self-portrait day

week 31


project 52, week 31
Yesterday I was a slacker. I photographed a church service in the morning, went to lunch with friends, and proceeded to spend the rest of the afternoon just spending time with my husband. I read, he watched some show. We snuggled with our respective pets, and I didn't sit down at my desk until the sun was long gone and the house was getting chilly.
This may seem like a small thing, but for me it's a big deal. A day of free time, hours without commitments, and I'm not working? This feels wrong somehow. Even when I'm caught up on work that has to be done, there's always about 5 more projects that I need to do, skills I need to master. And yet...sometimes it's more important to spend time with those you love.
I'm trying to find the balance. So far, it's not going so well.
