Long drives make me lazy. Or maybe just tired. On Tuesday and Wednesday, I drove from Williamsburg to Florida. Ahead of time, I imagined that once I got here, I would immediately begin NaNoWriMo levels of writing productivity, in between visiting and catching up with all my local family and friends, plus taking care of some van jobs, like fixing the bathroom door, replacing the air-conditioner cover, scrubbing off the dead bugs, and so on.
In reality, I’ve been reading and listening to music and eating too much sugar and enjoying being mellow in a very comfortable driveway.
In fact, I’ve been so lazy that in my Streaks app, I broke all my streaks except two: writing 1000 words every morning and writing 2 blog posts/week. And yeah, this blog post is just so I don’t break that streak. I would actually much rather be napping.

I had a similar habit app that I used for a long time. But then I’d break streaks when I left on trips or for other reasons and then feel discouraged. Sometimes I’d just start over, or sometimes, I’d delete the habit and then put it in again, so I didn’t have the broken streak in my history anymore.
Being pregnant, moving, and now having baby, life is just to chaotic for me to get good streaks so I’ve quit using it because I find the times I break streaks to be too demoralizing. I wish I could find a similar app that encouraged long streaks, but somehow didn’t make me feel like a failure when I miss a day (or 18).
Also, maybe it would help if I wasn’t such a perfectionist and I could handle seeing that I’d missed some days.

Lol that could be my mantra- I’d rather be napping.
Nothing wrong with naps — naps are a necessary part of life!
