I've started this entry twice already and deleted it. I don't know. I'm having trouble finding the words today.

I'm full of conflicted feelings about this freelance opportunity. I mean, it's EXACTLY the kind of thing I want to do. It's just the timing. We got our orders today, which means we can finally get this show on the road in terms of preparing for the move: booking a moving company, setting up my car to be shipped, etc. We have tons of tedious tasks to do between now and January. Some time-consuming, some not.

Do I have time to add a full-time freelance project into the mix? I hope so. I mean, I want to do this. But I don't know. Can we put off some moving tasks for weekends? After work hours? Lance gets time off to deal with some of these things, at least. If I take this gig, I won't have the time to help him.

All I know is, I have to make my decision by tomorrow. And then I have to move quickly to actually set up a decent space to do my work, since I currently don't have a space to write. (I write from the couch, laptop in my lap, dogs curled up next to me - not the best environment for productivity.)

But this is how life works, right? Great opportunities come when you least expect them. And if they're worth it, you make the time. This would give me a head start when we get to D.C. I'll already have a job, which will give me the energy to focus on getting settled in. Of course, it's only a temporary position, but it'll give me the chance to make some contacts in the area that might lead me to more things.

More pros than cons here, I'm thinking.
