch of assignments yesterday and wound up saving five of them for today. I set them up last night, so it didn't take as long to complete them. I received three more writing assignments and thought "Oh good, eight is usually the amount I try to do."

And then I received more...and more....and wound up with 16 assignments today. Counting the five I did earlier, that's 21 assignments total. Luckily, I have several days before their deadline(s).

Did I try to do 21 assignments in one day? Noooo. If I even try that, I'm going to reach burnout and I'm not trying to do that. I am completing three from that batch, plus the five from earlier, and that's eight for today. I am splitting the other assignments up between Thursday and Friday, and I do plan to set them up tonight.

I did write my client and let them know that I would only be able to accept three more assignments for the week, since I already had a bundle and wanted to make sure I had enough time to work on them. I chose three because that would bring the total assignments for Friday up to eight. Now it is almost the end of the month, so if they do not send me three other assignments, I can grab them from the job board. I think I went over my weekly quota anyways so I am not worried about it. I'm not going to be in town on Saturday though, so I do not want to stay up super late writing or blogging.

The good news is, I pretty much have all the work I need for the week, so I don't need to spend time looking through the job board. I have it all in my pending draft and I have a few days to complete them all. I do have a doctors appointment tomorrow for my foot, but no babysitting, so I should have plenty of time to get things done. I'll especially have time if I set them up in advance, which I plan to do.

Alrighty, I'm starting to ramble, so let me get out of here lol. I'll try to post more this week, and go through my comments, but that won't be happening on Saturday. I don't even think I'll be online much, if at all. You all take care and enjoy the rest of your week. :)

Those are too much to juggle. But you can do it

Being busy sure helps the day go by faster and your days must be flying by with all that to do.

I split it up between the days so it wasn't as overwhelming. :)

I don't mind the work, but I don't want them to send me too much, to the point of being stressed out. I wound up splitting up the work between the days though.
