Days off are dangerous

Yesterday was a day off of running. I really shouldn't do that anymore. By the end of the day I just feel so listless, lazy, and lethargic (I rock the alliteration). It also doesn't help that I am feeling pretty discouraged about the lack of response I have gotten toward my fundraising efforts. It takes a long time to write letters, print them, address the envelopes, distribute them, or gather email addresses for everyone you know, write an email, and send it. I don't mean to sound whiny, I am just worried. I am not sure what to do to get through to people since what I have been doing doesn't seem to be getting much of a response at all. I really, really appreciate the people who have made donations, and I know that there are family members who are going to be making donations in the very near future, but as for everyone else...? The whole thing has got me feeling a little down, I must say.

So here is my keep your head above water song for the day, which I think will probably cheer me up a little bit:

Love. It.

There are times, every so often, when I have an urge to turn my desk speakers up REALLY LOUD and act like I'm in an action montage or doing something really dramatic. I'd like to coordinate these manuscripts with GREAT HAND GESTURES! and have GREAT BACK-UP MUSIC!

Of course that tends to get one fired.
