Who wants to do away with Monday? *raises hand* Which is sorta dumb because then Tuesday would be the new Monday. And poor Tuesday is sort of the poor relation of the week as it is. Think about it. Everyone bemoans Monday. Wednesday is Hump Day and people celebrate because they’re on the downhill slide to the weekend. Thursday is the day before Friday. And Friday is…well…TGIF! Saturday and Sunday need no explanation, unless you work retail and are stuck in the store those days, which means your whole week is messed up and I’m sorry. And then there’s Tuesday. It’s just…Tuesday. Anyway.
So, we had snow, sleet and ice Saturday. In Oklahoma. During a month when we normally have thunderstorms, hail, and our share of tornadoes. Go figure. It was a good day to stay home, read (or listen to) a book, snuggle under the covers and nap. Which meant I needed to work yesterday. Which I did. Some. I’m working on the first sexy scene, which happens in Chapter Two. The H/h don’t waste any time.
There was baseball this weekend. My poor Cards are up and down. And Yadi got into it with the Diamondbacks’ manager. It was ugly. The manager was tossed, the home plate umpair was doing his best to calm Yadi down so he didn’t get tossed. See? I told you it was bad. Still, makes for an interesting game. Cards lost though. That puts them back to one game back of .500. 😦
I finished Jennifer Ashley’s Shifters Unbound series. New book comes out the end of the month. I’m glad because there’s a bit of a cliffhanger in the overall plot arc, though RED WOLF came to a satisfactory end for the H/h. I enjoy her writing. I moved on the Shelley Laurenston’s HOT AND BADGERED, which is set in her shifter world. Lord but she’s funny sometimes and I do love the honey badgers and the bears. I’m just over 1/3 of the way through the book and I keep grinning and laughing. Traci Odom is doing an outstanding job of narrating.
Live PD was back live this weekend. I totally ❤ the show and Sgt. Sean "Sticks" Larson from the Tulsa PD Gang Unit, who's become something of a regular studio commentator. They do a segment on missing people and a viewer actually called in to the Center for Missing and Exploited Children with a sighting of a little girl they featured a couple of weeks ago. She's now been recovered. LUCIFER is getting…tense. THE ALIENIST has run it's course. So I'm doing lots of baseball and listening to books.
And that's pretty much the sum total of my life at the moment. Saturday's weather negated Only, Stormageddon and I getting together for lunch. Baseball Boy's tournament was canceled so they stayed in. Lawyer Guy's meeting went ahead as scheduled but he didn't go. Like the kids, we stayed in, even though late afternoon turned out okay once the sun came out and the wind died down. Still felt like January rather than April. Today, I'm going to work really hard to finish up the proposal. I need to stop jacking around and just do it. I have way too much on my writing plate this year to procrastinate, no matter how much I want to.
So, on that note, I'm off to work, right after I get one more cup of coffee. What are you going do today?
